My Fortune to Review Excelvan Q2
Yesterday, the day of reviewing the Q2 projector was both Bad and Good Day for me! I am saying this because of two different incidents that happened to me on the same day. One of them decreases my blood pressure due to worry, and other increased my blood pressure due to happiness.
Hence to make my both of the yesterday’s experience clear to you let me start with an incident of the morning. I was in a way to the market to purchase some groceries for the home needs. In the meantime, during my ride right in front of me, there is another biker who met with a brutal accident.
I saw everything happened with him with my eyes. The hit was so sudden that I cannot exactly say who the main culprit was. The biker and the car driver those who collided with each other while coming towards each other from a different direction.
But I am having one complaint against the biker who faced many damages. It is the fact that the biker was not wearing any protective riding gears like the most critical helmet. As it can help the biker to avoid much of the injuries happened on the body.
How Did I See a Toy Projector?
After that accident we all commuters nearby he stopped and ran towards to get some help for them. The biker is not in good condition. Also, the car driver is worried about the damages happened on his car.
There is a person on a jeep with his family who had shared his water bottle to offer some water for both the colliders. And someone has also called the ambulance for further medical aid. By the way, the biker is in good condition at the hospital as of now. Hence it was a horrible experience for me seeing someone in trouble.
At the same location, I saw the child of that jeep driver ran towards him and asked about the same incident. The man lifts him on his hands and gets back to his jeep to avoid his child to indulge in it. But luckily I saw a toy in the hands of his child. It is looking like some projector model.
I went to him to return his water bottle and do not spend much time introducing myself in front of him and finally asked about that toy. Finally, I came to know that it is Excelvan Q2 projector. I knew the fact that something is exciting behind that toy and finally, I got something good to know about after seeing that accident.
How Do I Get to Know about Q2 Projector?
Further, I showed my interest to review his Q2 toy projector device if he will allow me for the same hence I can write a review post on the same. At that time he just smiled at me and asked for my contact number and said that he would call me one day for the same.
I thought to have fewer chances to get the opportunity to review his cute little projector. However, yesterday itself in the evening I got his call, and he shared his address with me and invited me to his house to review his portable Q2 projector. Therefore, at last, I took the benefit of this opportunity and tried to uncover details about the same that I am going to share with you up next.
