    Portable 'Lego-Like' Projector.

    Aiptek builds all kind of mini video projectors. At The Luxury Technology Show Aiptek’s Jamie Tsai, shows us the iBeamBLOCK, a stackable and configurable computing projection system. Jamie said it was inspired by a popular children's interlocking building-block brand. (Hmmm, like LEGO?) Connection among the components is achieved through magnetics and pogo pins, so no cable is needed. Lock them together and the power and other connections are automatically made. It has built-in stereo speakers, and it can project images of up to 100 inches. The included tablet is Windows 10-based; and the projector offers 400 lumens of brightness. Jamie said it will operate for up to two hours, and recharges in four to six hours. A USB port makes the system ideal for use in small-scale video conferencing applications. The 3-piece system has a MSRP of $699.99 and is available now. Also in the video we shot you'll see their boom-box version that can operate for 4 hours on battery and has 8 built-in speaker with a 40 watt amplifier. That sells for $999.99.
