在經過他們攤位時,就對這個鍵盤投影機很有興趣。不過當時還沒接觸時有一點小小的誤會,就是我以為這是內含系統的鍵盤,也就是表面鍵盤,但其實是完整機能的主機,類似於華碩Eee Keyboard的概念。



投影機部分,亮度150流明,支援4:3或16:9 畫面,並內建3W喇叭

Work anywhere with a wall, with a keyboard that's also a projector

If you're short on space at home, the Sho U KiBoJet pico projector-keyboard combo can turn a blank wall into a monitor.

TAIPEI -- Taiwanese company Sho U wants to show you its latest invention, the KiBoJet, a keyboard that cleverly features a built-in pico projector.

We've seen smart keyboards powered by software like Android, such as the OneBoard, but KiBoJet just runs a basic video and picture player. Before you turn your nose up, you can plug in a computer via its HDMI port and get the full-fledged desktop experience. The model above is running Windows 10 via the tiny Intel Compute Stick.

The KiBoJet's pico projector offers 150 lumens of brightness, which should be visible under most indoor lighting. It has a full-HD resolution, and is capable of projecting an image of 21 inches wide up to 33 inches, though this spec is not yet finalized. I found the quality of the projection to be passable, but bear in mind this was a working prototype that Sho U rushed to get ready for the show, so the final product may be a lot better.

Other hardware bits include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support, as well as built-in 3W speakers. One cool thing I noticed was that the keyboard was rocksteady. No matter how quick or forceful I was when pressing down on the keys, the image from the pico-projector didn't even twitch.

The KiboJet unit shown off here at Computex also came with Intel's Compute stick built-in for demo purposes. When the keyboard is finally released in the first half of next year, you'll need that or something similar if you want to use the KiboJet as a PC, or you could pick up a Miracast dongle and project your smartphone's screen through the keyboard.
