Dos Owls Odin Is An Android Powered Projector/Computer

May 15, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

This little Android powered projector is definitely something to get excited about. It not only runs on Android and has access to the play store, but it’s also small enough to fit into just about any bag making this thing ultra portable. In all honesty, this is really more than just a projector though, it’s pretty much an Android powered computer that has a projector feature, and can really be used for many more purposes than you might expect. It has HDMI support so it can be plugged into things like an Xbox 360 too, or really anything that needs an HDMI in. Lets not forget that it is a projector as well so while it does run Android and it can be used as an Android powered computer, it can also act as a secondary or primary monitor or TV. Pretty slick right?

Just in case you were wondering when and where you could pick one of these up, as of right now the item is unavailable because it hasn’t even reached production. Dos Owls, the company behind it all though did mention that the Odin would be going through its Kickstarter campaign for $495 on May 28th, which is the day after LG’s big announcement to come. The Dos Owls Odin is packed with good stuff, so if you were worried that it might not be able to handle certain tasks like gaming or multi-tasking if you’re considering this from a business or gaming perspective, it holds a quad-core Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.6GHz so it should do just fine with most things. It’s also sporting 2GB of RAM and looks like it will come with three different storage options, with 8GB, 16GB, and 64GB models to come.

As we stated above the Odin will have HDMI support through one single connection for video, it also houses 2 USB ports and a 3.5mm audio port for connecting in your speakers or headphones. It also supports Bluetooth though so you won’t be required to use wired speakers. It’ll come with Wifi 802.11 b/g/n of course so you needn’t worry about a data connection via ethernet, and as far as Android versions go it will be running the latest flavor with Android 4.4 Kit Kat. Although by the time it releases it might be one version behind if we see a new flavor released with the new Nexus devices later this fall.
