My kitchen holds a treasure chest of children's cereals. Besides containing questionable nutritional value, they all have one important thing in common: a toy inside the box. Although we eat the sweet morsels, the real happiness comes from whatever free object hides at the bottom of that box. While using the 3M Streaming Projector powered by Roku, I was reminded of this. With a native resolution of 854 x 480, this handy pico projector is portable and offers a satisfactory picture, but the real prize is the Roku Streaming Stick tucked inside of it.

Setup

Like other pico projectors, this projector is compact in size (4.3" by 4.2" by 2.0"). However, the shape is somewhat rounded, reminding me of the kid-friendly digital cameras. The form is easy to handle and gives the projector a durable feel. Unlike the Brookstone HDMI Pocket Projector, I could easily pop it into my tote or even let my children handle it. I felt like we should be playing a game of hot potato with it in the backyard. It charges through a power adapter; however, you can leave the projector plugged into the wall while you use it. After charging, you are ready to connect the Roku Streaming Stick, which is included when you purchase the projector. This small stick is only 3 inches long, but it commands attention.

I have a question. Are there any projectors that are free standing, ie: uses a flash drive, doesn't need a computer or any other electronic devise?

Can I connect my Roku3 player to a digital projector to stream video? If so, how do I control the Roku player?
