Vuzix M4000 is the company’s new flagship product in its corporate M series uses Qualcomm’s 2.52Ghz Octa-core Snapdragon XR1, the same processor used in its direct predecessor the M400 and in the Google Glass 2, 6GB LPDDR4 System RAM, 64GB internal flash memory. They use their self-developed fully transparent waveguide display which has a larger field-of-view to bring vast advantages in work areas such as remote maintenance.
TI DLP 0.23” World’s Smallest 1080p Projector, $899 4K, $1499 Short-throw 4K, Touch, $999 3D Printer
The DLP230NP digital micromirror device (DMD) is a digitally controlled micro-opto-electromechanical system (MOEMS) spatial light modulator (SLM). When coupled to an appropriate optical system, the DMD displays a crisp and high quality 1080p image or video. The chipset comprises this DMD and the DLPC3436 controller. The DLPA2000, DLPA2005, and DLPA3000 PMIC/LED drivers also support this chipset. The compact physical size of the device applies to portable equipment where high image quality, small form factor, and low power are important.
Ultra Compact 0.23-Inch (5.95-mm) Diagonal Micromirror Array
Displays 1920 × 1080 Pixels On the Screen
5.4 µm Micromirror Pitch
17° Micromirror Tilt (Relative to Flat Surface)
Side Illumination for Optimal Efficiency and Optical Engine Size
Polarization Independent Aluminum Micromirror Surface
8-Bit SubLVDS Input Data Bus
Dedicated DLPC3436 Controller for Display Applications
Dedicated DLPA2000, DLPA2005, or DLPA3000 PMIC/LED Driver for Reliable Operation
Texas Instruments presents their latest DLP470TP projector chipset that enables cheaper and more compact 4K Projectors, using LED and Laser light sources, this enables 4K Pico Projectors, 4K Portable Projectors like the Optoma UHL55 which I filmed here more affordable Ultra Short Throw 4K projectors are possible too like the ones from Jmgo which I filmed here Most Cinema projectors use DLP, and Texas Instruments here have even further reduced the size, power consumption and price of their 4K Projector solution, their DLP660TE enables projectors up to 5000 lumens, DLP470TE for projectors needing over 1500 lumens while the new DLP470TP goes in projectors that use below 1500 lumens, thus making portable pico 4K Projectors now possible. In this video, TI also shows some of the newest on-table smart interactive projectors such as the Puppy Cube and the Bosch projector PAI, then also TI shows the new concept of the Smart Speaker Short Throw Pico Projector such as the Humax Vision, a new segment to be integrated with Alexa or Google Assistant and projecting onto a nearby wall all the smart speaker information displayed. In this video TI also shows the personal assistant looking like a holographic 3D image floating in space.
Optoma UHL55 ($1599 at Amazon.com) is world's first portable "pico class" 4K DLP Projector (on TI's new 0.47" DLP470TP chip) with 1500lumen brightness from a 30,000 hour RGBB LED light source, four HDR10 picture modes, the most compact 4K projector, yet it includes a powerful speaker for portable all-in-one use. Optoma UHL55 runs Android with a built-in 4K HDR media player with USB media playback, supports Alexa and Google Assistant for voice commands, Stereo audio through two 8-watt speakers with Dolby Digital decoding and Bluetooth audio input and output, Protective sliding lens cover, Auto focus and auto keystone for easy place and play without needing to calibrate it before each use.
Optoma unveils their 4K UST Laser 3000 ANSI Lumen, 2M:1 contrast ratio projector. With a 0.25:1 ultra short throw ratio, it support HDR, HLG, Android OS, Alexa, Google Voice, it projects at up to 120" also features Nuforce audio sound bar integrated. Nuforce was acquired by Optoma to provide this type of high quality sound bar style audio to their short throw projectors like this one.
Android Treble implemented on TI Beagle-X15 development board which is ARM Cortex-A15, making the upgrade process easier. So there is no need to communicate with the vendor to upgrade a device.
UC San Diego Professor Thomas Bewley discusses his Segway-like educational robotics kit, eduMIP, based on the BeagleBone Blue at Linaro Connect Vancouver 2018. This inexpensive kit (available online, for $128, at Renaissance Robotics https://www.renaissancerobotics.com/eduMIP.html) is used in his Embedded Control & Robotics course at UCSD, which Prof Bewley is currently working on taking online as a MOOC. It is also beginning to be used by a community of researchers and educators at other universities around the world. In this video, Prof Bewley also introduces his early efforts in developing new (and, significantly higher-power) motor-control daughterboards in the 96boards and Raspberry Pi formats. He also discusses eduMIP v.2 and some other advanced prototypes in his lab, as well as the Robot Control (RC) software library that drives this hardware, and will ultimately enable easy porting of control codes across the BeagleBone, Raspberry Pi, and 96boards linux-based product lines, in addition to deployment onto very-low-cost custom targets based on Cortex M based processors running an RTOS. His ultimate goal with this ambitious effort is to facilitate a much more seamless pathway from lab prototype to commercial product.
Peter Griffin and his colleagues of the Linaro Home Group demonstrate some of their latest advancements with AOSP TV such as their OP-TEE DRM integrations, Playready, Widevine, ClearKey on HiKey, TI X15, iMX8M, Poplar using AOSP and Linux, Chromium and WPE. DRM Secure Data Path on i.MX8M.
Optoma shows their next generation 4K DLP Laser Ultra Short Throw Projector Prototype, at 8-inches distance it generates over 100" diagonal sized 4K image on the wall, 2300lumen, 2.000.000:1 contrast ratio, 0.25 throw ratio, HDR compatible. 25-thousand hours life due Laser solid state. It's using the first generation 0.67" 4K TI DLP chipset. They plan to release it around the end of Q2 2018 priced around $4000-6000.
