Gizmo Watch: Movies on the Go with Nebula Capsule 3

In evaluating the Nebula Capsule 3 projector by Anker, one notable drawback stands out: its limited screen size when used at a short throw distance. While the device impresses with its exceptional picture quality when projected from about five feet away, the maximum screen size you can achieve at this distance is only around 50 inches.

This single limitation dashed my plans for a living room film festival, as I had hoped to binge-watch series on Amazon Prime and revisit my movie collection.

For those of us residing in small apartments, where space is at a premium, there isn’t sufficient room to position the projector 12-14 feet away to create a 100-inch screen on the opposite wall. Given the stunning picture quality at a short throw distance, it’s natural to desire a larger screen at the same resolution.The Nebula Capsule 3 projector by Anker is quite vivid in resolution and clear whether you are streaming movies or TV shows, playing games or using the device for presentations at home or on-the-go.

Unfortunately, this isn’t feasible because moving farther back with the Capsule 3 leads to a decrease in brightness from its laser projection system. Consequently, even with all lights off and the room darkened, achieving the cinema-like experience I had anticipated becomes challenging.

The Capsule 3, in this regard, seems to promise more than it delivers. While the projector excels in many aspects, its screen size limitation may disappoint those with high expectations. Nevertheless, the Nebula Capsule 3 offers a compelling package in most other aspects, though its price may not be the most budget-friendly.

In the realm of portable projectors, the Capsule 3 has generated significant interest due to its promise of high-definition entertainment in a compact form. Its pocket-sized design, slightly larger than a soda can, makes it incredibly portable for various scenarios, from camping trips to impromptu movie sessions with friends.

The projector boasts a powerful laser engine that delivers full-HD 1080p image quality, making it ideal for small to medium-sized screens. Operating on Android 11, it seamlessly connects to devices, providing access to thousands of apps from the Android store. Additionally, it offers a vast library of content from streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and YouTube. Connectivity options include Bluetooth, HDMI, and screen mirroring via Chromecast.

With a 53Wh battery, the Capsule 3 provides at least 2.5 hours of usage, and in our tests, it exceeded three hours with sound set to a low volume. Its 8W Dolby Digital speaker delivers clear and detailed audio, suitable for streaming, gaming, or presentations. It can even serve as a standalone Bluetooth speaker, rivaling dedicated speakers of similar size.

One of the standout features is its 300 ANSI Lumens brightness, remarkable for its compact size. At short-throw distances of less than 10 feet, the Capsule 3 competes favorably with larger projectors, making it an excellent choice for on-the-go entertainment.

The user interface is user-friendly, with easy setup and intuitive on-screen menus accessible via touch controls or the supplied remote. The Capsule 3 simplifies focusing with its auto-focus and keystone correction features, ensuring a sharp and aligned image regardless of projection angle or distance.

While the Nebula Capsule 3 may not be the most budget-friendly option at a retail price of Dh3,999, it offers a unique blend of portability, image quality, and sound. It’s a game-changer in the world of portable projectors, catering to those who value entertainment on the go. Whether you’re a movie enthusiast, gamer, or simply enjoy sharing content, the Capsule 3 has a lot to offer.

In summary, the Nebula Capsule 3 impresses with its portability, image quality, and sound. While its price may deter budget-conscious buyers, it excels in several aspects and is a valuable addition for tech enthusiasts, especially those who seek portable entertainment options. Whether you’re planning outdoor movie nights or need a versatile projector for presentations, the Capsule 3 delivers.
