Smart Phone as a projector

Need to make a presentation and don’t have a projector? Have a large screen display TV and a Smart Phone? On the move, travel a lot and can’t carry a large amount of weight or computer equipment because of travel weight restrictions. Maybe you’re at home and don’t feel like being chained to your desktop computer or computer room, try Google Chromecast. The Google Chromecast HDMI dongle fits right into the back of the TV’s HDMI port and instantly turns your TV into an internet ready large screen display using your` mobile device; tested with an Android device.

Google Chromecast Dongle

The Chromecast costs about $40 USD and comes with the Chromecast HDMI dongle, HDMI extension and power source (micro-usb end). Unlike some mobile ready TVs, Chromecast requires you to download the Google Chromecast App from the Google Play Store to help setup and use the device. This part can be a little tricky. Chromecast is connected to the Internet through your WIFI. When idle, a picturesque graphic and photo art show periodically appears as wallpaper on the TV screen with other interesting information.
