Looking to transform your home into a fun holiday hub for family and friends? Technology to the rescue. How about an indoor drive-in movie? Or a virtual reality viewing party? Ready to bring the music (and a light show) anywhere? Let us help you get the holiday party started.

Create an Indoor Drive-In

Entertaining a house full of people? Sounds like the perfect time to take in a movie, and you can make it extra memorable by bringing the drive-in inside your home. To build your big-screen experience, start with the Epson Home Cinema 4000 projector. Its 4K Enhancement technology delivers a bright, colorful picture that goes beyond Full HD. Next, plug in the Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote so you can stream the latest movies, TV shows and those holiday classics. Plus, you can control it all just by talking into the remote. It's a cool way to impress your guests. 

Share a VR Experience

Let's face it. Sometimes holiday gatherings need an ice breaker, so why not let the wonder of virtual reality help out? All it takes is the Samsung Gear VR and a compatible phone like the Samsung Galaxy S8. There's plenty of immersive, VR content to transport friends and family to new places (both real and imaginary), so they can play games, watch movies, you name it. Or better yet, you can record your own 360-degree video with the Gear 360 camera and share it with your guests. They'll be amazed — trust us.

Stream Music (and Set the Mood) Anywhere

Here's how to strike the right tone at your holiday party in two easy steps. Step one: Ring in the holidays with Sony's portable XB30 speaker. It has built-in lights that dance to the music, and it's rechargeable (so no cords needed). Plus, you can connect up to ten compatible Sony wireless speakers for even bigger sound. Step two: Use the Sony Music Center app on a compatible device like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 to control the speaker's lights. From "chill" to "strobe" all the way to "rave," you can pick the right setting to match the mood. Now your party will look and sound its best, anywhere you throw it.
