Projectors have come a long way since the days they were rolled into the classroom on metal carts and used to transcribe endless pages of notes. These days they’re smaller, lighter and more portable than ever. They’re also way more fun! 

8 Fun Ways to Use a Movie Projector

Outdoor family movie night

To use a projector you really just need a solid, light-colored wall or even a tightly pulled sheet. This makes them perfect for movie nights under the stars. Better than a drive-in theater and you don’t have to worry about popcorn in the backseat.  Through USB or HDMI connections, micro SD cards, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or Google Play apps, users can access and project virtually any content, anywhere with the ZTE SPRO2.

Paint a mural

No artistic talent? No problem. Just project a black and white image onto a wall, trace the lines and fill in the mural with paint. The ZTE SPRO2 projects up to 120 inches with 720p HD resolution. That’s 10 feet! 

Go big on gaming

Gaming on a big screen is taken to a whole new level when it’s projected to life-size proportions. Projectors like the ZTE SPRO2 features an HDMI input that works with popular gaming consoles.

Set the scene at your next party

Project an animated Santa or a toasty fireplace at your next Christmas party. Or spook the neighborhood with a cackling witch on Halloween. Write a sweet message for Valentine’s day. Or just keep the kids entertained with a continuous loop of an aquarium.

Showcase life-sized memories

Use your projector to turn photos of your family, your travels or even your pets into a life-sized digital photo display at parties and weddings.

Create a Shadow Puppet Theater

Perfect the art of shadow puppeteering with your children. They’ll be sure to squeal in delight as you teach them to turn their hands into age-old favorites.

Use it as a learning tool

Kids will love learning the alphabet, sight words, numbers, their name or shapes on a projector. Project the lesson onto a whiteboard and let them trace, color and tag.

Pitch Perfect

Something tells me your next Karaoke party is about to be the best one yet when everyone in the yard (and maybe across the street) can see the words to sing along to Sweet Caroline.

The ZTE SPRO2 is a portable smart projector that features a built-in 5-inch Android touchscreen, battery, and a variety of connection options that allow families to project almost anything from just about anywhere. Fun for the whole family, this would also be the perfect gift for the father who has everything.
