Summer is a great season to spend extra time outside. With today’s technologies wouldn’t it be great to be able to watch a movie outside under the stars? Why do we have to watch everything inside or alone on our phones? Brookstone’s Wireless Mobile Projector is a great way to accomplish that movie night with friends and family.
The first thing that should be mentioned is buyer beware. The Brookstone Wireless Mobile Projector is not as wireless as you would think. The best part is that it has a battery and doesn’t require to be plugged in while working. However, one would hope that you could use your Iphone or Android wirelessly with the device. Unfortunately, the Iphone connects wirelessly only with the use of a Brookstone App. And the App only allows you to project your own personal movies and pictures. No Netflix. No Vudu. Just the pictures and personal videos. For you to connect your Iphone or Ipad to the projector you will need to buy an extra converter to allow your device to connect to an HDMI cable.
The projector lists as being more android friendly however there is a short list of what actually will end up working wirelessly with the projector. Make sure that your android has screen mirroring.
If you can get by the fact that the “wireless” doesn’t really work other than not requiring to be plugged in, you will have quite the nice projector to use outside.
The picture is excellent. The device is small, easily transportable, and not heavy. The battery lasts well also.
The projector does have 2 small speakers. They will provide some sound. Not much sound. And again, get another cable to connect a speaker.
All in all, the projector works great once you have something hooked up to it. It will allow you to watch movies and tv shows outside under the stars. You will just be better off expecting it to be a mostly wired experience as opposed to wireless.
