Now you can go outside AND watch TV.
TVs are great and all, but they can be limiting because they’re usually found indoors. If you like sitting outside but you also like watching TV and movies, you might think those things are irreconcilable. In fact they’re not. With a projector, any flat surface can become a screen, from the side of your house to a low-cost projector screen. You can use a projector inside, too, to turn any wall into a massive display. Better yet, they’re on sale, thanks to Amazon’s Deal of the Day that focuses on Anker Nebula projectors.
Nebula Mars II Portable Projector is 36% Off
This compact machine is a fantastic portable projector. It has an adorable GameCube-like handle, and it can send out a bright 300 ANSI lm image at 1280×720 resolution. You can connect nearly any source to it, including a USB drive, TV box or stick, game console, smartphone, or tablet. Seriously, even at $500, this is one of the best portable projectors on the market. At this price, it’s a steal.
Nebula Capsule Portable Mini Projector is 36% Off
An even more portable projector, the Nebula Capsule is the size of a pop can, but it can project a detailed picture up to 100 inches big, which is a lot bigger than most TVs. It has a 360-degree speaker, so everyone can hear it no matter where they’re sitting. And a single charge lasts up to four hours, so you can bring it with you and watch Avengers: Endgame without running out of juice.
ViewSonic 4K Projector with HDR is 18% Off
For those who want a 4K HDR picture, you’ll need to spend a bit more money and go with a non-portable projector. With that said, Amazon has this 4K projector from ViewSonic on sale for $200 off right now. It produces a super-bright image that’s viewable in almost any environment.
To go along with your projector, you might want a projector screen that was designed specifically to make the video look as good as possible either indoors our out. Here are some affordable screens.
