The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) for 2018 has kicked off in Vegas, and as usual, there has been some eye-popping innovations from tech companies old and new.
One of LG's most notable products set to debut this year is its 4K UHD HU80KA projector. If you ever wanted your own home theater but couldn't quite justify the cost, the right-sized screen—or wall—and this compact baby will do it for you.
This projector's size alone transforms the home viewing experience in that it makes it possible to haul it to a friend's place. How'd you like to be the guy who shows up for game day toting a cooler in one hand and the HU80KA in the other?
LG says the HU80KA uses laser light to project "perfect images whether it is placed on the floor, mounted on the wall or hanging from the ceiling."
Even better, the video fed into the projector could come from pretty much any source:
LG 4K UHD projector owners will have no shortage of content to watch, as the projector's webOS 3.5 smart TV interface can access the most popular online streaming services offering 4K content.
The device comes equipped with standard connectivity options for USB, Ethernet and HDMI ports, as well as wireless support for external devices such as a keyboard and mouse, offering endless access to high-quality content.
The awesome doesn't stop with the image. LG's 7W speakers will flesh out the feeling you're having a true movie-going experience at home. If you have an even better sound system, it's got Bluetooth capacity as well.
This isn't even the only device of its kind on display at CES. Sony has produced its own 4K projector. The LSPX-A1 will beam a 120-inch high def picture from a unit that—rather than being portable—easily blends in with most living room furniture.
Pricing on LG's HU80KA isn't available yet. The Sony LSPX-A1 currently sports a $30,000 price tag.
