This Week’s Must-Haves: a Mini Projector That Creates Supersized Images

This week, the Adweek staff is highlighting an LED Home Theater Projector, a uKeg pressurized growler to make sure your beers stay fresh, a training football and more. Take a look!


LG Ultra Short Throw LED Home Theater Projector $1,400

Until recently, anyone looking to ditch their big-screen TV for a high-tech projector required plenty of space—not to mention a complicated ceiling mount—for proper installation. But that's not the case anymore thanks to a new generation of projectors like LG's recently released "Ultra Short Throw" model. When placed just 15 inches away from a wall or screen, the pint-size device delivers an impressive 100 inches of HD 1080p quality picture. With built-in Wi-Fi and LG's Smart TV software, it can stream directly from services like Netflix and Amazon, while its HDMI hookup lets you connect to your gaming console or laptop. And did we mention it makes a great viewing companion for the Super Bowl?

As a result, the chair's manufacturer, Herman Miller, has now introduced a larger version to ensure that even the tallest (by 1958 standards) individuals can relax in style.

No one to play ball with? That's not a problem with Passback's training football, which turns throwing practice into a solo activity. Thanks to its flattened end, the ball gets bounced right back to you when thrown against a wall.
