Tipron is a home robot that can automatically project an 80 inch screen from a distance of 3 meters. Its transforming function allows it to project at a variety of different heights and angles and contract to a compact size when not in use. Tipron will automatically adjust its height depending on its current operating mode, for example, Tipron can contract to 40 cm height when charging and moving, then expand to 80 cm when projecting or shooting images. Furthermore, images and video up to 1m high can be projected by adjusting the projection angle.

Tipron’s projector unit can adjust roll, pitch and yaw and features keystone correction so you can project distortion free images and videos to any place on a wall or ceiling. The built in speaker allows you to watch videos without the need for any additional hardware.

Tipron can move to designated places automatically and will return to it’s charging station automatically when it needs to recharge. You can use the Tipron smartphone app to move to specific locations at set times of the day. Also the app can manually remote control Tipron with the live camera video feed being streamed to your smartphone.

Using Tipron’s built in HDCP compatible HDMI socket it is possible to connect and project video from a PC, game console, Blu-Ray player or other media device. You could also connect a wireless streaming device such as Chromecast to enable projection of internet content to any location in your home.

Tipron also features a host of internet connection features. You can register a Twitter hashtag, timeline or news and display that information at a desired location and time.  For example, register a hashtag for a live sports match and Tipron can automatically move next to the TV when the sports match starts, then project the hash tagged messages on the wall. This is possible every time the sports match starts. Internet connected functions will be improved and added so various video streaming services can be used with Tipron.
