The fanless, pocketable Nebra AnyBeam projector can stream video from any HDMI equipped source device, including a Chromecast, Fire TV Stick, laptop, or phone. It’s available on Kickstarter in four versions: standalone, dev kit, Raspberry Pi HAT, and an RPi-Zero W based Monster Ball.

The flagship AnyBeam device weighs only 133 grams and incorporates a 5V DC input, HDMI 1.4b port, a power-ready micro-USB port, and 3.5mm audio jack. There’s also a multi-way navigation switch and a 1W speaker. The developer kit version, which offers easier access to the mainboard beneath the clear acrylic case, has the same components as the commercial version, but without the 1W speaker.

The two Raspberry Pi versions let users set up Kodi/OSMC home cinema interfaces in a matter of seconds. The 65 x 57 x 31mm HAT version weighs 79 grams and connects with a Pi using a DPI interface via the 40-pin header. The device can be powered over the header or via micro-USB, and there are 3x navigation switches.

The Monster Ball is a 10cm diameter sphere that weighs 580 grams. It integrates a Raspberry Pi Zero W, a microSD card, and 3x navigation switches. It’s powered the same way as the HAT, but also offers a 2.5A international power supply and cable.

All the products will ship with 3D and 2D drawings of all parts. They are all due in August except the Monster Ball, which is expected in December. The campaign concludes May 6.
