Anker has made a name for itself as a trustworthy third-party device manufacturer, so it’s no small surprise to see the company is branching out with its experiments. They’ve already experimented with an Android-based projector, but the latest Nebula Capsule is about the same size as a can of soda and costs about half of what the gigantic Nebula Mars does. (Makes sense, the Mars is intended for home use.)
The Indiegogo pitch is asking for $50,000 to make this tiny Bluetooth speaker and projector a reality and it’s already hit its funding goal with more than a month left.
The device is a mere 4.7 by 2.7 inches and can double as a battery-powered 360-degree Bluetooth speaker. The Capsule Nebula runs Android 7.0 Nougat, so you’ll be able to put streaming apps like Netflix, YouTube, Hulu and more on it in order to take advantage of the projector. However, you’ll need a dark room as the unit is only capable of 100 lumens of brightness for the projection, which maxes out at 854 X 480 resolution.
Anker claims you’ll be able to use the Nebula Capsule’s projection feature for around 2.5 hours before you’ll need to recharge, while you can get around 40 hours of Bluetooth audio from the five speakers inside the device. Anker also says the Capsule will charge fully in less than 90 minutes.
What do you think of this Android projector? If you want to take part in the Indiegogo, you can pledge $249 to receive a Nebula Capsule and Anker Battery Pack when they’re released.
