Hitachi's ED-X10 educational projector


Being the naive souls that we are, we didn't know the main sought-after functionality for a gadget to be used in an educational institution is theft deterrence, but Hitachi seems to be onto the game. By painting their new ED-X10 projector a bright orange, they hope they can dissuade a couple of Halo-hungry frat brothers from "repurposing" the unit. (Is that why prisoners wear orange? So we don't steal them?) Hitachi has also packed in a transition detector that will lock the projector if moved, requiring a pin-code to use it again. If all else fails, the projector includes a steel security bar so you can just bolt the unit down and be done with it. Otherwise this orange thing sounds fairly average, with an XGA resolution, 2000 ANSI lumens, and a 500:1 contrast ratio. The ED-X10 is available now in the UK for around $1200 US.
