Kickstarter Campaign: The Spontaneous Pop-up Display (SPUD)
[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_eWBGSw2ds[/embed] This year was some of the most innovative Kickstarter campaigns and products I have seen thus far. One of the newest technology product currently on Kickstarter is The Spontaneous Pop-up Display (SPUD). SPUD is a high resolution 24-inch screen that collapses & expands like an umbrella.
The Spontaneous Pop-up Display (SPUD) uses custom optics combined with the latest DLP technology to produce a sharp and bright image. SPUD can either connect with an HDMI cable or wireless adapter via smartphone, tablet, or laptop. When SPUD is collapsed, it’s about the size of a book at 5.64 inches wide, 2.17 inches high, 7.52 inches long (17 cm wide, 5.5 cm high, 19 cm long). SPUD also weighs less than 2lbs for convenient portability.
Currently the "SPUD" campaign has exceeded it's goal of $33,000 and the amount pledged is already at $229,965. The campaign still has 42 days to go and there is still time to donate or be an early adapter of SPUD which will ship out world wide in June of 2017. I am in high hopes I will get a SPUD sample to do a full product review for Cutegeek or Hi-Tech Chic. Keep checking back on both sites or on twitter @cutegeek, @nrpena, and @hitechchic for updates on if I get a sample to review.
