Just like any year, this year's CES has focused quite a bit on television sets. And just like any (recent) year, this year brings us a whole slew of new Android TV products. To make it easier to sift through them, we've compiled this article combining all the announcements from the show, sorted alphabetically by manufacturer. Read More
There are not many projectors with Android TV built-in — we reviewed the Anker Nebula Capsule II and XGIMI Mogo and walked away impressed by them, but didn't like that neither of them has any official support for Netflix. Though you can always sideload the Netflix mobile app, it can be difficult to control and quite janky.

Since the announcement of KitKat's new printer support, you might have also been looking forward to being able to send a document straight from your Android device to your Epson printer. Good news: that dream is now a reality. The manufacturer just announced that it has released a plugin to enable native printing support on Android KitKat.

Epson announced today that the Moverio BT-100, the first Android-powered see-through wearable display, is now available from the Epson store.

The interesting thing is that the virtual display is ever so slightly translucent, meaning it won't totally block your vision.
The glasses also support side-by-side 3D imaging, have Wi-Fi connectivity, and a microSD slot preloaded with a 4GB card, expandable all the way to 32GB. Read More
