What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Modular + Cordless + Intuitive = Infinite Possibilities   

Inspired by the iconic LEGO toy blocks

 

 

 

Why iBeamBLOCK  

Many of you will have had experience using a projector to display “digital content” either at work, at a client’s site, at home or in other situations. Given by the prevailing projector specifications in the market today, it is likely that you will have faced some challenges which lead to a deceleration in the completion of your task.  

Typical challenges include:  

  • bulky size and heaviness.  
  • connectivity between projector and your mobile devices.  
  • access to AC power.  
  • access to Digital Files in various formats.  
  • projecting of content from different people / end devices in one meeting.

 

iBeamBLOCK is the solution  

We want to make DLP projectors fun and creative. Inspired by the Iconic LEGO toy blocks, the Aiptek Team has come up with a totally new concept for a projection system.

 

 Introducing iBeamBLOCK

 

 Share Anywhere. Amaze Anytime.

 

 

 

  • Do-It-Yourself Configuration (stack and un-stack component blocks) 
  • Blocks are connected via magnetic pogo pins
  • Future proof design for subsequent blocks

Crystal Clear Projection   

The bright native HD (1280x720 Pixel) projector displays Excel, Word, PowerPoint and PDF documents crystal clear with 400 lumens of brightness, an image diagonal of up to 120“ and a throw ratio of 1.2. Due to an HDMI interface the DLP projector with RGB LEDs can also be used as a standalone device.  

  • Unique technology (Manhattan-type DMD array) provides crystal clear projection quality of texts & lines.   
  • Project 100" at 2.7 meters distance
  • Low throw ratio 1.2, projects 33% extra screen size compared to others.
 

Powerful Win 10 Tablet   

Thanks to the Windows 10 tablet, which has a Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB, micro USB as well as a micro SD card interface, data can be transferred quickly and easily. Furthermore, the powerful 4.5” tablet with multi-touch IPS LCD acts as a control unit. Thereby, the Intel Z3735F Quad Core processor with 1.33 GHz and 2 GB RAM ensures smooth operation. Office mobile apps for Windows 10 deliver the capabilities of a mobile office and provide on-the-go productivity such as business presentations.  

Business and Entertainment.  Responsive and Intuitive.   Maximum Productivity.

  • The powerful 4.5” tablet with multi-touch IPS LCD acts as control unit.
 Projection via HDMI or Pad unit

Reliable Power Bank  

The power bank ensures a cable free projection of up to 2 hours without an external power source. With 13,200 mAh battery capacity it can be used for Smartphone charging.

Auto-Keystone Correction 

Keystoning (vertical) refers to the situation in which the projected image is noticeably wider at either the top or bottom. It occurs when the projector is not perpendicular to the screen. 

The Auto-Keystone Correction provides an optimal image from any angle without a time-consuming-set-up, which is very helpful for mobile presenters.

Intuitive Design - Pogo Pin   

Magnetic pogo-pins allow a secure and intuitive connection without any cable clutter and make sure all three parts of the iBeamBLOCK are connected securely and stay in place, therefore achieving the best user experience. Moreover, this technology provides a smooth high speed signal transmission like via HDMI.

Elegant Modularity & Portability  

The exterior housing features a sleek and elegant metallic finish which attracts everyone´s attention. With a total weight of less than 1 kg and dimensions of only 125x95x64 mm (LxWxH), the compact system fits in the smallest briefcase - especially when it is disassembled in its 3 components. Therefore, the iBeamBLOCK is perfect for presentations during business trips. Furthermore, the extraordinary design allows performance updates.

 

 iBeamBLOCK is awarded New Invention Patent

Risks and challenges

Creating visual and aural experiences that can empower, inspire, entertain and enrich the lives of our customers are at the core of our actions. Therefore, we want to deliver a superior user experience, high quality and performance as well as portability in all our products.The iBeamBLOCK is a completely new product. You will be the first to receive it and we are absolutely confident that you will be absolutely amazed. But moving from prototype to mass production brings challenges at times. We counter the risk of interruptions to production due to a detailed manufacturing preparation. After a successful trial production we are now ready to start mass production. Therefore, we are convinced that we can stick to our planned timeline.
