Some ideas start simple, just like this one. BEAM is one of the best portable projectors from startup promoted by Don Molenaar, Guust Hilte, and Thomas De Wolf.
During a brainstorm session way back in March 2014, someone came up with an idea what if we could build a projector that could easily fit in any bulb socket. Everybody started sharing ideas on place where users could place Beam in their house. Almost everybody gave different ideas.
In these technologically advanced times, we’re no longer limited by traditional spots and can freely dream of places where we would love to have a screen. So the team decided to have a projector with a screw that can be used in any bulb socket. It should also be able to be placed on any flat surface. So team added some flatness to one side that helps in stabilizing the beam.
What makes Beam so special?
Usually projectors are bulky and big and you won’t to remove them as soon as you’re done using them. Beam was design in a way that it can be parts of your interior. Special software used in this product ensure that it shows you the right information at the right time.
What has been the best part of its development experience?
The team that developed one of the best portable projectors from an idea was proud that it was able to build something from a simple idea and team enjoyed it a lot. The Kickstarted community picked up the baby and did all that was needed in the initial stages of this project.
