I have talked about Sceptre a few times. The company makes lots of TVs and computer monitors that sell at good prices and look really cool too. I am a fan of all the colors they offer including chrome monitors and TVs.

Sceptre Luna Pocket Projector is Unveiled

Sceptre has announced a new product that is the first of its kind from the company. It is a small pocket projector called the Luna. The Luna is under an inch thick and weighs 2.6 ounces. It is made to connect to your MP3 player or smartphone to share video content on the fly wherever you want. It’s small enough that it can also double as your MP3 player.

“The modern society places demands on immediacy, portability and usability, and the Luna meets all those needs in one tiny package,” stated Cathy Chou, Vice President of Operations, Sceptre. “By combining the functionality of a projector and MP3 player, the Luna allows the user to enjoy music and share content and information wherever and whenever needed.”

The device supports just about every movie and audio format out there including AVI, MOV, MPEG, JPEG, BMP, MP3 and WMA. The Luna ships with a 2GB microSD card for storage and that can be expanded to 32GB. It comes in white with silver trim and has interchangeable skin protectors in black, pink, and blue colors. It will be offered at QVC, Amazon, Wal-Mart, and NewEgg and at many other locations for $169.99.

The resolution of the projector is 640 x 480 and it uses white LEDs for light. The projector can through an image from 5" to 50" from up to 99" from the projector surface. The life for the LEDs is up to 20,000 hours. When used as a media player the battery is good for five hours and when projecting it's good for one hour. The key spec that Sceptre leaves out is the lumen rating of the projector. Poor brightness is something that every pocket projector I have ever used suffers from. If you buy this thing, plan to use it in a very dark room to get good results.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
