    Every year I make this post and never go through with it. What I am looking for is a super small projector that I could watch a movie from a smart phone (iPhone or Samsung), iPad, or laptop if it has to be. Something small just for the kids to use in the evening down by the lake. I think every year I look at what is available and never really find that right device. Has anything new come along in the space?

    It just came to me, these are called pico projectors.

    I bought one for making presentations while traveling. Be especially aware of the light output. Mine was rated at 120 lumens IIRC but it was actually much dimmer in my opinion, and if throwing an image more than 4 or 5 feet the room needed to be nearly completely dark to be usable.

    Yeap, and that still seems to be the issue, low rez, low light levels. I guess we expect a lot from a tiny and cheap projector, but I want what I want.
