Robot video projector launched for home theatre market

Former Google manager, Pierre Lebeau, has designed a new mobile robotic video projector powered by Android technology.

Capable of syncing with smartphones and other devices, Keecker projects the on-screen image onto any wall or ceiling without the need for a power cord.

Keecker runs on a battery that lasts for up to one week and comes complete with internal speakers, providing 360 degree sound. The mobile projection device can project images at 1,280 x 800 resolution and 1000 lumens brightness.

The robot also allows users to access content for projection from anywhere, including online, and can be synced with a smartphone app to enable the projector to follow the user.

Keecker is capable of running alone and can map out its surroundings after activation. Labels can then be applied to different areas to enable completely autonomous use. The projector is also equipped with a number of sensors including humidity and temperature.

Currently in development, Keecker will be funded via funding website Kickstarter once the products campaign has been launched. The robot is then expected to be ready for shipping at the end of 2014, with an average price of $4,000 to $5,000.
