Epson has released a video of an “extreme” gamer wearing a PS3 Slim, EH-TW450 projector, wrist-guards, knee-pads and a portable battery pack.
The projector – which has a 3000:1 contrast ratio – is used to display Need for Speed on a living room wall, city buildings, clubs, and yes, even a wind tunnel.
The short video received a relatively positive review from Mark Wilson of Gizmodo, who expressed his enthusiasm about the possible future applications of pico projectors.
“Eventually, as pico projectors become more popular and powerful, it’ll be interesting to see how many of us torture the landscape with Tekken 6 matches, and just how authorities choose to respond,” mused Wilson.
However, Tim Stevens of Endgadget adopted a more critical tone in his review of Epson’s landmark YouTube video.
“[The projector has] a single one watt speaker that probably couldn’t overcome the din of all the road traffic this extremophile was dodging. If you want in on this kind of action expect to pay about $1,000 – for the projector. You’re on your own for the rest of the kit. Loss of self-respect? That comes for free.”
