Earlier this year, I had a blast reviewing Anker’s little portable projector, the Nebula Capsule ($349). I mainly connected it (via HDMI) to the retro gaming console I was playing at the time, the Analog Super Nt, so I could play Pokemon Blue on the huge screen that it projected on my wall (up to 100 inches), but the Nebula Capsule can be used in a number of other ways. It easily connects to a laptop or smartphone, so you can project large slideshows and presentations. It’s a 360-degree Bluetooth speaker, so you can bring it anywhere and listen to tunes. And it’s a little computer by itself, running an Android 7.1, so when connected to wi-fi it can play movies from Netflix, YouTube or Hulu. (You can also download these shows, the same way you would on your smartphone or tablet, so you can watch them when wi-fi isn’t available.) Essentially, the Nebula Capsule is a pocket-sized cinema, and a very useful gadget to take on long work trips and family vacations.
It’s a niche product, for sure, but there aren’t too many portable projectors as small and as intuitive as the Nebula Capsule. If you’re looking for another alternative, there’s the Sony MP-CD1 ($399), but that’s more expensive and needs additional accessories, such as a speaker and a laptop/smartphone, to get the most out of it. If you’re even a little bit interested in the Nebula Capsule, today’s a great day to think extra hard if you want to press that “purchase” button. The normally $349 gadget is discounted on Amazon for just $248 — that’s $101 off. This is one of Amazon’s “Deals of the Day,” so don’t expect this deal to last long.
