 This Optoma Projector is an ultra portable projector with integral DVD player and sound system. It transforms any wall into the ultimate viewing experience with huge widescreen images dwarfing the largest 'Big Screen' TV's.

With no setup or cabling required, this projector is perfect sharing throughout the school, switching from individual classroom use to school-wide events. You can project movies with the built-in DVD player, play power point presentations or create slideshows with the included software.

We'd also like to give a big round of applause to all of our finalists. Coming in a close second and third were Ceiling Crash and Suicide Computer, with 23% and 20% respective.
