Today we present you with a riddle…
Q- How does a 70″ tablet weigh only 1.47 pounds?
A- When it is the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro, With a Built-In 70″ Projector
Do you still think of tablets as a flat piece of technology that allows us to watch cat videos without squinting at our phones? Open your mind grasshopper, things are about to get funky. What if I told you a tablet is something that stands up, turns your living room wall into an impromptu movie theater and is controlled by a banana.

Even Once The Wow Factor Dies Down, The Increased Functionality Lives On
When you first press the projector button on the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro, there is a huge Wow moment. You just turned your wall into a movie theater, in about 3 seconds flat. I have a projector, it takes about 30 seconds to power-on, has a huge fan and takes constant adjusting to get everything to look right. So, no doubt about it, a real technical marvel to fit a 50 Lumens, instant on projector into a 1.47 pound tablet.
All too often we review products that have some huge Wow factor, show impressive technical skill…but serve no real functional purpose. Thankfully, the projector is not technology, just for the sake of technology. It is hugely functional to be able to take what you see on the screen and project it on the wall or ceiling. Instead of one or two people staring at a 10″ screen, it becomes a group activity. The projector totally changes what you can do with a tablet.
The other day my son was going to bed and he was talking about some confusion on rates and ratios from his math class. I used the Yoga Tab 3 Pro to project a Khan Academy course onto the ceiling and we watched and discussed while lying in bed. In a weird way it felt like technology just disappeared. We weren’t sitting up in bed, holding a tablet, staring into an electronic screen. We were lying in bed, naturally looking up at the ceiling, learning and sharing the experience. It simply worked and felt right.
Yes, Yes There Are Reasons to Use a Banana As A Stylus
At first glance, it does seem like the AnyPen technology is a bit of a parlor trick. The ability to use pens, pencils, forks and fruit to control your tablet… is that really necessary? Yes, yes it is. Pens have an obvious use case. You are taking notes on paper and then you want to write something on your tablet. Makes total sense to use the same writing device.
What about the bananas you ask? Sure, not as many use cases, but we did fine a big one. We use the Yoga Tab 3 Pro in the kitchen. Put it in stand mode and it is great for showing recipes. What happens when your hands are all sticky and you need to scroll down? This is where the banana, or strawberry, of back of the knife all come in. It definitely can be helpful to control your tablet with whatever is right around you in the kitchen.
