Since the dawn of time, humans have never faltered from their ambitions to climb the tallest mountains, read the longest books, and buy the largest televisions. These things dictated what it meant to be human—but no longer. With the release of Epson’s new MegaPlex MG-850HD we may never buy another television again. It’s that good.
The Neo-i stretches the very definition of what a pico projector is. First off, it’s too good to be a pico projector—the internal lens and engine are pulled straight from Optoma’s critically acclaimed PK301—but it also boasts an impressive stereo and iPod dock. Second, it’s too big to be a pico projector. Weighing in at 2.5 pounds, it’s neither handheld nor mobile. So what exactly is this thing?
This new projector from Optoma takes a different approach at iPhone and iPod projectors by integrating a dock into it. The Neo-i sound dock has a built-in 50 ANSI lumen DLP projector that offers WVGA resolution in 16:9 format. The dock has several ports on it, including VGA, HDMI, and audio in and out. You can also hook up an external battery pack to it and run it that way if you're, say, aching for a backyard projector party. Check out the video for a quick look.
