Projectors have a wide range of uses such as for streaming movies, playing video games, watching YouTube/sports, etc. and streaming music. For the purposes of this challenge, think about a projector in the context of an in-home environment.

Imagine you are in the market for a personal-use projector. When you get to the store you start to skim over the options and come across one such option that comes with a free companion app.

A companion app is an app that lets you control and set up a device (in this case the projector) easily and enables you to make the most out of your device.

For this projector, all you have to do is download the app on your phone or tablet and you’ll be able to control the projector right from your device. We want to know what features and functionality this app has that would make you purchase this projector over the others!

  1. What is a feature or functionality for a projector companion app that does not exist today that would inspire you to purchase that specific device?

    • This should be something both useful in every day life and also something that inspires you to actually engage with your projector! 
  2. Do you have a favorite companion app that goes along with hardware that you own?

    • Please tell us about this app, what features it has and what you like about it.
