LG launches its first portable projector

LG HS102

It uses an LED bulb which LG claims will last the lifetime of the projector, and uses less energy than a conventional bulb.

The £550 HS102 is finished in black, with red touch-sensitive buttons that mirror those used on some of LG's other portable products such as its mobile phones.

Embedded DiVX technology enables the user to play video, MP3 and photo files directly from devices connected via the USB input. The unit can project an image up to 60in, and speakers are built in.

The aspect ratio is 4:3, resolution 800 x 600 and contrast ratio 2000:1.
