SPUD is a 24 inch Collapsible Projector that fits in a small bag
Need a second screen for your laptop or a portable display for viewing presentations, videos, or games running on your phone or tablet? There are a number of portable monitors on the market, including some that draw power directly from your device via USB.
But SPUD is something a little different: it’s a portable screen that has a bigger display area than most… but which also collapses into a compact, book-sized package for easy portability.
The Spontaneous Pop-up Display (SPUD)
SPUD is the only high resolution, 24-inch display with the awesome benefit of ultra-portability. It collapses just like a ruggedized umbrella to the size and weight of a paperback book – making it ideal for anyone on the go.
When expanded, SPUD uses custom optics combined with the latest DLP technology to produce the sharp, bright image that you need. Either with an HDMI cable or wireless adapter, SPUD can be connected to a smartphone, tablet, or laptop – no matter where you are!
From watching movies on the go to being more productive while away from your office, SPUD optimizes the visual experience on practically any device.
One of the most exciting things about SPUD is the many different ways that you can use it. For entertainment, SPUD is basically a portable TV or movie screen.
So here’s how SPUD works: it’s basically a rear-projection display that collapses and expands around an umbrella. The projector is built into the back of the device and supports brightness levels between 100 and 225 lumens.
It projects at a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, accepts HDMI or wireless input, and has a battery that’s good for up to 4 hours of run time.
When folded up, the whole thing measures about 7.5″ x 5.6″ x 2.2.” Expanded, it measures 21″ x 11″ x 14″ and creates a screen that’s 24″ across diagonally.
Since this is a projector, it’s going to look better in some environments than others. Even some of the developers’ own promotional images show a display that looks pretty dull from some angles.
And while SPUD is pretty compact when folded up, it’s actually a bit bulky when expanded, looking more like a CRT monitor than a thin LCD display.
