Asus today announced its new ZenBeam Latte at CES 2021, and it’s kind of cute. This is a mobile movie projector that looks like a monocular, fabric-covered micro-robot. The important thing is that it can use up to 300 lumens of LED lights to emit 720p images, which is brighter than the capsule projector we see from Anker’s similar products, and it has an integrated 10W Haman card Tune the speaker system.
Curiously, Asus insists that its projector looks like a coffee cup.
It is not. This is not the correct shape (just watch the video!), why is the “homemade” coffee cup (in the case of ASUS) gray instead of a lustrous brown? Asus also claimed that it was “the first projector to provide a fabric appearance”, which is obviously wrong.
Of course, you can’t drink ASUS Latte, because it can only distribute voices and sounds. However, it can wirelessly project mobile phones or HDMI devices.
Therefore, gadget manufacturers should consider this as an opportunity: to make coffee cups that ASUS does not have. Just make sure it lasts longer than movies-Asus offers a 3 hour offer with a 6,000 mAh battery-and bright enough to create a decent screen. Asus said that when it is one meter away from the wall, two meters 80 inches, and a maximum of 120 inches (about three meters), it can produce a 40-inch image. However, don’t expect a 300-lumen projector to be very bright at 9 feet away.
Asustek said it will enter the US market in the second quarter of this year, but there is no pricing information yet.
