The next time you’ve got something in your phone that you need a group of people to see, instead of suffering panic sweats as each person passes your phone to another, whip out the Beam, a smart projector that fits in any light socket and turns any flat surface into a big screen.

It’s the brainchild of L.A.-based startup Beam Labs, serving as a network-connected, app-enabled pico projector that simply needs a light socket and your mobile device to work. Inside Beam is an Android-running CPU with a 1.3GHz dual-core processor, 8GB of built-in storage, two speakers, and an LED ring for typical light bulb use if you need that. It connects easily via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to smartphones, tablets, game controllers, and more. It can be controlled with Apple or Android devices, but its Android DNA lets it run any app available in the Google Play Store, which means streaming Netflix on the bathroom stall door can totally happen.
