Hey all here's what I'm going for...

Walk into conference room, start wifi hotspot on my phone and plug some type of dongle (chromecast/AllCast, etc..) into the back of the projector. Then I would connect my Note 10.1 2014 to the dongle and be able to mirror my screen to give presentations.

Has anyone tried this? Any creative solutions?

Miracast devices can do exactly this with wifi direct, so the hot spot isn't actually necessary to screen share. The only downside is that they are HDMI output, so projector compatibility is limited when dealing with older units.

Ah thank you! I looked into miracast and that is exactly what I was looking for. So the Note 2014 is miracast compatible?

Also, do you know of any cheap stick-like miracast dongles? I found this http://lettouch.com/rockchip-miracas...ice-p-988.html.

Edit: do they all require an external power source like http://www.focalprice.com/EH0360B/Hi...=EN_BFDproduct this?

You can also use MirrorOp. MirrorOp

I am using it at school for presentations. The sender software is on my Note 10.1 and the FREE receiver is on the PC which is connected to the OHP. The sender is only $10 and you can get it on the Play Store. Works over WiFi.

Note: Get the Galaxy version NOT the general android version as I have tried both and the Galaxy version works much better.
