The issue with projectors really is the fan and required air-flow so the 
bulb doesn't burn out.  Projectors are great for presentations and light 
shows, but are otherwise a hassle.

I would throw in some money for a project to wire some flatpanels around 
the "Great Seal of Noisebridge".  Now that it's mounted on that 
sheetrock, we can easily wire all sorts of stuff behind it and around it.

How much for the parts to make some of these:
