BEM Kickstand HD Projector

Special to The Miami Herald

Like watching everything on a big screen? Here’s a way to take along a really big screen wherever you roam. The BEM Wireless Kickstand HD Projector is an ingeniously designed portable projector that swivels out of its own integrated combined handle, carrying case and a-frame stand — all in an 8.25-inch by 7.5-inch by 1.5-inch-deep package. The included remote control snaps into place magnetically over the lens to protect the lens when not in use and also to keep the remote from going missing. The Kickstand can project an image onto a surface (such as a wall) as close as one foot or as far away as 10 feet. You get 720p HD video output; resolution is a respectable 1,280 by 800 — not at all bad for the diminutive size, and the background buzz sound is quite low. The projector has HDMI and USB inputs and a 3.5mm auxiliary out jack. Included are a 3.5 mm cable, HDMI cable, wall power adaptor and soft carry case. There’s a decent built-in mono speaker, but you’ll get louder, more dramatic sound by hooking up to your laptop’s stereo speakers.

BEM Wireless Kickstand HD Projector is $499.99 at www.bemwireless.com.
