With Roku onboard, you don’t need extra devices to start streaming your favorite shows and movies. It’s perfect for an outdoor movie night with the family!

Projectors are quite versatile in that they can be used to display a quality image on almost any surface, from a dedicated screen to a comparable and empty wall, you can create the perfect movie theater just about anywhere. Most include HDMI ports and options to plug in additional devices too, so you can stream from your favorite apps and services. However, Vankyo has taken that idea a step further and integrated the Roku platform into its latest projector, the Leisure 470. It’s a full-HD 1080P wireless mini projector, supporting a native resolution of 1280 by 720 up to 1920 by 1080. You can project a screen size ranging from 39 inches up to 250 inches, with projection distances between 4.27 and 26.57 feet respectively. In case you didn’t know already, 250 inches is an absolutely maddening and massive screen size.

It has WiFi built-in and will connect to Android and iOS devices so you can cast content from your phone to the projector — via a USB or Lightning cable. Moreover, it has USB, VGA, and HDMI video inputs so it will work with a wide range of entertainment devices, including game consoles and beyond. Integrated stereo speakers give you enough audio to listen in, so you don’t have to lug surround speakers with you into the backyard if that’s where you choose to watch. The projector does need to be plugged into a power source, but you can fix that if you want to go portable by using a portable power station or backup battery generator. That would allow you to watch movies out in the wild, like at a campsite or while off-roading during a trip. At the very least, you can set it up at home and you don’t need to plug in additional equipment to access streaming services — thanks Roku.
