Beam: The smart projector that fits in any light socket

We are finally ready to unveil what we’ve been working on lately. It’s Beam, a powerful projector equipped with a smart computer inside a beautifully designed casing. We’ve launched this product as a Kickstarter project and you find the project here!

 

You can play games, watch movies or share content from your smartphone or tablet. Beam will assist you in your daily activities, like wake you up in the morning with the latest news and your agenda or show you your social updates when you come home. Beam is easy to set up and control with the Apple or Android app. You can screw it into any light socket or use the included power cable to place it on any flat surface. With Beam we created an easy to use internet of things device that can entertain and assist you throughout the day, perfectly integrated in your home. The technology inside Beam is so unique that we decided to patent it.

We launched Beam as a US project with our newly formed company Beam Labs Inc. as mentioned in an earlier weblog post. Because this is a Kickstarter project we really need all the help we can get. So please share our project, recommend it to others, back it to support it or even buy one!

 

Fish on Wheels at Van Abbemuseum during Dutch Design Week

As part of the exhibition Sense Nonsense our Fish on Wheels will be on display at the Van Abbemuseum. The exposition is a collaboration between the museum and the Design Academy Eindhoven and is also part of the Dutch Design Week 2014.

The exhibition is described as follows: “Through the exhibition Sense Nonsense at the Van Abbemuseum, Design Academy Eindhoven explores the inevitable relation between sense and nonsense, the interplay of sanity and insanity in innovation, and the role of the ridiculous and the absurd in liberating society and industry from the conventional wisdom that drives it.”

At the beginning of this year Fish on Wheels received quite some  worldwide media attention. The device featured in many different TV shows, theaters and online media. This is the first time it is part of an official exhibition and open to the public.

If you’d like to see Fish on Wheels drive around be sure to stop by the Van Abbemuseum from the 18th of October till the 9th of November.

 

Fish on Wheels on Kickstarter today!

Today the crowdfunding website Kickstarter.com has opened its doors to projects from the Netherlands. Because of the world wide success of our Fish on Wheels video we wanted to develop the fish car from the movie into a real product. Kickstarter projects are especially suitable for these kinds of innovative projects so we decided to make sure that we could launch our Fish on Wheels at exactly the moment that the website was open to project creators from the Netherlands.

Take a look at our project page and help us out by spreading the word, donating or buying your very own Fish on Wheels! You can also take a look at the Fish on Wheels website for more information.
