Moving projector could offer wireless big screen entertainment

Keeker, a new moving projector complete with surround sound, could soon be providing homeowners and corporate users with wireless big screen entertainment.

The ‘robot’ – which also comprises sensors including mic and camera, meaning it can turn its hand to security functions – can travel around the house or outside on its self-driving robo-wheels.

Furthermore, remote-controlled Keeker is capable of projecting a 1080p, 40-inch screen from two feet away. It also offers 360-degree sound with six 25W speakers, and boasts sensors for infared, ultrasound, light, air quality, temperature, and humidity.

It also comes complete with one terabyte of storage to allow for the storage of movies and photos locally and is capable of running Android apps thanks to its Android 4.2 operating system.

Keeker, which has been developed thanks to Kickstarter funding, comes with a price tag of around $1,990 (£1,270).

Keecker CEO and founder, Pierre Lebeau, confirmed that the device is able to create large images even when it is positioned very close to a wall, so small rooms don't limit its functionality.

Mr Lebeau also said that Keecker could be used to project images such as stars onto a ceiling, or art onto a wall in place of hanging portraits.
