Looking for something cool to back on IndieGoGo? A new product called the nGees is being pitched as a next generation entertainment system, and its creators will rely on a combination of beautiful hardware and software to stand out from the rest. The device is smaller than an Apple and will connect to any television that accepts an HDMI port.
You might be asking yourself how it’s different from the likes of the MK802 Android stick. Well, this little guy comes with a nice motion-enabled remote, has some pretty nice specs, and is supposed to come to market with a lot of custom apps to create a better entertainment experience for TV. The MK802 isn’t the hottest thing on the market so there’s still a lot of room for good competition.
The specs on the nGees include an ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core processor, a quad-core GPU, 1GB of RAM, 8-32GB of storage, WiFi N, mini HDMI, a mini USB port with a full-sized USB 2.0 port, Bluetooth and more. It looks like a lot of time, effort and thought has been put into the design of this thing so there’s no wonder it’s such an attractive device.
That said, if you want to see something like this on top of your entertainment center anytime soon, you’ll want to pledge some funds to make the project a reality. The project’s goal on IndieGoGo is $395,000, and there are 52 days left to reach that as of the time of this writing. Only $431 have been pledged so far so there’s a long way to go.
The cheapest pledge option to walk away with one is $100 for the 8GB version, but there are a lot more to choose from (including the ability to get a custom-designed nGees system). These things should be out in May if everything goes well, so get over to IndieGoGo and help them out if it’s something you wouldn’t mind seeing on the market in the next few months.
