As already mentioned, the Asus S1 is not only a projector, but also doubles up as a power bank. Turns out, reading the manual has its benefits. Hidden away in the 50 pages of the manual is a fun feature that turns the projector into a flash light or even a emergency light signal(strobe). This can be done by repeatedly pressing the Splendid key when the projector is in battery.
