We've never owned a projector before. We've seen them used in school, but they were always kind of ugly. We also didn't enjoy the 15 minutes it took to wrangle all of the cords and get the 20ft of excess cord out of the way so no one in the class tripped on their way out to the bathroom. The times, they are a changin' and maybe we're going to have to re-evaluate our opinion of projectors.
The OO, a concept-only device designed by David Riesenberg is one of the first high definition wireless projectors we've seen. The futuristic design projector utilizes either a Wi-Fi connection or internal SSD storage, and can operate independently from any wire for up to 3 hours based on an internal Li-Ion battery or using a single wire connected to a power source.
Using the combination of Wi-Fi connectivity and internal storage the OO can act as both an extender/duplicator of an external display or as a wireless media projector/streamer with built in decoding capabilities.
The shape is really interesting. The body reminds us of a turtle, even though we're supposed to only be focusing on the circular shape. We just can't help but wish there were a head coming out of the lens. The bottom portion of the projector houses three independently articulated legs that allow the OO to be tilted for optimal positioning.
The semi monocoque carbon fiber structure allows for a lightweight construction and combined with its dimensions (11in / 28cm diameter) allow the OO to be portable but without compromising image quality. There's no pricing information available and we couldn't even find a product page &mdash just a link to the video.
