Video Projector Robot May Be The Future Home Theater [CES 2014]
Keecker syncs with smartphones and turns any wall into a screen.
Designed by former Google product manager Pierre Lebeau, Keecker is a mobile Android-powered robot that can sync with a smartphone and projects what is on-screen onto any wall or even the ceiling.
Keecker is mobile and can easily move around the house. It doesn’t require a power cord and runs on a battery that can last for a week. It comes with a projector and speakers that can blast sound in 360 degrees.
The robot, dubbed as a robotic entertainment butler, lets users access content from anywhere — email inboxes, Facebook profiles or HBO GO. The robot is also designed to follow the user around via a smartphone app.
According to an article on Gigaom, the first Keecker will have the ability to be autonomous and will be able to map out the user’s house after its activation. Once it has a map of the house, the user can apply labels to the parts of the house and will be able to instruct Keecker to go wherever.
The Kickstarter campaign for Keecker is yet to be launched and the robot will ship by the end of the year. The estimated retail price for the video projector robot is between $4,000 to $5,000.
