Capsule II uses a top-grade DLP (Digital Light Processor) to project a beautiful 720p HD picture onto 100 inches of screen, tent, wall… or pretty much any other light-colored surface in your vicinity.
Powered by OSRAM LEDs, Capsule II boasts twice the brightness of its predecessor. The brand-new hardware is enhanced by IntelliBright™ technology, smart software that adjusts localized brightness in real-time to deliver a vivid more radiant image, even in brighter environments.
Not only is Capsule II’s internal speaker 60% more powerful than Capsule, thanks to some neat internal architecture the driver enclosure has also been expanded by 50%. This extra space allows sound to develop more power and resonance. In other words: Big Space = Big Bass.
Capsule II utilizes premium "Transducers designed by SCANSPEAK®". For over 45 years, Scan-Speak has been designing transducers that offer unrivaled sound quality.
Android TV offers thousands of movies, shows, and games from Google Play, YouTube, and other streaming apps. Voice search and personalized recommendations mean more time being entertained and less time hunting for something good.
Capsule II is the pint-sized portal to an entire universe of high-definition entertainment.
Download and watch the world’s most popular streaming services including Hulu, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Twitch, and much, much more.
Introducing console-style Android games. Immerse yourself in arcade racing, 3D battles, and beautiful adventures. Or play a quick round of your favorite casual game. Whether you explore alone or compete online to earn achievements, Android TV offers a new way to play Android games on your phone, tablet, or TV.
Capsule II comes with its own gamepad, offering you instant action with all your favorites, including Zombie Age 2, BombSquad, Mars: Mars, Air Attack 2, Orbia: Tap and Relax, Hungry Shark, BombSquad Pro, and more.
And it’s not just Android games. Capsule II supports 1080p@60fps input, which is compatible with Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox. Mario, Spidey, and Master Chief never looked so good on the go.
The Nebula Gamepad (included with the Gaming Combo) is a console-inspired controller to take precision control of your favorite Android titles. For detailed specifications of the gamepad, please refer to the FAQ section by clicking here.
Cast your favorite entertainment apps - movies & TV shows, music, games, sports, and more - from your Android or iOS device, Mac or Windows computer, or Chromebook.
Note: For iOS devices, please refer to “How to Use Google Chromecast with iPad, iPhone and Android” or “Set up your Chromecast device” for more information.
With the Google Assistant built in, you can quickly access entertainment, get answers and control devices around your home. Press the mic button on your remote or on your phone via the Android TV app to get started.
Just say: “Play some music” or “Show me action movies.”
Capsule II projects a sharp, high-definition image in less than a second thanks to its unique auto-focus technology.
Watch via physical connections like HDMI and USB, or wirelessly over WiFi, Bluetooth, and Chromecast.
An inevitable byproduct of Capsule II’s increased brightness and resolution is a bigger appetite for power. Fortunately, thanks to its high-power USB-C charging port, it never goes hungry.
Capsule II’s USB-C port with Power Delivery technology has a 30W input (twice as much as the first-generation Capsule). With typical power consumption around 20W, this means that you can watch and charge simultaneously via the included Power Delivery wall charger.
Thanks to the enormous output of the Anker wall charger, it can also be used to charge laptops, phones, and tablets at full speed.
To help strike the delicate balance between picture quality, brightness, and battery-life Capsule II’s hardware and software have been tuned to squeeze every last drop of power from the internal battery. Capsule II projects 3 hours of HD cinema on a single charge, that’s enough to play classics like Pulp Fiction, The Green Mile, and 2001: A Space Odyssey in their entirety; that gigantic flying space baby never looked so good.
And as you read this, Capsule II is still being refined and optimized. When it is ready to ship, playtime should be even longer.
Despite its suped-up specs, Capsule II’s cylindrical shape and small size ensure that it still fits conveniently in almost any backpack or bag.
The week of November 29th, 2018, we received our first working sample of Capsule II. The picture and audio still have a long way to go but we were so excited to give you a sneak peek that we made a few videos to share the progress.

You may remember us from last year when we crowdfunded our first portable projector, Capsule. That project became the most funded projector in crowdfunding history, shipped bang on time, and won world-renowned design awards. So far, it has enhanced the entertainment of 50,000 people and their families. So why are we doing it again?
From the moment Capsule shipped we read, watched, translated, interpreted, analyzed, and digested every single piece of feedback we could find. It took us a full year of research and development before we were confident we could deliver a product that was a worthy successor to Capsule.
And as our way of saying thank you to you guys, the crowdfunding community, we’re here to offer Capsule II for an incredible price while we finish up development and production.
Risks and challenges
We fully expect Capsule II to be delivered on time, with all features ready to go.
We’re partnering with reliable manufacturers that we’ve worked with before and to put it simply, this ain’t our first rodeo.
With that said, there is always the risk of unexpected bumps and turns on the Mass Production Highway. In the unlikely event that we do meet any such issues, we promise to be completely transparent with backers. As soon as we know anything, you will too.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
