Turn Your iPhone Into A Projector
Alright TBL’ers, ever wanted to project a movie from your iPhone onto the wall? Or maybe do a photo slide show or share a presentation at work? Well…you can. OK – so you have technically been able to turn your iPhone into a projector for awile now, but with the 2nd incarnation of the Mili Pico Projector (2) the process just got a whole lot better, faster, and quieter. Although it’s certainly a pricey accessory, there’s absolutely no doubt how much fun could be had with this! Just imagine, movie night wherever you are!
The projector itself is compact and really easy to set up, and the picture quality is really quite astonishing (much better in a dark room) from this little piece of kit. The projector works with a VGA resolution, so although you won’t get the same sharp detail that you would with your HD TV, the picture quality is still great. This isn’t a replacement for your TV anyway – it’s a tool for sharing what’s on your iPhone. Mili claim that you can project images up to 70-inches away, and you can, but you’ll get the best results from the unit when projecting something to around 40-inches. Not forgetting that the closer you project, the brighter the image will be.
So what’s better in the Mili Pico Projector 2? Several things:
- The unit is smaller – and lighter
- 2.5 hour battery life
- Fanless design for nearly silent operation
- While in use, it charges your phone with a 2800 mAh battery
Now we do realize that unless you need to do a lot of projecting for your work, the novelty value of this gadget might not exactly outweigh the hefty price tag, but if you’ve got the cash to splash this little accessory is the veritable equivalent of a cannonball. It’s huge.
