The Hachi Infinite M1, says the company, features human-computer interaction and AI integration for “unmatched” immersive experiences. The projector combines deep learning technology coupled with high-precision sensors to allow image recognition, gesture recognition, and skeleton recognition.

The Infinite M1, says the company, offers AI-powered education, fitness, and kitchen functions that enable intuitive interactions and immersive experiences for children and adults alike in these settings. Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor, an advanced CPU with a multi-core AI Engine and a new hardware framework for projectors, the Infinite M1 features built-in Android OS 9.0 and a custom UI, allowing users to enjoy third-party apps, games, and entertainment with touchscreen functionality.

The projector includes voice control features, dual 5W speakers, an 8M camera, bi-directional microphone, and wireless pairing across iOS and Android devices. It also enables large-screen video calls for home or work use and serves as a portable home cinema projector.

“We’re thrilled to bring Hachi Infinite M1’s industry-first capabilities into the homes of consumers,” says Song Tang, VP of Technology and Lead of AIoT at Hachi. “The projector’s novel interactive AI capabilities, multitouch technology, and spectacular HD picture come together to create an entirely new category within the smart home market. The debut of Hachi Infinite M1 marks a significant moment for our brand and a huge leap toward our ultimate goal of bettering the everyday lives of our customers through helping them build their ideal smart living ecosystems.”

The Infinite M1 features an ultra-short throw DLP and an HD display of up to 100 inches from half an arm’s length away. Unlike projectors with basic touchscreen functionality, it is powered by a proprietary multitouch technology called AnyTouch that works on all surfaces and enables responsiveness on par with capacitive displays.

In horizontal or vertical projection mode, the device generates a 23-inch interactive touchscreen similar to that of a tablet device, using computer vision that tracks and reads a user’s touch to detect each tap on the surface instantly without delay. Current users of the Infinite M1 can experience its AI Education function, which features interactive games for children employing AI recognition to identify physical objects such as letters and blocks placed within the touch interface.

Hachi’s AI Fitness app, which can recognize and interpret activities, correct form and instruct within a variety of exercise regimens, will roll out in an upcoming software update in Q4 of 2020. The companion AI Kitchen experience is still in development and is expected to release early next year.

The Hachi Infinite retails for $999 and is available now.
