Sega Toys Homestar Flux Planetarium Review
Space, the final frontier. And also a bit of a hassle to get to! Instead you can experience the wonders of a starry sky, without a telescope, in the comfort of your home with the Sega Toys Homestar Flux Planetarium.
The Flux comes nicely packaged with a box that can be kept and used for storage.
This unit is small and comes with a USB power cable and wall adapter. This is a great feature as it means the projector can be run from a portable powerbank, you’re not restricted to a wall outlet like the Original Homestar.
You get a couple of projection discs included and more are available to purchase. Slip the disc into the projector, power it up and a beautiful star field is displayed.
The Flux has a number of controls on the back, the star field can be set to rotate (don’t worry about noise, it’s got a very quiet motor), and you can have a shooting star occassionally appear to give life to the projection.
The Flux projection is strong and clear. I’ve found it works best on a flat surface without anything else on (so no pictures/photos/TVs). You’ll see in the review video below I used a flat ceiling and the results are brilliant.
If you’re in the market for a planetarium the Sega Toys Flux is well worth considering, especially as it has the option to expand your disc collection, albeit at a steep price.
