Thanks for the info, found some pre-load card options.

..but there are concerns that only the first 100 can get the kickstarter release price although some are saying that that's not what n-tech said when they ask to pledge the 1$ no matter how many did.
oh well let see how it goes

Yuen Long is an area in HK, N-Tech office is located in Yuen Long.

the thing is that Cantonese doesnt have an exact ping-yin equivalent unlike mandarin, so they spell it however it sound but that should have been Yuen Long.

This is just a buyer-beware warning. I found this searching the internet. It's about a scam to produce a 4K projector in the past. I'm not saying this new one is the same one, but looks very suspicious to me: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/s...y/x/16301143#/

$359 is for people who donated the $1 before the launch on indiegogo.

If you donate $1, you get a special URL link in in your e-mail that will direct you to indiegogo and you can pledge $359. Only you can see that $359 special price when you click on that special link. If you go to indiegogo and just go to that 4K projector page, that special perk price of $359 cannot be seen.

If you have $360 to spare ($359 + $1 donation), then have fun with the risk of this project. $360 is like 360 degrees......like this projector brag that it can do :-)

Here are my red flags: (just my opinion of course)

1. How can a projector this small produce 7-8 hours of battery life? Look at the photo of the battery size. It is tiny when compared to the speaker compartment. The battery has to power the speaker, the laser light, processor, etc.....

2. How can it be so cheap for a 4K projector?

3. How can it be so small for a 4K projector? Look at at the Xiaomi laser projector that is only 1080p and it is huge. Laser is not the same as LED, but still.....


Sounds too good to be true.

On Indiegogo, they quoted: 4 pcs Speaker : 12w Stereo Speaker with strong bass 90HZ Speaker Power: 3W x 4 Brightness: 1500 ANSI lumens Battery Life: 7 - 8 hours.

A 3watt LED can produce 80-100 lumens. 4 bulbs would produce a max of 400 lumens. That is no where near 1,500 lumens. While that might be enough to drive a 50" image in total darkness. It's no where near enough to drive 1,500 lumens. Guys, you need to ask intelligent questions of these people. With the speaker they are talking, I think, 24 watts of power max for their battery, which would probably put in in a 2 hour range or less, max. That doesn't concern me as much as the brightness. Something doesn't make scientific sense here.

There's no 4 bulb led assembly, I think you should read it as "there are 4 pcs of 3 watt speakers = 12 watts sound."
