Evaluation

First of all, we are surprised that a battery and projector with a built-in speaker are in this little aluminum box. There is no need to warm-up or cool-down and it can project a 41-inch image with a short focal length of no more than 1 meter. Since the battery and speaker are built-in, it can project an image anywhere. It is valued mostly for its sense, achieved through balancing performance and portability, which at a high level are what people desire, by specifically understanding their needs. Compatible with smartphones and tablets, where it can also be used as a mobile battery, it will inspire the role of a compact projector in the future.
