The cool Cube mobile projector by RIF6 is the first projector built specifically for smartphones and tablets. It is ultra portable (2” x 2”) and turns your 5-inch screen into a 120-inch display.
This portable projector extends the functionality of your mobile device in unique ways. Because it has a rechargeable battery, you can use it without being plugged in to a power source. This lets you unleash your creativity allowing you to project your smartphone (or other devices) in unexpected places.
You can do things like:
- Have a summer family movie night outside – project the movie on a sheet or house wall
- Project the constellations from your smartphone on the ceiling while you tell your child a nighttime story
- Watch YouTube movies projected on a wall so everyone can see
- Project the mobile app game you are playing so friends and family can see
- Take it camping and play videos against your camper or tent
The ultra portable size and the ability to run off its battery allows you to make a presentation almost anywhere.
- Have your presentation on your phone and project it on a conference wall (no need to connect a big projector)
- Project a project plan or conceptual ideas in any office
- The super portable size makes it easy to carry it with you to a customer site for presentations, training, diagraming, etc.
I’ve done some mission work where we had limited access to power but wanted to play videos for children. Using the Cube by RIF6 you can project the video from your smartphone or use a Mirco SD card and play directly from the Cube – anywhere, with or without a power source!
The Cube projects content (pictures, video, etc) from an HDMI or Micros SD input source. You can use iPhones, Android, laptops or other devices but some may require the purchase of additional cables (including iPhones – see below). The Cube has a mini HDMI connector and ships with several cables that support a variety of smartphones and other devices – Standard HDMI to mini HDMI, HML 5 pin and HML 11 pin cables. To connect the Cube to a PC without HDMI ports, Kindle Fire, Roku, Chromecast, etc., you may need to purchase additional adapters from third parties. See RIF6.com for more details.
Use with iPhones
To use the Cube with an iPhone you will need to purchase a lightning cable to HDMI converter. Or, if you have access to power and a Wi-Fi network you can connect an Apple TV directly to the Cube and then use Airplay. See the RIF6.com website for more details.
Good to Know
The RIF6 Cube uses a 50 Watt LED bulb. It is bright however; it works best in a very dark room. If you need to have the lights on when you are presenting a traditional projector will work best.
The rechargeable battery lasts for ~90 minutes. So, if you are camping and don’t have access to a power source, you may want to bring a backup charger.
How well does it work?
In my experience it works very well, but not perfect. It was a little finicky when setting up and I tested it on various devices, some of which did not work. Also, if I moved the device around after set up, I got some static feedback. So, getting it set up and not moving it might work best.
It is a really neat device and gives you creative ways to add value to family time, adventure and business.
