I am always looking for creative new ways to get my kids to spend time outside and my latest favorite parenting hack is the ZTE SPRO 2 Wireless Smart DLP Projector. The ZTE SPRO 2 Wireless Smart DLP Projector is a “smart” Android powered device with a 5″ touchscreen that allows you to project movies, YouTube videos, presentations – just about anything – onto a vertical surface such as a wall, screen, garage door, etc. It has a built-in battery (rechargeable) with 2-1/2 hours of projection time with 720p HD resolution. You can even attach a gaming system to the projector via the HDMI connector and play your favorite video games larger than life!
Key product specs:
- 200 lumens brightness plus auto focus and auto keystone correction
- Projects up to 120 inches with full 720p HD resolution
- The 6300 mAh internal battery powers about 2.5 hours of projection time or up to 16 hours of connectivity time
- External connections for HDMI, USB, 64GB Micro SD card & Bluetooth
- Includes 16GB of internal storage
- Android 4.4.4 OS and access to the Google Play Store
- Compact size measuring 5.3” x 5.2” x 1.2” and weighing 19.4 oz.
The Android touchscreen works just like your smartphone with access to the Google Play Store and your favorite apps including Netflix, and Amazon Video.
You can even surf the web, so of course I had to pull up my blog, the kids got a kick out of seeing it HUGE on the garage door (as did I).
The interface is super familiar since it’s Android you simply cue up the movie you want to watch.
Then select the icon that brings up the small menu to turn the projector on or off and set brightness and focus.
I was super excited to give this a try, I really felt like it could change how we enjoy movies, getting us outside and not only enjoying fresh air, but inviting over friends and neighbors to create some great summer memories for the kids.
You can project the ZTE SPRO 2 Wireless Smart DLP Projector onto a wall inside for a big screen experience, but our favorite thing to do is to watch movies in the driveway projected onto the garage door. I was concerned that our grey door would affect the picture, but we were able to view it just fine.
Even before the sun had set, we started watching, but it was amazing once the sun went down!
The sound was great but we connect a wireless speaker to the projector via Bluetooth for even more volume.
I can’t even imagine saying anything less than positive about the ZTE SPRO 2 Wireless Smart DLP Projector. It is super portable and even comes with a carrying bag that fits the projector and the charging cord. The interface is familiar and easy to use. The picture is great, even on a bumpy grey garage door. I can project ANYTHING I can access through Android which makes it super versatile for work or play. You can connect to Wi-Fi to stream your movies from popular services like Netflix, or you can save movies to an SD card or the internal memory for on-the-go when you don’t have access to Wi-Fi.
I can’t wait to spend our summer evenings enjoying movies outside this summer!
