Portable

  • Acer has announced the C250i portable projector – which can take content from your smartphone and throw it on a wall or ceiling.
  • People have been casually playing football, soccer, and ultimate frisbee on the beach and at picnics for decades, but basketball? Not so much. Now that's about to get a lot easier with Uball, a portable, easy-to-set-up hoop and backboard that even has its own unique game rules.
  • Our laptops, tablets and smartphones serve us well when we're away from home or the office, but sometimes we want more. More speed, more storage and much more screen. We can already buy portable screens, but few tick as many boxes as the minimalist BladeX and BladeX Pro.
  • Positioned as an answer to the environmental toll associated with toilet-paper and flushable wipes, a startup from Santa Monica in California has launched a portable, rechargeable bidet, which looks more like a powerbank. Something you may be thankful for if it ever fell out of your bag at brunch.
  • ​While some people might say that electronic devices have no business being on camping trips, the fact is that items such as LED lanterns, GPS units, two-way radios and cameras all have batteries that need charging. The Giga is designed to meet that need, using the power of the wind.
  • Nebra's AnyBeam is a portable 720p projector that's small enough to fit in your pocket, It's pitched as the world's smallest pocket cinema projector, and comes in not one, but four variants, including a board for a Raspberry Pi and a funky sphere.​
  • ​Xgimi – the Chinese company behind 2017's CC Aurora and the Z4 before that – has launched the MoGo Pro all-in-one projector on Indiegogo. The 1080p Android projector comes with built-in Harmon Kardon speakers, in a backpack-friendly format for go anywhere all-in-one entertainment.​
  • ​While some businesses or research facilities have a constant need for a cleanroom, there are others that only require one once in a while – or perhaps they sometimes need to set one up in the field. It was with such scenarios in mind that the CAPE portable cleanroom was created.
  • ​Keyboard players rarely get to the front of the stage. If only they had an instrument they could strap on like a guitar... There is of course just such a keyboard, but the keytar hasn't really caught on. Yamaha is hoping that will change with the launch of the Sonogenic SHS-500.​
  • Desktop 3D printers generally spend most of their life in a basement workshop or home office. YouTuber Thomas Sanladerer wanted something that could go where he did so modified a small inexpensive unit to run on battery power and be controlled with a smartphone.​
  • ​Since launching in 1999, Lippold Haken's Continuum Fingerboard has helped unlock expressive creativity in musicians around the globe. But a full-sized Continuum is priced way out of reach of many electronic music players, so Haken Audio has launched the ContinuuMini on Kickstarter.​
  • Practical as camping lights are, most aren’t much to look at by themselves. Solight Design is trying to change that with the Qwnn, an origami-inspired lantern that folds flat, charges via solar power and can also act as a power bank.
