Let's see: you want to use your iPad as a remote, but don't want to attach a dorky dongle every time you want to change the channel? Perhaps the Logitech Harmony Link ($100) is the answer. This sleek system consists of a small black transmitter that connects to your home network via Wi-Fi, letting you control your entire system from your iOS or Android device without the need for any dongles or other nonsense.
One of the big problems with portable projectors is content — while the projector itself might be easy to carry around, your satellite service? Not so much. The Epson Megaplex Projector ($800) solves this problem by building an iPad, iPhone, and iPod dock directly into its dual 10-watt speaker laden back, while a 3LCD projection system blasts out a 720p image at up to 2800 lumens. Of course, it also offers HDMI and component/composite video inputs for those times when you need something more than the movies/presentations/games that your pocketable buddy can offer. We're using our review unit every night at the campsite this summer.
And here you thought your 60-inch LED TV was cool. These new LG Cinema 3D Smart TVs ($TBA) up the home entertainment ante with a 55-inch OLED model and a monstrous 84-inch UD model that sports a crazy 3840x2160 panel, ensuring it'll be useful for years to come. Other features include bezels as little as 1mm (!), access to over 1,200 apps, newly redesigned 3D glasses, and supermodel-thin bodies.
