These tiny devices fit in the palm of your hand and are great for home theater, presentations, and education, as well as other unique ways. With that in mind, let us show you our picks for the best mini projector, and you can clearly see what we mean.
VANKYO LEISURE 3 Mini Projector
The Vankyo Leisure 3 Portable Projector perfectly demonstrates that embracing the past isn’t always such a bad thing. It might not have the high-tech, futuristic designs of the other projectors we chose, although having real push buttons like this didn’t realize they were old-fashioned almost ten years ago, but still a very attractive prospect for anyone looking to improve their visualization game.
Powered by the MStar color engine, colors have never been so vibrant, and it’s the technology that was only released this year, which makes the Leisure 3 one of the most modern gear on the market. The color engine also delivers 60% more brightness than ever before, which is great news for everyone no matter what they want to use it for.
Plus, it’s nearly silent so you can play or watch in peace, without the fans humming, and there’s even a carry bag and tripod mount so you can carry it to all your friends and show off your brand new toy without worrying about damage.
