what is your opinion for the optoma 3D-XL convertor 2D to 3D ? Is a good solution alternatine to expensive 1080p3D projectors ?

Find it odd that special paint products like Screen Goo aren't mentioned in this article as an alternative to using standard house paints. Since it was designed as an alternative to physical projection screens, Screen Goo already takes into account issues regarding color, gain, smoothness.

It may be more expensive than regular paint, but we're talking about $200 versus $100.

i found this projector paint to be brilliant ,but i still feel a good quality screen is much better.

i still think a screen is better but you can get a 300 inch image with painting a screen
