Just because most theaters are closed doesn't mean you can't enjoy a social-distancing movie night in the comfort of your own backyard. BenQ has announced the release of its newest portable LED projector, the GS2. The projector comes equipped with a built-in media-streaming and screen-mirroring capabilities, as well as an integrated Bluetooth speaker, and also features WiFi, HDMI and USB-C connectivity. But perhaps most enticing of all, it's splash-proof and drop-proof up to 1.6 feet and can be used both inside and outdoors.
