DroidBeam projector plays videos, surfs the web


Every summer we have at least one poolside movie night. I  set up a digital video projector, mix a batch of margaritas and we watch some silly romcom while floating in the darkness.

Movie night would be even better if I had the DroidBeam II projector sold by Chinavasion, a Hong Kong-based web retailer and distributor that offers great prices on gadgets that don't happen to have familiar brand names.

The DBII has a bright 300-Lumens light source that can display an image up to 250 inches in diameter. That's way larger than any flat-screen TV. If I had a wall that big, I would invite the whole neighborhood over for movie night.

And the DBII can do a lot more than just show movies. It's more like a portable media center. It has a QuadCore CPU that runs Google Android OS and it has built-in WiFi. With that combination, you can stream movies, home videos and YouTube content or surf the web anywhere you can get AC power and a broadband signal.

Chinavasion's price for the DroidBeam II all is $320.77, including a 12-month warranty. You can see more gadgets at the Chinavasion website and keep up with the company @chinavasion on Twitter.
