After successfully launching their Android smart projector back in 2014 the team at Dos Owls have once again taken to Kickstarter, to raise the required funds to take their second-generation smart projector the ODIN2 into production.
The latest Android smart projector from the team has now been refined and can be used for a wide variety of different applications from viewing movies, making video calls and even accessing files stored in your Dropbox or Skydrive accounts.
The development team at Dos Owls explain more about ODIN2.
ODIN2 combines the big picture experience of a projector with the smart and convenient functions of an Android tablet. It’s the ideal product for people who consume most of their entertainment using Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, the web and mobile applications.
ODIN2 is a two generation upgrade from ODIN1 in terms of hardware, software and user experience. We reviewed all the feedback we received from ODIN1 users in real life scenarios, and incorporated their suggestions into creating a completely redesigned and reengineered ODIN2 from the ground up.
