Ensembl smart-lantern thing from Ashley Chloe

Their Words

The world’s first smart modular wirelessly charged home entertainment system, take your smart home anywhere with Ensembl by Ashley Chloe. A projector, sound system, smart light, 360-degree camera and powerful charger, Ensembl expands to fit your life, both inside and in the great outdoors. 

My Words

That's all I got. You know know as much as I do about the Ensembl. I don't really get it. Use it in the RV or tent to watch movies? 

I can tell you Ashley Chloe makes little gizmos for fashionistas, like a wearable cuff that hides a pair of Bluetooth headphones, and the "first modular headphones with limitless wearable forms. No word if Ensembl is small enough to wear around your neck.

Do I want it? Honestly, I might. I can maybe see it as a modern-day lantern that doubles as a projector and sound system. The camera seems gratuitous.

Will it make it? Yes, in a Hammacher Schlemmer  or SkyMall catalog.
