Rollei Innocube pico projector is beautifully blocky
At first glance, it looks like another creative rendition of the Rubik’s Cube with a greater purpose, but the Rollei Innocube pico projector is one interesting design aspect given to the mini variants of these accessories. Manufactured by Rollei and SK Telecom, the Innocube looks a lot like the famous mind-twisting game but effectively projects media from your portable devices to a larger viewing surface. All sides of the cube measure 1.8 inches and the entire weight is a mere 129g. It is powered by a 2300 mAh battery and can effectively produce images of up to 60 inches, with a 4:3 aspect ratio, for 2 hours continuously. On the inside, the projector offers brightness of 35 ANSI lumens, VGA (640 x 480) resolution and an 800:1 contrast ratio. The LED life is 10,000 hours of burn time, thus promising a considerable tenure of service.
As far as compatibility goes, the Innocube works well with all leading tablets, smartphones and laptops. The IC200C version that resembles the Rubik’s cube will arrive in Europe by April, for $432 while the plainer IC200T will land in Europe by March for just under $400.
