Anyone looking for an innovative way to be able to view media or player applications may be interested in a new smart projector called Beam.
Beam consists of projector hardware that is capable of being screwed into any light socket, offering the ability to project a display either straight down on to a table or onto any flat surface such as a wall or ceiling. Watch the video below to learn more about this different approach to smart projector technology.
The Beam project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $200,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Its creators Beam Labs explain :
“Beam can turn any flat surface into a big screen. It is a powerful projector equipped with a smart computer, all inside a beautifully designed casing. With Beam you can watch TV on your bedroom ceiling, play games using your phone or a Bluetooth controller, project recipes on your kitchen counter, stream content from your network drive, listen to music through its speakers, play projected board-games on your dining table, show a presentation or even use it in a restaurant to show the menu and turn the walls into digital paintings.
You can play games, watch movies or share content from your smartphone or tablet. Beam will assist you in your daily activities, like wake you up in the morning with the latest news and your agenda or show you your social updates when you come home.
Beam is easy to set up and control with the Apple or Android app. You can screw it into any light socket or use the included power cable to place it on any flat surface.
With Beam we created an easy to use internet of things device that can entertain and assist you throughout the day, perfectly integrated in your home. The technology inside Beam is so unique that we decided to patent it. Patent Pending!”
