Sony is not new to the world of ultra short throw projectors, projectors so designed that they can sit only inches from the wall and still generate a geometrically correct image. But Sony’s 4K version is just mind blowing. The idea is that it’s large enough and stylish enough to act as a piece of furniture in your home, potentially replacing your whole entertainment center since it also features storage cabinets on the sides for other electronics. It’s able to shoot an image 66″ to 147″ across (depending on the wall-to-projector separation) at a 4096 x 2160 resolution. There’s “3D support and Sony’s Triluminous display capabilities as well”. But that’s on the front.
On the back of the appliance, facing your sofa, is a set of speakers that’ll project your movie’s sound straight into your bewildered face. But it’s not bewildered because the experience is so amazing, no… it’s like that because you’ll likely still be reeling from the projected $30,000 to $40,000 you’ll have to spend to own it.
