    I'm a little to cheap to actually buy a smart projector. So I'm looking to use my tablet instead. Can anyone help me?

    Well, conditionally yes, but judging from the specs of the Nexus 7 - no.

    There are no wired outputs on the Nexus 7, as far as I can see from the tech specs page. However, there are a couple of tricks you can pull.

    * Some projectors are Bluetooth-compatible. The Nexus 7 has Bluetooth. You may be able to leverage the Bluetooth in order to get the Nexus 7 to display the image through the projector.

    * If the projector is connected to a full-fledged computer, you may be able to use a desktop extender app (such as the ScreenSlider app) or a remote login app (such as LogMeIn) to get output to the projector.

    Unfortunately, the Nexus 7 doesn't contain the hardware to output to a projector. Other Android tablets do. But it may also depend on what version of the Nexus you have

    Nexus Q is Google's new product that enables one to stream video from the Cloud via Google Play or YouTube to a device like a projector or TV. You can connect your Nexus wireless to the Nexus Q and select the movie or media from your Google Nexus Tablet PC. You can watch some YouTube clips that I have included below. Note however that Google has delayed the initial sales of the device for now.
