We've just renovated our kitchen and I've ended up with a nice one metre square white wall. I had a thought about a small ceiling-mounted projector which I could use to display various things on the wall - I'm thinking a clock display (including countdown timer), photos or recipes. It doesn't need to be capable of displaying video - I'm not going to be watching TV or movies on it.

 

Any thoughts? I'm not keen on spending thousands on a 4K movie/TV projector.

 

Thanks.

I got a haprun from amazon, relatively cheap and cheerful.   Def not a 4k UST.  might be a little big physically for your area.  But there's some of those really small portable ones that might fit the bill as well.

If you're expecting to do lots of hours in a kitchen environment, you might want to look into the cooling system. Kitchen air tends to be filthy when ingested in large enough quantities. Make sure that it's got a removable and washable filter - I don't think anyone does fanless projectors.
