Galaxy's Edge blasters

Based on everything we’ve seen thus far, theme park fans are soon going to classify all events into two separate time periods: the era before Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens, and the era afterward. Disney’s immersive new Star Wars land opens next year, and we’ve just heard about yet another way they’re going to try to create the illusion that guests are walking around in a galaxy far, far away. Better keep your heads on a swivel, because it looks like there’s going to be blaster fire flying through the air. Read More »

Soon, you’ll be able to mute more than just your uncle’s bad political opinions. Facebook has begun testing out an algorithm that will allow the social media giant to protect you from spoilers.

While a video projector can be the cornerstone of a decent home theater system, it can also be a finicky beast. Projectors kick out a ton of heat and noise, they aren’t super portable, and they often require additional augmentation like a device to actually input a video signal, or speakers so that you can actually hear what’s happening.

That’s why I was so intrigued when I first saw an Indiegogo campaign for Anker’s Nebula Capsule Projector last fall. It actually seemed too good to be true. A projector that was the size of a Coke can, with a speaker built in that was running a version of Android with video apps? For under $500? (It retails on Amazon right now for $300). The prospect was so exciting that I threw caution to the wind and backed the campaign.

I wanted to understand if the Nebula Capsule really could do everything it claimed to. More importantly, I wanted to see if it could help me realize a long-time dream: Watching Netflix projected on my ceiling while lying in bed. Keep reading for our full Nebula Capsule Projector review.
