This mini projector is built on Google’s Android operating system and comes with integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, allowing flexible, handy and effective wireless, sharing of media as well as documents streamed over the Internet. The ButterStream W2 has a lightweight and compact footprint and has the capability to project an image size of up to 120 inches, which is pretty impressive. From what can be seen of the device, it comes with a concise design with a brushed metal finish and a couple of connectivity options, along the sides.
