Providing unique functionality that will change the way we think about digital experiences, KEECKER is the first connected computer for lifestyle and entertainment that will transform how we share and experience rich content at home.  

Equipped with a powerful video projection and 360 degree audio and video capture system, KEECKER allows you to project movies, listen to music, browse the web, make video calls, play video games and even transform your home, all through your smartphone.

"Creating a new dimension between technology, entertainment and our imagination, KEECKER merges the physical and digital worlds for the first time," said Pierre Lebeau, CEO and founder of KEECKER.

Truly wirefree and mobile, KEECKER rolls alongside you using its advanced motorized wheels. Moving beyond entertainment as we know it, KEECKER transforms any room into an entertainment arena and any surface into an immersive screen. Freed from its "container", content can be projected anywhere, whether its traditional entertainment, video, photos, interior decoration or beyond.

While many devices such as computers and smartphones are solely for personal use, KEECKER enables you to share experiences at home, bringing you and your family closer together.

Using KEECKER, you can turn your home into your imagination. Interested in taking a dive into the Milky Way or bringing your children under the sea in the comfort of your own home? Want to draw monumental artwork on your walls or create pop up interior design just for a night? Whether you want to walk through your house Skyping with a friend in Tokyo, wake up to a view of Tuscany on your bedroom wall or countless other dynamic scenarios, KEECKER can create that experience for you. 

KEECKER can also be used to check home analytics (temperature, humidity, sound level, light level, CO2 level and more) and for security purposes, so you can check on your home remotely from the road.  

From entertainment, games, web apps and home security to interior design creation, image and sound immersion, KEECKER can transform any room using your imagination. KEECKER makes the nightmare experience of connecting home systems to game consoles, ISP boxes and mobile devices as well as the unsightly cables and wires in every corner of the house a thing of the past.

Product Specs, Pricing & Availability:
KEECKER is 16 inches wide and 25 inches tall and is controlled via a free smartphone application (iOS, Android and Web). KEECKER plans to publish an open API so developers can push the boundaries and create apps that extend KEECKER's functionality and value-add even further.

KEECKER's prototypes are white with final colors to be announced at launch. The device will come with one terabyte of local storage space, and be available in the $4,000-5,000 price range starting in Q4 2014. It will include the robot, free apps and its recharge base.

About KEECKER
KEECKER is a Paris-based company founded by ex-Googler Pierre Lebeau in 2012. Dedicated to making your life better through innovative technologies, KEECKER's connected robot is redefining the home entertainment and connected devices market.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...

By 2021, 500 million sensors are set to be deployed worldwide, nearly 40x as many as exist today. In order to scale fast and keep pace with industry growth, the team at Unacast turned to the public cloud to build the world's largest location data platform with optimal scalability, minimal DevOps, and maximum flexibility. Drawing from his experience with the Google Cloud Platform, VP of Engineering Andreas Heim will speak to the architecture of Unacast's platform and developer-focused processes.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...
Serveless Architectures brings the ability to independently scale, deploy and heal based on workloads and move away from monolithic designs. From the front-end, middle-ware and back-end layers, serverless workloads potentially have a larger security risk surface due to the many moving pieces. This talk will focus on key areas to consider for securing end to end, from dev to prod. We will discuss patterns for end to end TLS, session management, scaling to absorb attacks and mitigation techniques.
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...
