Near Wall Wide Angle Projector

Sony will be releasing a 4k projector called the 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector, later this year or sometime in the future. It's a very nice looking setup of having the projector built into a cabinet that sits right along the wall it's projecting on, freeing up walking space. The only problem is it will be $30,000-40,000. I'm curious to see if it's possible to build something that accomplishes the same setup with current projectors, being able to project a decent quality image at a large scale from only a foot away from the wall. 

Sure. Just look at any old rear projection TV.

That was a really good answer, I over thought it. An old rear projection tv might have all the basic parts to do it, mirrors and optics.
