Gone are the days when a projector needed to sit across the room from the wall. Now they can get closer than ever. In fact, someone can work from just inches away. Of course, there is enough space on the market for projectors such as the BenQ TK800 that require more space, but it's nice to see that the field is evolving.

For connections, the CineBeam HU85L USB, HDMI and Ethernet ports. It also includes LG's ThinQ AI for voice commands, which should make navigation around the projector much more comfortable. It has the same features as a smart TV, so it will run all of the streaming applications and other services that users expect from an advanced device.
