First interactive mini-projector

Published

on

Following Sony’s unveiling of the interactive Xperia Projector at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February, Easitech has announced Lazertouch, the first mini projector that transforms any surface into a finger-activated touchscreen.

Small, weighing just 5 ounces, Lasertouch  projects a tablet-sized 20-inch to gigantic 150-inch display onto any wall or surface to create a virtual touchscreen and interactive white board for meetings, presentations, 3D movies, immersive gaming, VR, and more.

Winner of 7 patents, with 5 years of R&D research, Lazertouch emits an invisible laser beam parallel to the projection screen. Much like a scene from a futuristic movie, when a finger or stylus touches the laser beam, the sensor detects and interprets the touch to add your comments, double click on an icon, stop or start a movie, or do anything else you would normally do with a touchscreen computer or device.

Lazertouch works the same as a tablet PC, featuring a built-in Android OS, downloadable apps, speakers, 32GB of storage, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a 13,600mAh rechargeable battery, and ports for HDMI, USB, headphones and Micro SD. Lazertouch comes with an IR e-pen stylus, remote control, and pointer.

Lazertouch is great for meetings, speeches, presentations and classes, with an instant push-to-start mode with no need for calibration — just turn on and go. Lazertouch is the only mini projector that allows you to use a finger to quickly perform operations on the screen – no need to worry about a lost stylus. Users can also write smoothly with the included e-pen stylus, helping you deliver a powerful whiteboard interactive presentation with notes and comments. It even includes a pointer for clarification and emphasis – the essential portable device for teachers, speakers, and business executives. When conducting a group meeting, Lazertouch projects an approximately 15-inch screen on a desk or table that can be operated by finger or stylus as you would a tablet. Its versatile operation lets you transition to full screen on an up to 150-inch wall when more people come into the meeting – and it even works with interactive advertising boards. Lazertouch’s LED projection lamp also promises years of use with an estimated lifetime of over 30,000 hours. See the Youtube video for meeting demo: https://youtu.be/nJ3ZTa6N0Vk

For at Home and School Use — Saves Eyesight Strain from Computer, Tablet and Smartphone Use – Supports 200-inch HD & 3D Movies

Lazertouch lets you watch 4K, 3D, or HD movies at home with your family, supporting 200-inch HD movies and immersive VR gaming, and projecting musical instruments, such as a drum or piano without damaging a tablet or other device.

CES: So long, and thanks for all the beer!

Last week, the Las Vegas expo showed off its fun side with state-of-the-art technologies for enjoying beer, writes BRYAN TURNER

Published

on

From craft beer-making machines to robots that pour beer, CES had more beer than usual in Las Vegas last week. And even free beer if you found the right stand. Stampede’s saloon-style booth offered beer to visitors who tried out its latest drones, virtual reality, and other gaming products. No beer tech, though.

Here are some of the beer technologies that stood out:

LG HomeBrew – Craft beer made at home

LG’s HomeBrew craft beer-making machine,  debuted at CES 2019, brings the brewing process home thanks to single-use capsules,  a self-cleaning feature, and an algorithm optimised for fermentation. 

Like a Nespresso coffee machine, the beer maker uses capsules, which contain malt, yeast, hop oil and flavouring. At the press of a button, LG HomeBrew automates the whole procedure from fermentation and carbonation to ageing. A companion app lets users check HomeBrew’s status at any time during the process, from their handsets.

The beer machine not only offers a simple way to make craft beer, but also enhances the quality of beer it makes. The fermentation algorithm intelligently controls the fermenting process with precise temperature and pressure control. It automatically sanitises itself, using nothing more than hot water, ensuring everything is hygienically clean for the next batch.

Designed with discerning beer lovers in mind, HomeBrew allows for in-home production of batches of more than 4 litres of beer in a variety of styles. The following five distinctive, flavoured beers are available now: 

  • Hoppy American IPA
  • Golden American Pale Ale
  • Full-bodied English Stout
  • Zesty Belgian-style Witbier
  • Dry Czech Pilsner

The only catch? It takes about two weeks to make, depending on the beer type.

“LG HomeBrew is the culmination of years of home appliance and water purification technologies that we’ve developed over the decades,” said Dan Song, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solutions Company. “Homebrewing has grown at an explosive pace, but there are still many beer lovers who haven’t taken the jump because of the barriers to entry, like complexity, and these are the consumers we think will be attracted to LG HomeBrew.”

CES: Alienware gets Legend-ary

Published

on

At CES in Las Vegas last week, Dell’s Alienware released a family of high-end, thin, light, and affordable machines for both amateur and professional gamers – and a new identity.

Alienware marked CES 2019 as a brand milestone with the debut of a new design identity, Alienware Legend. It aims to set a new bar of excellence for what gamers want most – performance and function. Alienware says it evaluated multiple concepts and chose one that was the biggest and boldest departure from its current look.

Alienware Legend, says the company, stays true to the brand’s core design tenets, taking cues from its deep roots in sci-fi culture and its early industrial designs, to distinguish the brand from the rest of the industry. The new Legend design is optimised with cutting-edge thermal cooling technology to achieve and sustain overclocking power, improved AlienFX lighting, and ultra-thin screen borders. It also unveiled a new “three-knuckle hinge” design that reduces the overall dimension while creating a stronger assembly, all combining to yield a better gaming experience.

“We’re excited to come to this year’s CES with some truly groundbreaking products, next-gen software and strategic partnerships that will bring more people to experience PC gaming and advance the industry,” said Frank Azor, vice president and general manager of Alienware. “The legend design answers the call for more and better from our gaming community, and the new G Series laptops will make PC gaming even more accessible to those looking for high-performance gaming at a cost they can appreciate.”
