Lightsocket smart projector How did you come up with the idea for this product? Many ideas start simple, just like this one. During a brainstorm session in March of 2014 someone came up with the thought âwhat if we could make a projector that you could screw in your light socketâ. The interesting thing is what happened after this thought. Everybody started sharing ideas on where they would place Beam in their house, and almost everyone thought of a different location. We were no longer limited by the traditional spots and could now freely dream up places where we would love to have a screen. Everybody made it their own personal solution, instead of one pre-defined setup. Here we decided that besides just screwing the projector into light sockets it should also be able to be placed on a flat surface. So we added a small flatness on one side that stabilizes Beam. What makes your product special? Normal projectors are big and bulky and you want to get it out of sight as soon as you’re done using them. We designed Beam in a way that it will be a part of your interior. This combined with our software creates an unique product that will show you the right information at the right time! What has been the best part of your startup experience? Developing the product from an idea to a fully working concept was a something that we as a team enjoyed a lot! Also seeing the Kickstarter community pick up our baby as well as they did was awesome!
