The Wemax Go is touted as the thinnest ALPD projector on Indiegogo
The Wemax Go is a new "smart laser" projector rated to throw an image of up to 120 inches in diagonal length with auto-keystone correction, and a "Smart OS" for content management. It is powered by a Texas Instruments DLP chipset, and has an in-built battery for cable-free operation.
The Rec. 709-covering projector also purports to improve on other "on-the-go" devices in its category with a height of just 1 inch and a weight of 1.72 pounds (lb, or 0.78 kilograms (kg)).
Wemax also asserts that it has packed ALPD technology (although of which generation remains undisclosed) for more cinema-like projection using the potentially pocket-sized device. The start-up also claims that it can get up to "200%" brighter than anything else of its size, even without blackout curtains.
The Wemax Go is also slated to have USB type-C support, which is present to allow the projector to run off a power bank. Then again, these specs are based on a prototype pending manufacture, to be funded via the device's Indiegogo page.
This campaign has amassed just over US$170,000 with 10 days left to go at the time of writing, even though Wemax' original goal was just $500. The company now estimates that the Go will ship from February 2022. It currently starts at $349, although this is for a 540p-capable base model, with a 1080p Advanced model offered as a reward in exchange for $599 at present.
