Tiny projectors?

Tue Jul 16, 2013 10:26 am

I am a complete ignoramus on hardware, so please excuse if this query is naive. Does there exist a tiny projector that could be used with the Raspberry Pi? Say, pluggable to the hdmi port and usable independently of the OS - I use RISC OS. Monitors are the least portable part of my set up; to be able to use a blank wall anywhere would be a great step forward in utility.

They would come at a price but yes pretty much anything that accepts HDMI input will work an example not tested just a google on Projector HDMI http://www.brookstone.com/hdmi-pocket-p ... MgodOzQA_w

@malakai not any projector will work... you need to have the right driver.

If it's HDMI it should be plug and play. No driver needed.
