Epson Powerlite 1040 First Look

One trend I seem to be noticing is the neighborhood outdoor movie or football game party.  Why bring the meat to the TV bring the TV to the meat and setup a projector on the deck?  Epson’s Powerlite 1040 is small enough that you can even bring it with you on a trip. Let’s take a look at this projector.


What impressed me when I unboxed this projector was how light it was.  Setting it up with a screen outside with a fire and grill next to you should make this a comfortable experience. The included remote also makes it easy to control the projector while watching the game from the grill.

I am also looking forward to setting this up in my office as I work on this day before Thanksgiving enjoying some movies and YouTube video thanks to my Chromecast.


With the holiday’s coming up, there’s also one more thing you can do to make your holiday more festive.  Add AtmosCheer!  With AtmosCheer FX you can brighten your up coming holiday party or decorate your house with digital decorations.  I look forward to checking this out here at my house in more detail.
