Fits in your palm

Can you hold your giant screen HDTV in the palm of your hand? Unless you have hands like Paul Bunyan, it would take several palms to create a sturdy enough human base for your HDTV. But if you were to pick up Acer's new K132 DLP portable projector, you'd find that its pint sized stature belies the display technology that sits tucked inside. Though it measures just 5.5 inches (L) by 4.6 inches (W) by 1.6 inches (H) and weighs less than a pound, it's capable of beaming an HD resolution with 500 ANSI lumens brightness.

"Compact and user-friendly, the Acer K132 is a convenient, compact device to showcase visuals almost anywhere," said Frank Chang, director of product management, Acer America. "With the ability to project HD content, this tiny projector provides vibrant image clarity that’s perfect for making compelling presentations in the boardroom, while the long lamp life provides a solid return on investment."

It supports 16:10, 16:9, and 4:3 aspect ratios and has an HDMI connection. Other notable features include a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, support for 3D image output, 30,000-hour rated lamp life, and Instant Pack technology, which allows you to store it right away after use without a cool down period.

The Acer K132 DLP is available now in the U.S. for $499 MSRP.
