LG’s new projector throws a 150-inch 4K screen to your wall

Can play HDR video!

Published

While TV screens are continually getting bigger, LG hasn’t given up on the projector market. At CES 2018, the company is bringing a new 4K projector that breaks barriers without breaking wallets.

The LG HU80K is the company’s first 4K UHD projector. It promises ultra-sharp and vibrant images that rival those in the UHD TV segment. The tech’s promise has already garnered it a Best of Innovation award at CES.

The home-ready system can deliver up to a 150-inch screen at a blazing 2,500 lumens. At its size, the projector can easily playback videos at Blu-ray resolution. In addition, it’s compatible with HDR 10, allowing for images that will make you reconsider your TV purchases.

Despite its power, the HU80K is designed to be smaller than its competitors. The reduced size allows for a more conservative price that shouldn’t break the bank. Concept images also hint that the projector is capable of short-throw usage.

Its upright design makes the projector compatible with both portable and mounted use. Those who prefer the projector on a stand will enjoy the included carrying handle and Auto Cord feature. The Mirror Reflector may also act as a cover for the lens when the projector isn’t in use. A pair of built-in 7W speakers negates the need for an external sound bar or speaker system.

As for content, the HU80K comes with LG’s webOS 3.5 interface. The system enables access to the standard array of streaming services. The device is also compatible with USB, Ethernet, and HDMI cables. It also includes wireless support for keyboards and mice.

The LG HU80K projector joins LG’s new audio options and smart kitchen appliances on display at CES 2018.

TWICE x CASETiFY collection officially dropping on Feb 9

‘Full of love to ONCE’

Published

TWICE really knows how to make ONCEs (they’re fandom) feel special. The global superstar K-Pop group is teaming up with tech lifestyle brand CASETiFY for a special collection. The waitlist for their first ever collaboration has begun. The official release is set on February 9, 2023.

TWICE x CASETiFY

The collection was made to celebrate TWICE entering their 8th year. There’s a huge focus on ONCE as well as artworks inspired by the world of TWICE.

The TWICE-ful Love Grippy Case is the highlight of the collection. It’s decorated with a cushion designed with the TWICE Logo. It’s the first 3D phone case from CASETiFY with this kind of design. The case, however, is only available for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

But cheer up since the collection does include many other designs made for different smartphone models and gadgets. The lineup is filled with TWICE’s history and ONCE’s memories.

There’s a sticker case highlighting the tracks from the past seven years, a signature case with the members’ signatures, a Heart case with the members’ names, and lastly, an artwork featuring one of their top songs, “What is Love?”

For Apple-loving TWICE fans, there are also AirPod cases, Apple Watch bands, MacBook Sleeves, and a bead strap with the original heart color stones of all the members. There’s also a phone strap with TWICE logo metal charm.

Win a phone case signed by your TWICE bias

 

Whichever member is your favorite: Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, or Tzuyu, you’ll have a chance to win a case autographed by one of the members. CASETiFY STUDIO Shibuya Parco in Japan will have special wall displays with autographed cases and artwork from the collection. More details on the campaign coming soon.

The TWICE x CASETiFY collection launches worldwide on casetify.com/co-lab, available for purchase online, in the CASETiFY Co-Lab app (available now in the App Store), and at CASETiFY Studio locations.

Google is working on an AirTag competitor

Codenamed “grogu”

Published

on

Since its launch, the AirTag has created a whirlwind of controversy because of how the tracking device was used (or misused). Today, the general consensus is that the AirTag offers more benefits than potential drawbacks. Everyone now wants in. Google, according to a recent finding, is reportedly working on its own AirTag competitor.

Via Kuba Wojciechowski and Mishaal Rahman on Twitter, Google is developing quite a bit in the tracking device segment. The developers are currently expanding the lineup of Fast Pair to include support for more locator tags like the AirTag. However, besides support for other devices, the development also includes references to a first-party tracking device.

The device, “grogu” as it’s currently called, is under development by the Nest team. It will include on-board speakers and Bluetooth LE support.

Google has not hinted at any developments to confirm any upcoming tracking device. With the currently available information, it’s impossible to check what the final product will be called or what features it will come with.

A Google-based tracking device will still be a godsend for users, though. Currently, only Tile offers an alternative to the Apple-based AirTag. Besides allowing users to keep track of their misplaced devices, a tracking device is now an essential must-have for travelers to make sure airlines don’t accidentally misplace pieces of luggage.
