Today, I have an incredibly fun new toy to tell you about. I recently had the privilege of trying out the 3M™ Mobile Projector, and I give it an enthusiastic five stars! This small, mobile projector allows you to watch YouTube videos, movies via iTunes, slideshow photos, TV content, presentations and more from your iPhone, iPad or iTouch. It even works with your PC with the purchase of an additional cable. To work the projector, all you have to do is pull up the content you want to watch on your device and then plug in the 3M Mobile Projector to your device, then hit play. It is seriously that simple. In the picture below you can see my boys are watching “Star Wars” on their ceiling. The projector does not need to be held and can stand on its own or with a tripod; however, Asher insisted on “controlling” the experience.
And just in case you are wondering, your room needs to be dark in order to achieve the best picture. Below is actually how dark their bedroom was during the “Star Wars” viewing. (I just messed with the manual settings on my camera to get a better picture for you in the low light.)
My boys are so excited to use our 3M Mobile Projector this summer! Camping, slumber parties, and family movie nights just became that much more fun. If your kiddos (or husband, ahem) are into gaming, the projector will connect to DVD and gaming consoles with an additional 3M Composite Cable. With the right cable, you can also project angry birds from your phone right onto your wall! Keep it in mind for Father’s Day, ladies.
I took the photo below of the “screen” while next to Asher in bed. We are a one TV household (gasp!) so watching movies in bed on a large screen is a real treat!
Once the boys were in bed, it was the adults’ turn to play with the new toy! Matt and I headed outdoors and watched an episode of Modern Family in our backyard on a sheet! What a fun mid-week date night.
