The Capsule is rated for 100 lumens and I measured 85, making it the darkest projector we’ve tested. However, it is small and inexpensive.

There’s no zoom or shift in the lens, but unlike many budget projectors it does have a focus wheel. Personally, I prefer simple analogue control like this to most auto focus functions.

The top of the capsule shows its four buttons.

These are the only buttons. To control the Capsule, you need either the remote control or the free Nebula Connect app.

The remote control is higher than the projector. You won’t end up using it much because it’s a lot easier to use the app.

The Capsule can also act as a Bluetooth speaker. There is a standard tripod mount on the bottom.

The capsule tries to mix with some cans of soda and coffee.
