Android robot projector follows you around the house

Android robot projector follows you around the house
Displayed at CES, Keecker is a weird looking robot that is powered by Android. The device is actually a projector robot lead designed by Pierre Lebeau, who used to work as a project manager at Google. Keecker travels around the house, projecting images on the wall. And since it does come stuffed with Android, you could project videos from Netflix or You Tube or other streaming video sites.

With 6 speakers surrounding Keecker, the device offers 360 degree sound that can stream music as well as video. And Android powered smartphones and tablets can control Keecker. The images projected have a resolution of 1280 x 800 and offer 1000 lumen brightness, which means you can view the projections during the day as well as at night. Images can even be projected on the ceiling. Keecker even knows when someone new comes over and can take pictures of them.

Keecker's memory maps the lay out of your house and remembers it. You will be able to call it to you by saying commands like "Keecker, come to the living room." You might be able to do that as soon as this year's fourth quarter, when Keecker could be launched after it is crowdfunded on Kickstarter. The device is expected to cost $4000 to $5000 a pop.

I'll stick with my regular projector. Cool idea but I'm not sure I need a projectore anywhere but the living room. Maybe the bathroom would be neat, but not if this guy is snapping pics!

News paper > magazine > hand held games > telephone > cell phone > smart phone > tablets > Keeker. Just one more evolutionary step to keep us on the toilet longer.
