Immersing yourself in an intense movie or relaxing with friends on a cold winter’s nights are all well and good if you can afford the luxury of a 100inch TV, but when you’re huddled around a more commonly sized TV, the experience is somewhat diminished. This explains the reasoning for the growing popularity of beam projectors, and this demand led to the development of ASSEMBLE.
ASSEMBLE undoubtedly elevates the experience of watching a film by providing the users with a cinema-level experience in the comfort of their living rooms. In addition to projecting the action onto a nearby wall, the speakers that make up ASSEMBLE’s body can be removed and placed wherever the user desires, for an engaging, surround sound experience!
Every-last detail, from the finger-grooves in the speaker through to the accompanying remote, have been considered in great depth. This leads to a device that we would quite happily have to replace our out-dated looking TVs!
Roy Orbison has been dead since 1988 but that didn't stop him from going on a North American tour last winter. Nor has it stopped Whitney Houston, Ronnie James Dio and the Notorious B.I.G. -- or at least their estates -- from reincarnating these dece...
Being able to share memories with friends whilst on-the-go or immerse yourself in films on the big-screen whilst in the comfort of your own home is possible with the use of a projector. The Swivel Projector concept takes this to the next level with the use of small dimensions and a nifty operation method.
Swivel is truly pocket-sized. The tightly packed unit fits comfortably within the palm of the hand, meaning it can be carried around almost unnoticeable. When the projector is not in use you would be forgiven in not being able to determine the product’s function; any identifiable features such as the lens and power input are concealed within and outer-section, only to be revealed when the bezel is rotated. Not only does this action turn on the device, but it also ensures that it is positioned at the correct angle for the image to be displayed correctly onto the wall.
The aptly named Soap Beam might take inspiration from the shape of a soap bar, but it has next to nothing to do with getting fresh and clean. The device is actually a portable projector designed to be used with a smartphone. No larger than a phone itself, the design is easy to tote, carry, and pack. Better yet, it features a simplistic and intuitive interface that makes it possible to plug and play in seconds. Simply hook it up to your smartphone and instantly share your favorite movies, music videos, and photo albums with friends.

Designer Daeun Joung’s latest concept looks like nothing more than a three-dimensional piece of wall art… but it’s that and more. The sculptural design actually triples as a short throw projector and wireless speaker.
Disguised as art on your wall, it frees up the surface real estate that most wireless speakers occupy. Working in tandem with the COZY app on your phone, the design can stream your favorite tunes and display a variety of customized notifications on your wall. Sync it up to preview a live stream of the news or make it display the weather, time, and stocks.
LG isn't the first company bringing a 4K short-throw projector to CES and it inevitable will not be the last. What the company claims, however, is that with its subtle design and AI-powered voice control the CineBeam Laser 4K could realistically blen...
It was two years ago that we first came across Anker's soda-can media center, the Nebula Capsule. The all-in-one entertainment device crammed a projector and Bluetooth speaker into a portable package with a respectable 2.5-hour battery life. Anker's...

This little projector takes ‘compact’ to a whole new level! Clever, space-saving design matched with a minimalistic approach, gives us a device that takes up limited space. Simply pop it into your bag and carry it with you!
The rectangular design is interrupted when the remote-control is removed from a recess in the top surface. And once the remote is out, it makes room for the device to expend heat more efficiently. An aspect of the design that we love is how the angle of the projector is adjusted; by gently pressing down on the top surface, one side of the projector automatically lifts, the angle of which can then be adjusted.
This is truly a wonderfully simple device, that is free from unnecessary frills and un-wanted bulk!
