Hot of the heels of their successful Nebula Mars mobile projector, Anker’s getting set to release an even smaller portable cinema, and our readers can save a bunch by preordering, and get some free accessories too.
The Nebula Capsule is about the size of a soda can, but can turn any wall into a 100" display while outputting 360 degree audio. And you won’t be hurting for content, since you can plug in any HDMI video source, mirror your iOS or Android’s screen wirelessly, or use the built-in Android 7.0 OS to pull up your favorite streaming apps.
It’ll run for an industry-best 2.5 hours on a single charge (or 40 hours if you’re just using it as a Bluetooth speaker), but since it charges over USB, you can just bring a power bank with you for essentially unlimited playtime.
Of course, it’s not going to be as bright as a full-sized projector, or the larger Nebula Mars, but its 100 lumens are basically unmatched in the pico projector space. Similarly, its 800x480 resolution is pretty standard at this size and price point, but the picture won’t be as crisp as you’d get from a larger projector, especially at larger sizes.
But for just $269 (with our exclusive discount), it’s a perfectly capable portable theater that you can fit in your bag. That’s kind of amazing! Plus, when you order through our link, you’ll get a free mini tripod to help aim the picture, and a free carrying case too.
