If you’re a little annoyed by the fact that your swanky projector system can only display videos that you have saved on a HDD or portable drive, then the new 3M Streaming Projector should definitely be at the top of your list this holiday season. Like its name suggests, the projector is designed to stream videos over the internet through a Wi-Fi connection and a Roku Streaming Stick. The pint sized projector is designed to stream content from hundreds of channels while also providing users the option of streaming pay per view movies virtually anywhere within the range of a Wi-Fi connection.
Wi-Fi connectivity, of course, also allows the device to connect to PCs, tablet computers and even smartphones which makes beaming content from offline sources a lot easier as well. The 3M Streaming Projector is designed to be uber portable and stands just 120” long diagonally which makes it the perfect companion for movie nights, backyard parties, sleepovers and watching sports games with friends. But, like all good things known to man, the 3M Streaming Projector too has one serious drawback and sadly it is something that could ruin the experience for all involved if it isn’t addressed beforehand.
The projector comes with a battery that lasts just two hours and forty five minutes and could prove to be the ultimate bummer when it leads to the device dying out just before a movie is about to end or interrupts a big game. For folks who plan on always using the 3M Streaming Projector near an electrical outlet, the device retails for $299 a pop and is available on pre-order.
