Roku and 3M have teamed up to offer consumers an affordable way to project movies inside and outside the house. All you need is a flat screen or suitable surface, a Wi-Fi connection, and the 3M Streaming Projector, which features an integrated Roku Streaming Stick.

Why is the 3M Streaming Projector Important?

The projector offers many advantages over previous consumer models. First off, it’s affordable. At $300, pretty much anyone can buy it. Second, the projector is small enough to fit in your hand. That means you can take it anywhere. Third, it actually offers good performance. It has 800X400 resolution, which is really close to DVD quality, and 60 lumens for a bright picture.

The 3M Projector is Build for On-the-Go Entertainment

Consumers who want to watch movies outside will like that 3M designed the projector for on-the-go entertainment. It has a lithium battery that will last 2 hours and 45 minutes on a full charge. That’s more than enough time to watch most movies. If you decide to pull a night of feature films (or you want to watch an entire series in an evening), you can use the AC adapter to draw power from any outlet.

The projector also has a built-in speaker. That’s right, you don’t even have to worry about hauling around a speaker set to watch your movie. Now, let’s be honest. The built-in speaker is not going to blow anyone away. But it’s very function for backyard parties. If you need a louder system, you can always plug external speakers into the projector’s minijack.

You can spend a lot more money on a projector that offers arguably better options. When it comes to home entertainment on a decent budget, though, it’s pretty hard to beat this. 3M and Roku have teamed up to make something that will certainly become a popular choice for families that enjoy watching the occasional movie outside or projecting on make-shift screens in the house.
