Xiaomi is expanding its product line by a range of accessories with a new electric scooter laser and a projector. Earlier this week at an event in Beijing, Xiaomi announced the devices and now they can be viewed and purchase on the official Xiaomi China website.
Electric scooter spec and features
The scooter, named as the Ninebot Plus, is the continuation to Xiaomi’s Ninebot Mini scooter which was released in 2015. It will go on sale for 3499 yuan in China, which is approximately $515, from July 11, however, it’s not yet known if this will make out a release outside of Xiaomi’s motherland.
The Ninebot Mini is believed to be competent of reaching a top speed of 18 km /h and has a battery range of 35 km, featuring an 800W dual-motor engine. As well as dealing with different types of grounds like sand, gravel, wet surfaces, in addition, the Ninebot Mini features a variety of LED headlights, taillights, and indicators.
Unlike its forerunner, the Ninebot Plus also comes with a devoted controller and can cleverly follow you as you stroll. There’s an elective camera accessory you can connect to it too if you’re fascinated by video recording your trips from knee level (just don’t point it upwards).
Xiaomi’s laser projector spec and features
Meanwhile, Xiaomi’s laser projector is a 1080p small throw projector featuring Texas Instruments DLP technology and ALPD 3.0 laser light basis technology. It can be located between 2 and 20 inches gone from a wall to put on show up to 150-inch images.
It will also offer cinema-level 5,000 lumens of intensity and a 3,000:1 contrast ratio amazing features that you normally have to pay more than a few thousand dollars for. The projector will go on rummage sale for 10,000 Yuan (about $1,470) from July 4.
Though it might give the impression odd for a smartphone manufacturer to be producing such accessories, Xiaomi makes nill on its smartphones (that’s how they’re so reasonably priced), but as an alternative generates profits from its software ecosystem and its broad series of gadgets, which comprises TVs, headphones, toothbrushes, air purifiers, drones and much more.
Despite the fact that I find it hard to believe that consumers would go to a company well-known predominately for smartphones to purchase an electric scooter, Xiaomi has a much better name in China than it does in the West. What’s new, Xiaomi has already launched a scooter product earlier — it must make economic sense for the corporation to follow a sequel.
