I was pretty surprised I made this happen given the low-end brightness output of most pico projectors. I managed to watch Breaking bad by projecting on the side of a house. Posted Image

The image size I measured at around 112 inches.

I used this projector from AAXA plus some HDMI cables I had on my own.

It made for a nice night of movie watching under the stars.

Nice!  I'm suprised that you were able to get a picture that size out of that PJ.  Is your house stucco or some other flat surface?

ya that surface is actually a whitewashed fence. The only way the image could come out so watchable. I was surprised by the image too since I know generally, picos are meant more for indoor use and not as giant a screen. I thought it was a cool accomplishment worth sharing. What projector do you usually run when doing backyard theater?
