    Let's agree to disagree then. You see it's a must-have, we see it's nothing more than some junks. Just don't blame anyone when it turned out to be garbage.

    Curious, how are you gonna carry a 1080p monitor around?

    Wherever there's food. And Nintendo.
    Yeah I won't. I'm not calling it a 'must-have' either, just a cool little gadget gag that seems pretty cool.

    Just grab some sort of carrying case/bag and it wouldn't be any more inconvenient than carrying this thing around. 1080p monitors at 32" or less weigh next to nothing these days.

    If you're really stupid and support them, shame on you!

    Notice a price of a proper mini projector: https://www.amazon.com/LG-Electroni...scsubtag=8def9e96-f740-46ca-a5b4-0f24a5020547

    This is on Indiegogo, the prototype doesn't exist, there is no proof they can deliver. If you wanna burn money so hard give it to a charity instead...

    EDIT: This piece of crap atleast exists and probably is 3 times better than the Indiegogo ever will be - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Gig...lgo_pvid=1bfb191d-5882-4b73-a876-d74ef5070b85

    It isn't bad, but most "products" on it are bad. And you dont need a prototype on indiegogo, on kickstarter you need one.

    I mean I thought so, Skull Girls was a game from indiegogo, so I just figured it wasn't bad, but I don't know many people using it compared to kickstarter. I mean shady business practice is shady business practice, so it just means not all things are bad but reputation is important to everyone.

    of course not, but look at this product. Is it really going to exist at all?

    there are several good-quality and portable HDMI projectors that are under $500. This product is a joke.

    People who gave "alternative" projectors, you do realize that the projectors you proposed are either really crappier than this one (srsly the one on aliexpress has so many contradictions on it's page, and the resolution is 320*240...) or way much more expensive (and of course, without all the Switch related options). So yes, using Indiegogo is not a good idea and it's pretty much a bet for the backers. Yes, 480p is a bit ridiculous. But honestly, besides that, it's a good idea and again, for this price, you really can't except something better.

    I got a 1280x800 (works perfect for 720p) DLP projector with HDMI in for $200 on eBay about a year ago. It was used, but even then it blows away anything this could ever want to be.

    If you want a Switch dock, a projector, and a battery, get separate pieces that work well instead of a half assed attempt to build it all together. You can even get USB-C to HDMI adapter cables/pigtails on Amazon.com now that work on the Switch. Don’t like the fact that they’re separate pieces? Get fancy with DIY and build a box for them all. Or get a bunch of zip ties and duct tape. It doesn’t matter. It’ll still be better than this.

    Come on, why being like that? Look, you just said you had to spend 200$ just for the projector, which was already used. So if you had to buy a dock, speakers, a battery, it would be waaasy more expensive. Plus DIY? Unless you have the skills and the tools, not a great idea. You would still have to design the box and buy the components, so not sure it would be that cheap for most people. And duct tape? Really? Yes, the quality of this product is terrible. But the idea is good. And again, for that price, you can't expect more, you said it, you had to spend 200$ on a used projector.

    Tl;dr : Great idea, bad execution, can't really expect stg better for the price.

    The great idea about all this is, THEY EXIST! Indiegogo projects hardly ever turn out to be good or a even at all.
    The projector I liked from aliexpress is dirt cheap, it uses HDMI and is 720p. Get a Nyko dock and a couple of speakers and you're all set. you probably come way under 200$ that this piece of shit is. Also, their speaker solution is Mono and that's is just a no-go.

    Mono? Another thing to add to the list...
    Can you post a link for that projector?
