What I'd like to see is an array of relatively small relatively narrow beams arrayed to make a nice spread. I think it could be done reasonably with a dozen LEDs (2x6 pattern or something). I imagine...

It used to be that any LED lighting that put out much light was expensive, that's no longer true. I figure a cutoff will come along sometime.

A projector is deeper than I can easily fit.
