Have you ever attempted to show a group of friends an awesome video on your iPhone, and then had to pass your device around so that everyone can watch it back with a decent view? With the Epson MegaPlex MG-850HD, you can project your latest home recording onto any white background so that all of your friends — heck, even your whole street! — can get a good view first time around.

What makes the MegaPlex great for iOS users is its built-in dock that features a 30-pin connector compatible with your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. That means all you have to do is stick your device inside and hit play. But it’s not just for iOS devices; it’ll also play nicely with your computer, games console, Blu-ray player, and many other smartphones and tablets.

The MegaPlex isn’t just an awesome way to show off your videos and movies at 100-inches in 720p, but it’s also great for gaming with friends, and sharing slideshows and presentations. Epson promises the device will provide you with a “remarkable” 720p resolution, with “2,800 lumens of color and white light output.”

The device also offers built-in stereo speakers, which you can use just for music when you don’t want to project, and it’ll charge your iOS device when you’re using it.

It is a little pricey, however. This particular model will cost you $699 and it’s available to buy now from the Epson Store. There is a cheaper model called the MegaPlex MG-50, which costs $599.99, but this one only offers 540p video and 2,200 lumens of color.

If you’ve got $700 to blow on something awesome, the Epson MegaPlex MG-850HD could be the perfect companion for your iOS device, and a surefire way to impress your friends and family.
