Puppy Robotics launched an interactive all-in-one projector on Indiegogo a couple of weeks ago called the puppy cube, which can throw a tablet-like home page full of huge icons onto any flat surface or can be flipped on its back to perform duties as a short throw movie entertainment system. We've had one on our review bench for a few days, here's what we think of it.
The Indiegogo campaign has already met its modest US$20,000 target as of writing, with about 2 weeks remaining on the clock. The puppy cube we were sent for review very much had the look and feel of a production ready model, and came in a posh box with lots of padding to protect the unit during transit.
At 1.6 kg (3.5 lb), the projector is no lightweight, especially for a device that rocks its own battery for cable-free placement around the home or office. But it does lend the unit a solid feel. Inside, the puppy cube has quad-core processing brains supported by 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of onboard storage, and a TI DLP laser module that promises up to 720p definition visuals.
