Projectors have been around for years as a way to enjoy entertainment on a large screen or project information in school or for presentations, however, we haven’t really thought much about bringing projectors into our homes. In the last few years, we’ve been seeing invention design take a turn when it comes to making projectors more home friendly. 


How Lumo’s Invention Design Projector is Making TV’s Old News


The pros of projectors


What’s great about a projector in your home is that it allows you to have a large screen to watch content on without the hefty price tag that comes with a television. Projectors also require less space. Yes, you need the room to project onto a wall but when you aren’t using the device you can use that space for other things. Lastly, a projector is portable. That means you can easily move it from room to room without the annoyance of moving a television set.


Lumo Projector: Innovative Invention Design

The Lumo projector


One of the latest in invention design that is innovating the projector/television space is the Lumo projector which is perfect for those with limited space with its sleek design that is similar to a floor lamp. The projector is aimed at those in small households which rely a lot on their computer or phone to watch television usually.

Lumo is capable of 360-degree projection making it easy to project images just about anywhere and the position can easily be moved with voice command. You can also set it up to have daily information and personalized content always on the wall or ceiling like the weather or your calendar. Not only is this invention design changing the way we look at television but it’s also making our homes more and smarter. All of this can be controlled and access by your phone or device.

Projectors like Lumo’s are innovating typical household products and replacing them with invention design that is more practical and smart to fit all types of lifestyles.
