US$200 Asus E1Z Projector is a portable Projector for Road Warriors

There are some interesting products coming out at the Computex Trade Show in Taipei, Taiwan. A lot of them won’t go on sale until Christmas 2015 and even then only in China and the rest of South and East Asia.

But one particular product from Asus will have Teachers all over Jamaica drooling is the Asus E1Z Projector (Healey, 2015), a palm-sized device that packs a massive punch that was on show.  Compact and simple, it built with ease-of-use in mind with a sizeable ON button.

However, this is not what made the product stand out. It’s the lack of a HDMI Cable that caught my eye, as this Asus E1Z Projector uses a micro-USB port and a regular USB port as inputs, allowing it to connect to any smartphone or Tablet.

Operating this projector is simple plug-and-play, as once on, you can focus using the focus wheel to get fairly crisp images. But it’s the gigantic 6000 mAh battery included that’s the talk of Computex, making this a Projector you can take ANYWHERE with you.

Road warriors especially will love this, as you can do a presentation at the tip of a hat as well as create a Movie Theatre experience in seconds, with a few portable Samsung Level (Deer, 2014, December 9) Bluetooth speaker for Stereo sound. 

Asus E1Z Projector – Portable competition that has its own Battery 

No specs are currently available on the Asus E1Z Projector or when it’ll become available. But with that level of portability in a product, I envision it’ll be capable of playing HD Video from any device with a USB cable with streaming from any source via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

Already, this device is competition with less-portable counterparts such as the US$49 Roku Streaming Stick (Deer, 2014, March 5) the US$35 Google Chromecast (Deer, 2014, July 26) or the US$39 Amazon Fire TV Streaming Stick (Deer, 2014, December 24), as all these products are dependent on external power and streaming via a Wi-Fi Connection.

Expect the Asus E1Z Projector to sell forUS$200 by September 2015.
