Every week they simply delay the product launch by a week. These people have NOTHING otherwise they would be able to commit to divulging enough product details to keep potential customers interested.

By February their site will just say "keep checking back" or something similar and by May they won't even have a site.

Bloody shame because it can be done, but it does require an actual budget not just a marketing budget. Amazing the twats who still think they can kick start production with a package of marketing hype and precious little else.

If they need to make customers, then better release it on time.

My thoughts exactly, "where would i put this thing".

It looks like an interesting niche product for those who can deal with placement, but for everyone else....hmmm.

Don't wanna sound harsh, but even the conception of this product is flawed.

No wonder it will never actually be produced.

Anyone know if they are shipping yet? Curious for someone to get their hands on it and post real life experience using it. Saw there was an article on hometoys about them and sounds like still only pre-orders.

I have a feeling I know what this is:

A lumenlab-style projector using a high resolution panel with a htpc built-in.
The website diyprojectorkits reads that its author is building the model one for brytewerks- he used to be on diyaudio and lumenlab with his diy projector designs, add to that the description that the projector uses cheap bulbs (a telling giveaway that its is a LL-type design). Finally, the size of the box at 17" all around is another giveaway. HTPC can be rather small, and way smaller than 17" cube.

If anything else, its at least how well you can make a lumenlab projector today if you used factory mfg techniques instead of your garage.

Placement seems to be the big issue for me.

It has TONs of light output which is good, but no lens zoom... and 1-1, so it has to be 100" away from a 100" screen? Don't know if that's goign to work so well. I bet they don't have lens shift... Or maybe you just wiggle the magnetically mounted lens around.

The 1:1 ratio is as you described it: for a 100" width, the pj must be a 100" away. As to the light output, I think that's what the bulb is rated at, and from what I've read on lumenlab (if they're still around), the light transmission through the lcd panel is only around 5%, so what actually makes it to the screen is around 300 lumens (at most) for the standard bulb and 550 lumens for the upgraded bulb..

Again, this is on the assumption that once you crack open the case, what you see is the lumenlab fresnel-panel-fresnel design.
