BeamBox Evolution R-2 pico-projector packs 40 lumens brightness

BeamBox have announced their latest pico-projector, and while we're still waiting for the company's MiLi Evolution iPhone-case-cum-projector to arrive, the Evolution R-2 should tide us over.  Based around a 40 lumen LCoS chip, making it one of the brighter picos we've seen, the R-2 has an integrated media player for photos, audio and video (like the Evolution R-1 we reviewed last year) together with both PC/Mac and A/V inputs.

BeamBox MiLi Evolution iPhone Projector gets bargain price-tag

BeamBox R1 pico-projector: Unboxing Video & First Impressions

BeamBox's 30-lumen Evolution R1 pico-projector doesn't officially begin shipping until the start of April, but SlashGear managed to acquire one ahead of the launch.  Measuring a short, sturdy 108 x 59 x 28mm and tipping the scales at 175g, the R1's party trick is not only projecting external AV sources up to 100-inches at 640 x 480 resolution, but content from its own onboard media player.
