Epson Unveils EpiqVision Ultra LS800 Smart Streaming Laser Projector

Epson revealed they have a brand new item for the holidays as they unveiled the Epson EpiqVision Ultra LS800 Ultra Short Throw Laser Projector. This is a nice little piece of tech designed to completely replace whatever 4K TV you want to have or do have in your home, providing crystal-clear pictures on your wall from this base, projecting upward. Not the first of its kind, but definitely more advanced in the display options. Especially since it can project up to 150" so you're getting a massive picture without the major hardware. However, the price of it is about what you might expect from something as advanced as it's going for about $3,500. We have all the details from the company about this below as it's out on their website and through select retailers.
