Gadget Guy: Ultra definition TV

Sony 84-inch 4K Ultra High Definition TV

With four times the resolution of Full HD, Sony's huge new 84" TV is another step change in home entertainment. Described as ultra-definition TV, it incorporates Sony's market-leading picture technologies to provide the most immersive TV experience ever with a picture so stunning you can almost feel it.

The impact of the size of the 4K TV is hard to imagine as while the screen itself is a huge 84-inches, you can actually sit closer to the screen for a remarkably lifelike experience. The phenomenally high resolution (3840 x 2160) allows viewers to sit as close to the screen as half the distance required when viewing Full HD (for which three times the screen height is recommended) without being concerned by the pixels.

While there aren't many devices that can deliver 4K content currently, it is expected to be the "next big thing" in TV technology. In the meantime, your current HD content, for example from Blu-Ray, will play in upscaled format on the TV.

Wowee SHOWWX+ HDMI Laser Pico Projector

Just in case you ever need to conduct an emergency presentation, here is the world's first laser pico projector.

The Showwx+ does not come close to replacing a full sized projector but it does allow you to easily connect a video output-capable device. You can then spontaneously share photos, videos, presentations and more for a relatively big screen experience.

It's smaller than an iPhone yet it can project bright and colorful images which are always in focus thanks to the inbuilt laser technology.
