Favi Pico+ projector needs no wires or connected devices

Most projectors are pretty boring to me. We commonly associate these hulking, ugly things with school classrooms, work meetings, or presentations in front of groups. The kind of projector I like is the one that pulls out of my pocket when I want to toss up some cartoons or a movie on a blank wall. That’s my kind of fun. FAVI Pico smart projector appSome projectors have built-in wireless to stream from smartphones and tablets, while others have internal storage options. But if you want the whole package, Favi’s latest Pico+ Smart Projector has all that on top of an Android OS.

FAVI announces the Pico+ Smart Projector -- an All-in-One Android Projector PC

Android is a very robust operating system that finds itself in many places. Other than phones and tablets, it also runs on laptops, desktops and cameras to name a few. The secret to this diversity is that Google's mobile OS is powered by the open-source Linux kernel. Today, Android is shoe-horned into yet another form; a projector. Yes, a company named FAVI announces the Pico+ Smart Projector, which is an All-in-One Android Projector PC. Is it cool, or just plain weird?

Review: FAVI Boomerang Wireless Speaker

All in all, the FAVI Boomerang performs and delivers. It absolutely beats out stock speakers in any mobile device. The major selling point is the way it handles and tilts tablet screens for optimal viewing.Of course, one may argue that a separate speaker and tablet stand can serve the same purpose. But why have two devices when the Boomerang wraps it all in one? It’s convenient, and you can wear it around your neck. What? It’s fun.Even if an encased tablet is too thick for the grooves, the FAVI Boomerang has muscle enough to hold it up anyway. The design works, and the speaker folds down for easy packing. 

Boomerang Produces High-Quality Sound

The FAVI Boomerang is a dual wireless Bluetooth speaker with NFC connect. It's a portable home theater for your iPad. Honestly, I was shocked at how fabulous the sound quality was when I tested it out...The expansion sleeve design of the crescent shaped speakers allows for easy adjustable sizing for the neck and viewing angle for the iPad.

The FAVI Audio+ Speaker Seamlessly Amplifies Your Smartphone

The Favio Audio+ is a pyramid-shaped wireless speaker that can automatically amplify smartphone sounds. The device uses 'Set to Connect' technology; this means users don't need to plug their phone into the speaker or pair it via Bluetooth. Instead, they just turn the speaker on and set their device on the speaker to get it to work.

The Favi Pico+: A Powerhouse Projector in a Small Package

About the size of a phablet smartphone, the Pico+ stands barely an inch tall. It’s perhaps a bit large for a pocket, but certainly an easy fit in any carry-on bag.Along one side you’ll find an impressive array of inputs: HDMI, microSD, and USB, plus a microUSB port for charging the projector’s 5,000mAh battery. This last is good not only for about three hours of runtime (according to Favi), but also for charging a mobile device like a smartphone. Yep: the Pico+ doubles as a portable charger.

FAVI AUDIO+ SET TO CONNECT WIRELESS SPEAKER

The speaker does have an identifying mark on it which is Favi Audio logo on the front as well as the Set to connect icon, on the bottom of the speaker you will find the small speaker the two speaker grills on the side are part of a echo chamber effort followed by 3 lights blue red blue, The magic of this speaker is you don’t have to pair just make sure your bluetooth is indeed on then just place the iPhone charger down on the speaker in the coming weeks I will be testing this on Android phone and will be able to tell if it works by first guessing I am going to say NO since the pictures on the box are of a iPhone Looking to design I have tested something like this at CES this year at a larger scale so I’m glad to see a smaller product with the same concept this speaker indeed lives up to the fresh design in my opinion...

The Favi J6-LED-PICO: Leading the Pico Projector Pack

The J6-LED-PICO uses a DLP® chipset paired with an LED light source, meaning it has a long lamp life (30,000 hours to be exact). Resolution of the images are 854x480 (WVGA) at up to 85 lumens of brightness. This is bright enough to generate large images in moderate lighting. A 5000mAh internal battery assures playback time of 3+ hours on a single charge. With the ability to connect to devices via full-HDMI, full-USB, and microSD, the J6-LED-PICO is pretty flexible. However, it is the ability to stream wirelessly via Miracast, Airplay, and DLNA that really has us impressed. With all these features, it's easy to see why we published a video as soon as the package arrived!

A big name for a small device, the FAVI Swivel Screen Portfolio Case with Bluetooth Keyboard

The FAVI Swivel Screen Portfolio Case with Bluetooth keyboard (hence forth known as the FAVI case) is my latest find. I know there are several clam shell keyboard type cases on the market for iPads, but this one is unique in the way it is designed. The FAVI case is designed to be three separate sections that all integrate into one to make the case a compact laptop like setup. The FAVI case consists of a Bluetooth keyboard, an iPad Air case and a stand that connects all the sections together.  - Larry Geisz

FAVI introduces Swivel Screen Portfolio keyboard case for iPad Air

The Swivel Screen Portfolio for iPad Air will by no means render your laptop irrelevant, but it may help you replace it with your iPad for a few more tasks. FAVI Entertainment’s Swivel Screen Portfolio Case features a built-in Bluetooth keyboard, but that’s no big deal; many cases do these days. What’s different is that keyboard attaches to a rotating stand that makes it easy to position the iPad for the best viewing angle. Whether you’re sitting at your desk, in an airplane or on the floor (don’t do that…it’s bad for your back), and whether you’re typing, watching movies or playing games, the Swivel Screen Portfolio Case will allow you to position the iPad accordingly.  - Kirk Hiner

SPEAKER FORMS A RING AROUND THE COLLAR

Don't let the shape of the Boomerang fool you. Although the device's crescent shape makes it look like a pair of headphones, it actually functions as a wireless NFC/Bluetooth speaker you can wear around your neck. Or if that's too much "jewelry'' for your tastes, you can set it on a table and use it to prop up your phone, turning the speaker into a micro-sized home theater. Either way, the speaker from FAVI Entertainment can deliver about 10 hours of respectable sound on one charge.  - Deborah Porterfield

TechnologyTell Review: FAVI Wireless Keyboard

The FAVI Wireless Keyboard gives the functionality of a full keyboard in a shrunk-down size. It’s slightly longer than most large smartphones, but narrower, and about as thick as one with a protective case on. It holds comfortably like a remote control, which is especially so when using the laser. Although lightweight, the keyboard is pretty sturdy for what it is. I wouldn’t sit on it or hide it under something heavy, but it holds up against and resists mighty finger mashing.  - Stanley Goodner

FAVI Radio-Free iPhone SpeakerStand Is Perfect For The Kitchen

Whenever I play music or podcasts in my kitchen, I use a Bluetooth speaker. This means first getting the speaker to talk to the iPhone, and then it means finding a safe spot in the kitchen where my iPhone won’t get killed by spills. The FAVI solves both these problems, by being a stand which connects wirelessly to your iPhone when you set it down on the cradle. 

 The speaker appears to use inductive tech to pick up the good vibrations of your iPhone’s speaker magnet, and then taking that signal and amplifying it.  - Charlie Sorrel

FAVI audio+ Set to Connect speaker simplifies wireless speaker connectivity

When it boils down to your choice of wireless speakers, you would have plenty of models to choose from in the market at the moment.

Favi Pico+ Projector with Miracast and Airplay Wireless display

Not only that, it wants to make sure that it can last the distance, which is why it comes with a best-in-class 5,000mAh battery that is able to run for a good 3 hours of continuous playback in eco-mode, while its power bank feature would also let you juice up your mobile device, both while projecting or when the projector is turned off.

This really turns your TV into a smart TV. What I like it for is it’s like a USB and you can plug it right in, it’s small and have its own application and streams the media no problem and shares media no problem, have the internet browser as well….This one impresses me for its size and its affordability. Also from the same company is the keyboard controller…it does a great job with connecting to projector screen, television keyboard, and I have to say, for me, what is cool about it is the keys are a little bigger than normal and its backlit so when you’re in the dark you’ll be able to see it still. It gives you quick access to your video collection and all that kind of stuff. It’s great for presentation. That’s one thing I’m looking forward to trying out a little more is its presentation type aspects.  - FOX NEWS

FAVI Bluetooth PC / Tablet Keyboard and Presenter with Laser Pointer Review

 I don’t know how many Bluetooth keyboards I’ve got that I don’t use anymore. I don’t know how many HTPC wireless keyboard/mice/track pad things I’ve tried and ended up adding to the island of misfit toys where gadgets go to die because they were too bulky to use or have around the living room. I don’t even want to think about all the times I’ve tried to peck out emails on small phone screens. Fortunately my current job doesn’t require much time making presentations, but I do remember endlessly walking over to the laptop to press a key for the next slide. The FAVI Bluetooth PC / Tablet Keyboard and Presenter with Laser Pointer could step into all those roles with ease, and it’s small and light enough to toss into your gadget bag so you’ve always got it handy.  - John Schettino

Review: Favi Entertainment SmartStick and Wireless Keyboard Controller with Mouse TouchPad

 The SmartStick was very easy to set up, mainly because our TV had a USB port which we used to power the SmartStick.

Once it’s turned on you go through the typical custom Android welcome screens and you’re ready to roll.  - GeekBeat.tv
