    BeamBox Evolution R-2 pico-projector packs 40 lumens brightness

    BeamBox have announced their latest pico-projector, and while we’re still waiting for the company’s MiLi Evolution iPhone-case-cum-projector to arrive, the Evolution R-2 should tide us over.  Based around a 40 lumen LCoS chip, making it one of the brighter picos we’ve seen, the R-2 has an integrated media player for photos, audio and video
    (like the Evolution R-1 we reviewed last year) together with both PC/Mac and A/V inputs.


    If you want to use the 800 x 600 SVGA projector with your PC or Mac, you can hook it up via the MiniUSB port.  Meanwhile, the A/V inputs are intended to be used with DVD players and other media sources.  BeamBox reckon you’ll get up to a 75-inch picture with a 200:1 contrast ratio, and there’s 1GB of internal storage together with a microSD card slot.The 12W LED is rated for up to 20,000hrs, and there’s a tiny 0.5W speaker along with a headphone socket.  The BeamBox Evolution R-2 is available now, priced at £250/$361.60.
