This 'revolutionary' soda-can-sized projector is $70 off at Amazon, only 'til midnight

The beautiful spring weather is here, and your backyard is beckoning for an al fresco movie night. Screenings under the stars are always worth it, but it can be a pain getting all the gear outside before the popcorn is cold. Buying a portable-size projector can make things much easier, and Amazon is having a one-day sale on the soda-can-sized Anker Nebula Capule projector — it's $70 off!

This small but mighty device can project up to 100 inches (just over eight feet) onto a flat surface with 100 ANSI Lumens of brightness and just the right picture clarity for watching movies outdoors at night.

If you’re looking for 360-degree surround sound and high-quality picture clarity packed inside a small and compact unit, the Anker Nebula Capsule fits the bill. This little guy is less than five inches tall and weighs just one pound.

The projector may be small in size, but it's not small in strength — it can project up to 100 inches (just over eight feet) onto a flat surface with 100 ANSI Lumens of brightness and just the right picture clarity for watching movies outdoors at night. The digital projector also features HDMI and USB ports, so you can connect it to a Blu-ray player, a video game console, or a streaming device like a Fire TV Stick.

This Anker Nebula Capsule even has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, letting you stream and mirror your favorite movies, TV shows, and songs from your smartphone or laptop. This mini digital projector even runs on Android, so you can watch Netflix and YouTube out of the box. With up to 30 hours of battery life, you’ll have hours of entertainment in the palm of your hand.

Happy customers rave about everything from this projector's picture quality to its portable size. "This thing is tiny. It’s the size of a soda can. So I was skeptical that the images would be very good. Boy was I wrong!” wrote a five-star reviewer. “The sun hadn’t even gone down yet and we were playing it out on our terrace and the image was still bright and vibrant. The ability to download apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Plex is huge!”

A fellow fan called the Anker Nebula Capsule a "revolutionary product," adding that it "can work for hours on battery" and "has a very convenient and truly wireless setup."

Looking for something with a bit more power? The Nebula Capsule II projector is also on sale, today only.

This pint-sized projector has more than 5,000 apps to choose from.

"We're not a family that has the TV on 24/7 or likes one in our lounge, but we do enjoy a movie in the evening. This device is bloody perfect for that. You can just pull it out of a drawer, point it at the wall and cast or stream whatever you want. You definitely get better picture quality if you run a movie through the HDMI port, but it's just so easy to set up. Took five minutes to connect it to our internet and then five minutes each night to set up. The speaker is so much better than I would have expected, too... All in all, just a bit of a mind-blower for something that is the size of a can of beans," said one five-star reviewer.

Again, this sale is just for today. Grab a soda can-sized projector at a hefty discount while you still can!

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
