My family is big on Christmas movies. We always made a big deal out of it when I was a kid.
Even as an adult I enjoy being able to go home for the holidays to watch some of the heart-warming classics — Die Hard, Home Alone and Batman Returns.
My love of a good, bloody holiday flick may not have changed, but my tolerance for excruciating summer heat definitely has.
It’s difficult to relax in a lounge room that now doubles as an oven. The last thing I want is to watch Hans Gruber plummet from the Nakatomi plaza whilst marinating in my own sweat.
Thankfully, I don’t have to compromise. I can take my cinephilia to the streets with the ASUS S1 Projector.
With three hours of battery life, you can project this ultra-portable bad boy onto any decently-sized flat surface. And because it’s a short-throw projector, you only need a metre of space to take advantage of the bright, 41-inch diagonal display.
This pocket sized projector will completely transform your summer BBQs and pool parties. With its integrated SonicMaster Speaker and HDMI output, you can project almost anything you please.
Want to watch the Boxing Day Test Match whilst frying up some snags in the backyard? You can do that. How about streaming a 90s MegaMix Playlist on YouTube? You can be that person.
If that isn’t enough, the S1 also doubles as a power bank, so you can stay connected and continue taking your summer selfies no matter where you are.
And when a gentle evening breeze finally offers some respite from the heat, it’s easy to head back inside and plug the projector in. Now you’re ready for a relationship-ending Mario Kart tournament or some Netflix and Chill time.
