25 Examples of TV-Thwarting Devices

From Pop-Up Modern Projectors to Apple TV Concepts

— May 20, 2015 — Tech
The age of television is slowly coming to an end thanks to the advent of mobile technology as well as these TV-thwarting devices. Addressing the need to still view images comfortably, designers have come up with creative solutions that speak to the modern individual and their increasing tech-savvy needs.

Some of these TV-thwarting devices touch on the benefits of projectors while others rely more heavily on computer monitors. A new wave of VR headsets opens the doors for even more immersive experiences, which can be enjoyed for television shows, gaming and more.

Focusing on flexibility as much as quality, these TV-thwarting devices ensure that such media keeps up with the evolution of technology in general, something that consumers will greatly appreciate.
