Last week amidst the excitement of the presidential election, it was easy to miss a bit of interesting and potentially exciting news about a very small, portable and much more affordable projector available.
David Pogue, the technology guru of the New York Times featured this new Optoma Pico Projector which retails for just $430 and is about the size of a cell phone - and runs on batteries doing away with the need for a noisy generator or electrical outlet!
This is not going to project HD quality video from hundreds of feet away, but it will allow for a dozen or so people to sit around and watch your human rights media without having to squint at your computer screen.
We get a lot of questions about affordable options for projectors from individuals and groups we train. This is an affordable and inconspicuous option for people who are doing community level screenings all over the world. I haven't had a chance to try one out or talk to anyone who has used one, if anyone has- please let us know what you think.
