Want To See What Your iPad Videos Look Like Projected at 100 Inches?

The SHOWWX+ laser projector is 50% brighter than its predecessor, throwing video at 15 lumens with a 5,000:1 contrast ratio for 2 hours with a built-in battery. It's designed specifically for iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touches, so it has a dock connector and can project all your Netflix goodies without any DRM hang-ups.

Because it's a laser projector, the SHOWWX+ has "infinite focus," as MicroVision calls it, allowing the image to be projected crisply on curved surfaces, or when the device isn't perfectly perpendicular to the surface it's projecting on. Its native resolution is 848 x 480, not quite HD, and it includes composite cables in the box for non iOS devices. But pair this thing with some AirPlay speakers and your iPad theater just got a lot more compelling. Available now for $450.

iphone videos probably wouldn't look too good in HD anyways, since the iphone screen has a resolution far smaller than anything in HD.

Hmmm,this would be good if I had a movie theater type room or something.

Great, more things to buy in order to justify the purchase of the iPad.

Its neat, but with the pricetag of the projector + the price of apple products, it just wouldn't be worth it
