The Keecker robot can project on any surface in your house and runs on the Android operating system.This means it has Google Play access,which also means it can stream videos from Netflix or Youtube.The Keecker has a built-in speaker so you can also use it to listen music as well. All this can be done from your smartphone (that is controlling the robot).
At 16 inches wide and 25 inches tall,its pretty big and has motorized wheels to help it move about.It projects,videos,images,and even Skype calls,at a 1,280×800 resolution which isn’t much in this day and age but the 1000 – Lumen brightness makes it bright enough to watch even with the lights on.Pricing starts at $4,000 to $5,000.
