  • The Anker Nebula Capsule 2 is an HD projector about the size of a can of soda.
  • The projector now features Android TV as well as Google Assistant built right in.
  • The Nebula Capsule 2 will sell on Kickstarter for $369 for early birds, or $399 retail.


Anker just held a hardware launch event in New York where it announced the release of several new products. One of those products is the Anker Nebula Capsule 2 — an HD projector with Android TV built in, all in a form factor about the size of a soda can.

The Nebula Capsule 2 is, naturally, the follow-up to the original Anker Nebula Capsule. That projector featured Android 7.1 Nougat and worked primarily by mirroring your phone’s screen. However, the new, updated version of the device will be an all-in-one entertainment solution, allowing you to project a full Android TV experience onto any wall you like.

What’s more, the Nebula Capsule 2 has Google Assistant built in as well, so you can simply ask Assistant to play a movie, a YouTube video, or a TV show and boom: it’s projected on your wall.

Editor's Pick

Since the Nebula Capsule 2 is so small, it’s built to travel: it’s 5.9 inches tall, 3.2 inches wide, and weighs 680 grams, or about 1.5 pounds. It features HDMI and both USB Type-C and regular USB ports.

The Nebula Capsule 2 also has Bluetooth and Chromecast support, so if you want to use it as a very expensive Bluetooth speaker or Chromecast player, you can do that too.

However, you won’t be watching Blade Runner 2049 on this bad boy while traveling: although the Nebula Capsule 2 has a 10,000mAh battery, Anker says it only gets about 2.5 hours of video time before needing a recharge.

The Anker Nebula Capsule 2 will sell on Kickstarter at first, with early birds nabbing the device for $369. If you miss out on the early bird window, it will sell at retail for $399. Click the button below to get yours:
