The only thing worse than travelling with someone who insists on carrying a full-scale projector around the world is having to carry the projector yourself. The Blog has had its patience tested while waiting for the ICIS training projector to cool down, or waiting for the projector to pass through security.
On one trip (Frankfurt, I think), the projector's guardian, Peter T was taken away by a security guard to have the projector sponged down for explosives.
So LG's new HX300G, the "world's most powerful projector", a tiny 16 cm wide and 6 cm deep, struck the Blog as a welcome addition to the travelling baggage of ICIS training.
You can simply connect a USB stick and play a presentation straight from it, wherever you may be in the darkest corners of the world. According to the techie review in the free shortlist.com magazine I picked up on the train, it has a 30,000-hour lifespan, meaning that you can leave it on for 10 hours a day, five days a week, and it would still last more than 10 years. The perfect present for someone who doesn't trust hotel projectors, or at least doesn't want to pay the hundreds of euros which hotels charge for projector hire.
