Nintendo SNES Classic Mini: Price, games, stock updates and more

By Spencer Hart 2017-10-13T10:44:45.285Z. We love the Nintendo Switch for its portability, but multiplayer gaming isn't ideal on its small 6.2-inch screen. Enter the OJO Portable Projector Dock , which can display your games up to 150-inches onto any surface.

The projector will have a stereo speaker built - in , a 120-inch equivalent screen back up with 200 lumens and it will also act as a backup battery for the Nintendo Switch . I’ve included the known specs towards the bottom of this post.

We think this is a great idea, really building on the Switch's go-anywhere ethos. 

OJO measures 172 x 80 x 70mm, and resembles the games console's original dock.

It packs a four hour battery life, and is charged via microUSB (not USB-C, unfortunately). OJO also acts as a back-up power supply for the console.

The projector output is a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels at 200 lumens. That doesn't sound too impressive, but the videos shared on the brands Twitter account look pretty good, so were hopeful it'll be sufficient.

Sharp's smartphone robot gets a more 'affordable' WiFi version

  Sharp's smartphone robot gets a more 'affordable' WiFi version If you've been waiting for a price drop for Sharp's super adorable robot phone, your wait is sort of over. As of October 6th, you can get a RoBoHon for 138,000 yen (excluding tax) which is about $1,230. That's a notable 60,000 yen or $530 drop from the original price, but there's a catch: this new offering doesn't come with cellular function. Apart from that, this WiFi-only RoBoHon (SR-02M-W) is otherwise identical to its LTE counterpart (SR-01M-W), packing the same Snapdragon 400 chipset, Android 5.

- A Nintendo Switch Dock With A Projector Built In ? ojo the new switch projector doc!

It’s a Nintendo Switch dock with a built - in 20,000 mAh battery so it needn’t be plugged in. It also has built - in stereo speakers, so you don’t even have to As its name implies, it’s got its own 200 lumens HD projector , so you could realistically play Switch games on the big screen, just about anywhere.

OJO boosts the Switch's audio with a dual speaker stereo system. The brand claims this will provide "a rich quality sound, both louder and fuller than the Switch’s internal speakers". 

The dock also features an auxiliary port, allowing you to connect it to an external speaker system.

To keep cool, the dock uses a vortex duct combination cooling system, with both fans and a copper radiator to keep both the projector and console cold.

As well as the audio port, OJO also features a HDMI input so it can be used with a number of other devices from tablets and smartphones to bluray players.

It sounds like a really cool idea, and we seriously hope the company is successful with its crowdfunding, and then have the ability to deliver (unlike some crowdfunded projects).

OJO is launching on Indiegogo on 24th October 2017 and, assuming everything goes to plan, will be in gamers hands by February 2018.

This DIY Nintendo Switch can play the retro games the real one can’t .
The Nintendo Switch is great for a lot of things, but when it comes to playing retro games, you’re better off looking at something like the SNES Classic than Nintendo’s current-generation console. Or, if you’re like Tim Lindquist, a hardware modder / electrical engineering student at Iowa State University, you build your own Switch-esque console, which through the power of open-source emulation software, can not only play retro Nintendo games, but basically any retro title you can imagine, via Hackaday.Lindquist’s device — cleverly called the “Nintimdo RP” — goes beyond being a simple Raspberry Pi emulator, though.
