There are a ton of different projectors on the market. Most are fairly bland, with just your general projection functionality. However, we just came across a real game-changer. The ODIN projector, from Dos Owls. The ODIN is much, much more than a projector:

ODIN 1According to the creators, the ODIN is, the first “Android ‘Smart’ projector that directly projects online content from a compact, battery-operated device allowing sharing and viewing in unlimited ways.”1 The ODIN is much more than a benign projector. It is, more-or-less, a computer with a projected display: “a multi-functional, portable visual display that solves a slew of A/V problems and opens the door to a limitless universe of content sharing possibilities. It’s battery-powered, wireless (WiFi and Bluetooth), compact and connects effortlessly with the Internet.”2


The ODIN is truly a one of a kind device. It has a powerful quad-core microprocessor that runs Android KitKat, giving you full access to the more than a million Android apps. It has built in WiFi, Bluetooth, HDMI, and two USB connections. It has two 4-watt Bluetooth speakers built right in. In short, the ODIN is a content consumption powerhouse:

ODIN is the ideal product for people who consume most of their entertainment using Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, the web and mobile applications. As we consume more information via the Internet, we need a compact, portable device that gives us a large visual display.
