ODIN2 FAQs + Artificial Intelligence

Hi ODIN2 backers!

A lot of people have asked me, "what makes ODIN2 so different from ODIN1?"  

Besides the obvious but big improvements to the optical engine and Android performance, ODIN2's integrated camera, microphone and touchscreen make ODIN2 truly unique.

  • Microphone allows for future integration of artificial intelligence technology like Amazon's Alexa, Google Assistant, etc.  Alexa is open source so we just need to spend some time figuring out how to integrate it.  Google Assistant is not available to non Google products for now, but when it becomes available, we will certainly look into making it available through an update.
  • Camera and microphone allows for group video calling experience on Skype, WeChat, among others. 

FAQs from Backers

[Riverflower, Australia] How far can you put the projector back without affecting the picture quality?  The screen will become bigger as you move ODIN2 away from the wall.  At about 3 yards, the screen size will be approximately 100 inches.  As the screen gets bigger, the light will disperse on a bigger surface area, making it less bright, so in order to compensate, you will need to darken the room.    

[Javier] Can I connect it to my bluetooth speaker? Yes.  If you are viewing it outside on a roof or backyard, an external bluetooth speaker will help with the sound.  We use JBL Charge for our own outdoor viewing.  Here is a video on how to pair to a bluetooth speaker.  https://vimeo.com/127431266 

Engineering Progress

This latest iteration will allow ODIN2 to fully take advantage of video calling and artificial intelligent applications.  Because ODIN2 runs on Android, we have a lot of options.
