All they did was take a pocket projector, and used an umbrella style pop up projection screen, then mounted the projector on the backside, rather than a normal projector... I thought of a similar idea when pocket projectors came out, but came to the same thoughts as your review... The reason they call it spud, is because it puts your graphics into potato mode, lol.
