The 3M MP180 Pocket Projector is one of the best new tech gadgets I’ve seen in quite some time. I have an iPhone that I use all the time, but after seeing what this device can do, I want this thing pretty bad. So, what makes the 3M MP180 Pocket Projector so special?
The first great feature of the 3M MP180 Pocket Projector is the fact that with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on the device, any individual trying to display a presentation at school, home, or in the workplace can access and download files over the internet with ease. The projector uses a touch screen so that the files that are being downloaded can be quickly accessed especially if you are in the middle of your presentation. The Bluetooth capabilities allow the user of the projector to use other Bluetooth devices that they own to transfer the content to and from the projector. Also, with the Wi-Fi, the projector can surf the web and allow for online videos to be displayed as if they were being seen on a desktop.
Probably the best feature of the projector is what it can actually support on the device. The 3M MP180 Pocket Projector can support Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Adobe PDF Reader. All of those tools can make a presentation run so much more smoothly and to have the ability to change your presentation and files on the go is a great thing. Also, the projector has 4 GB of internal memory and a microSD card so that there are endless possibilities of what you can take with you into a presentation.
The last two neat side features of the device are the Photo Enlarger and the Movie Projector. The Photo Enlarger could be used in situations such as a graduation slide show at home, or for those great memories at an anniversary for the parents. The Movie Projector basically speaks for itself. In the workplace it could be put to use for training videos for a new employee or to show a potential buyer why the product that you are trying to sell them is the perfect fit for what they need. At home, the Movie Projector can be used to watch your favorite movie or to keep the kids busy for a couple of hours while you are trying to complete tasks around the house.
In order to purchase a 3M MP180 Pocket Projector, one would have to go on the 3M website and select the projector to see what retailers have it available. When viewing the product on the website I noticed that the price for the projector ranged between $449-$555.95 depending on where the item is purchased. Even though the projector can be seen as a bit pricey for the everyday consumer, I believe that with all of its capabilities, it is well worth the buy.
