Z4 Aurora promises to be the "Entertainment Center of The Future"

And judging by its steamrollered, 348% funded Indiegogo campaign, it looks like it could be

How does a 4K Smart LED projector with Harman/Kardon audio, gesture control, Android OS, 3D projection and a 300-inch screen size sound?

Promising to be a "smart projector beyond your imagination", the recently launched Z4 Aurora Indiegogo campaign has blown through its funding goal and currently sits 348% funded with 18 days left to go.

The project, which is the work of Chinese startup XGIMI, has currently banked a rather tasty $173,572 dollars and shows no signs of stopping.

Its runaway success probably comes courtesy of its feature list that, while it should be taken with a pinch of salt because it's a crowdfunder, looks pretty darn impressive considering that right now you can pick up a Z4 Aurora for $449 dollars (£310).

That feature list includes:

  • 4K projection
  • 300-inch screen
  • Harman/Kardon stereo
  • ORSAM illumination
  • 700 ANSI lumens
  • TI DLP technology
  • 3D projection
  • W-Fi streaming
  • Bluetooth streaming
  • 3D gesture control
  • Smartphone control
  • Bluetooth remote control
  • 30,000-hour lifetime

So, yep, that'll probably be why. The Z4 Aurora even comes with built-in vertical +/-30 degree and horizontal +/-30 degree keystone correction, meaning that you can place the projector off centre and it will still display an accurate image on your surface of choice.

But anyway, enough talking, here is the promo video:
