Money no object: Sony's 4K short-throw projectors

Combine a side table with a cinema projection system and you get furniture from the future

Camouflage cues

Unlike a regular design-damaging projector, the Sony 4K USTP sits just a few inches away from a given wall, blending into its environment/

Hidden strengths

When not used, the projection bit is hidden, giving the illusion of a functional side table, though guests shouldn't rest their Martinis on it.

Modular mods

Optional speakers either side discreetly extend without altering the look, so your front roomwon't look like an AV convention.

The bigger picture

Despite its short projector-to-wall distance, the USTP can throw a147-inch image, and a picture quality of 4K essentially turns your lounge into the local digital cinema.

Art full

Though the USTP's main use is for watching movies, Sony has positioned it as a gadget for art lovers, too: a masterpiece projected onto the wall will bring your room to life

Big pimpin'

You'll need a serious appreciation for home design, as the Sony 4KUSTP will set you back $50,000 (£32,000). Cash-rich enquirerscan head over to www.sony.net.
