Hachi's Infinite M1 is an AI-powered projector that can throw a working interface onto the desk or wall in front of it. Its maker originally launched it at CES 2020, and is now prepared to ship it from Amazon or its own website. It works thanks to a Snapdragon SoC and a version of Android 9.0.

Hachi introduced its Infinite M1 at CES 2020 as the successor to its Puppy Cube desk-top projector. It is rated to throw an interactive, 23-100-inch HD image that is also touch-responsive ahead of it. Its maker claims to have the edge on other products in the same market due to its AI functionality and its "proprietary multitouch technology" called AnyTouch, which, as Hachi claims, means it is "on par with capacitive displays".

The company, a subsidiary of Beijing Puppy Robotics, is aiming this device at the educational market, asserting that it can keep developing minds occupied with its shape- and letter-matching games. The Hachi AI Fitness app, on the other hand, may help the projector act like a smart home-gym with the ability to identify and analyze workouts, form and generate instructions.

Then again, this new function will not be present on the Infinite M1 until the relevant update, which is predicted to be pushed in the last quarter of 2020 (4Q2020). Otherwise, Hachi believes that the Infinite M1 could also help with other aspects of living and working thanks to its Infinite OS, a skin for Android 9.0.

That is just as well, as it can be moved from place to place around the house thanks to its 5000mAh battery. It powers a 600 lumen bulb, dual 5 watt (W) speakers and 4 to 6GB of RAM. The Hachi Infinite M1 has now been released on or for US$999.
