The way most projectors are setup is that they’re mounted onto the ceiling or on a table while projecting the content forward towards a wall or a screen. It’s a system that works, but if you are looking for a projector that is able to go beyond that, then perhaps the Beam Kickstarter project may very well be a Kickstarter project worth your investment.

The Beam Kickstarter is for an Android-powered projector that has the ability to fit into the light socket of a standard light bulb, which basically means that if the housing is big enough, you should be able to fit the Beam projector in, thus allowing you to get creative with the way your content is being projected, such as in various interesting angles, or maybe projected onto the floor which could be a great way for promotions during events.

As far as resolution is concerned, this is where it is a tad disappointing as the Beam projector can only project a resolution of 854×480. It will come with Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, 8GB of storage, and a pair of 2-watt speakers built into it, so essentially you could use it as your own personal entertainment device, but like we said its low resolution is a bit of a let down.

There is also a bit of home automation included in the Beam projector through an IF-style app, for example it could be set so that at a certain time, it can show social media updates, launch YouTube, show the weather forecast, and more. It’s an interesting idea and if you’d like to contribute to its funding, head on over to its Kickstarter page for the details.
