Nothing matches the experience of playing video games and watching HD movies as they’re projected on your living room wall. Normal projectors are big and heavy and you want to put it aside as soon as you’re done using them. Cutting-edge technology has allowed projectors to get smaller and lighter, and the new models are the size of a laptop or even smartphone, and ones that even fits in your (large) pocket. This portability allows you to set one up outside for summer movie nights, or bring it to a friend’s house for some gaming.
Beam can turn any surface into a big smart screen, allowing you to do whatever you want. Screw Beam into any existing light socket or use the included power cable to place it on a flat surface. You can place beam above your dining table and play some games with your buddies. Use it in the kitchen to help you cook that delicious recipe, and the great thing is that it runs any app available. Beam is always on and connected with the Internet. You can set it up to start any app you want the moment you need it. Watch a movie on Netflix, Amazon or YouTube, check your Facebook or Instagram notifications or even listen to music with your favorite music app. Beam is designed in a way that it becomes a part of your interior. The most interesting feature is you can tell Beam to do what you want it to do when something you define happens. Like: Play a YouTube movie to wake you up or update you with the latest news and weather forecast of the day. Beam is the smart projector that fits in any light socket and you can easily connect any smart device with it.

It is a Bluetooth boombox but it is also a projector which makes it an all-in-one battery-operated solution if you want to have a backyard movie night or superbowl up on the garage door. It was a Kickstarter project but you can now order one yourself. The question is how well does it perform, how good does it sound and how bright is the picture that’s what we’re going to answer for you here. One of the most impressive things about the Flicks is its connectivity. You’ll see there’s an HDMI port right up front and you can connect nearly anything with that, including a Roku streaming stick, a fire TV stick or a chromecast. The USB port feature in the projector not only charges various devices but it allows you to power those streaming sticks so you can throw pretty much any streaming service up on this projector in your backyard so long as you have Wi-Fi. There is an auxiliary input with a 3.5 millimeter jack in case you need it and there’s a headphone output which you can use as a line out for another speaker system if you wanted to. To focus the projector you’ve got a pretty slim amount adjustment on the front where you just turn the round dial to kind of sharpen things up. Onboard controls are pretty simple although you do have separate power buttons for movie mode where it actually activates the projector or just Bluetooth speaker mode where all you’re going to do is play music .This is also how you would make any adjustments to the brightness contrast and volume of the speaker itself. Flicks also comes with a simple card style remote which will let you power on the projector or adjust the volume of the Bluetooth speaker. As for sound quality, not sure if any other projector that sounds anywhere near as good as this does, that’s because it’s actually a Bluetooth speaker – a fully-fledged Bluetooth speaker. It’s definitely more than enough to get the job done for a backyard movie party.
