Pico Projectors to become Blockbusters

At least once a week, a projector press release is published. These are typically focused on how much brighter they are than previous models, support for 3D, 4K and other wizardly, but the pico projector market is set to boom.

The combination of a pico projector and smartphone or tablet is unbeatable for those who want to travel light or organize impromptu meetings. In large company, scheduling a conference room or AV resources can be near impossible and huddling round a single PC screen or tablet gets impractical beyond two or three people.

Many presentations don’t require home theater-quality size or fidelity: just being able to throw something up on the office or hotel room wall on the spur of the moment is more than adequate for collaboration.

Current models include wireless technologies such as Bluetooth and Wifi and smartphone and digital camera vendors are also planning to integrate a projector into the phone.

Today’s market is around $490m and is projected to grow to over $8bn by 2016 (75% CAGR).

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
