Optoma PK-101 Pico Pocket Projector
Easy set up.
Small and compact.
Runs of batteries.
Decent video performance.
Amazingly small and pretty with it.
Shows dark scenes well.
Audio built in and not as horrific as expected.
Not a bad price for cutting-edge tech.
Crisp, bright display at distances up to about six feet.
Limited battery life.
No audio out jack.
Needs minor refinements.
Picture is woefully short of brightness, especially at larger image sizes.
Colors bleed occasionally.
Very limited video connectivity.
Needs a very dark room for best results.

This is the smallest projector I have seen; it is smaller than most mobile phones. However from two metres away it can display a bright clear image on any flat wall, in fact I even tried it on a ceiling but that would require you to be lying down on a...64
