Looked up this KS, and it gives a pre-order option (sold out appearantly) for 139$! while the super early bird was 349$... 139$ starts to come near the 99$ you mentioned in you video for a camping thing ;-) www.arovia.com/products/spud-spontaneous-pop-up-display

So. It's a projector stuck inside a photography folding softbox.which is a kinda, neat idea but not that special. ... If they sell just the projector but with Bowens mount and perhaps if that helps a finer fabric than the softbox got, and make it adjust to size, I'm in. Though maybe sticking a projector in a Bowens adapter for speedlights also works... Oh wait. Works only for some boxes. But with the godox folding line, Diffusor taken out, sure. 80cm.

I can see this type of product working well for parents with kids on camping trips or even in bedrooms. I think it's good for their first product. Get the cost down and offer better resolutions and brightness and I think this could fit niche market

As a rng owner I have to say their product sucks, its slow as tar at notifying your phone, and their upcharge business model that does not allow the owner to use local NAS storage for the video files the camera records and already uploads to a cloud based server, even if you don't subscribe to their monthy upsell cloud storage product, all of this anti-consumer behavior makes it one of the worst and frankly surprising products to see LTT schilling for..

this is the dumbest invention ive ever seen besides that fake projector wrist phone thing. shitty resolution, shitty quality, shitty color, shitty luminance, its just something to make kids and the mentally challenged go "WOW THATS SO I COOL I WANT IT"

puchu 19 days ago
Are we walking backwards now !!! So they basically stuck a screen in front of a cheap projector and called it SPUD- "Selling Poop Up Dollar" And that took 2.5 years and 700k, they spent the money on crack and bought something from AliExpress and sold them as SPUD for even more profit.

Yea those proof of concept vids on their kickstarter page are super misleading. The fact that they're projecting colors darker than the target surface is a clear indicator of post composition. PS: thanks for that knowledge Captain Disillusion, i would love to have see a collab review by them of something like this!
