Puppy Cube is a portable ultra-short throw projector and standalone entertainment system that turns any flat surface into an interactive touchscreen. Designed to make life smarter, easier and more convenient as part of an AI-enhanced smart home ecosystem, Puppy Cube features built-in Android OS, a custom UI and an HD display of up to 100 inches. Users can enjoy apps, games and entertainment content with touchscreen functionality, along with Android and iOS device pairing compatibility and close-range projection from as little as five inches away.



Unlike projectors with basic touchscreen functionality, it utilizes a unique 10-point proprietary technology called AnyTouch that works on all surfaces and enables responsiveness on par with capacitive displays. In horizontal or vertical projection mode, the device generates a 23-inch interactive touchscreen just like a tablet via computer vision that tracks and reads a user’s touch to detect each tap on the surface instantly without delay. Complete with a built-in battery, 5MP camera and a bi-directional microphone, Puppy Cube also serves as an all-in-one video conferencing tool with a crystal clear picture for use in the office or at home with the whole family. In contrast with projectors designed solely for either entertainment or office purposes, the battery-powered system offers game-changing benefits like interactive entertainment and gaming on the go, hands-on learning with amplified educational apps for users of any age, upgraded presentations and more.
