Have a great photo that you would like to recreate on your phone? No problems, simply connect your device to the projector and away you go. Of course the portable projectors also come with USB-in and SD card slots too for greater accessibility.
Another great feature of current portable projectors such as the Pico Genie Polar, Periscope and the Qumi Q38 is that they have Android operating systems built in so that you can store all of your images directly to the device itself, keeping all of your artwork in one place.

Projectors have changed a lot over the years, portable projectors are now smaller and more powerful than ever, take the Pico Genie M550 Plus as an example, it is one of the most powerful portable projectors with an inbuilt battery boasting 650 Ansi lumens of brightness. A perfect choice for creating art in bright areas such as a conservatory.
A lot of the portable projectors such as the Pico Genie Periscope 2.0 or M550 Plus 2.0 have the ability to project small images and still remain in focus due to their increased focus range / limitless focus wheel (on the periscope). Please note, this feature has been confused with "short throw" projectors and has resulted in people purchasing the wrong type of projector for them. A short throw projector will project larger images from a shorter distance.
