Projecteo Tiny Instagram Projector

A new, extremely tiny projector is looking to bring back the glory days of sharing all of your favorite pictures with friends and family via slideshow. This device, known as Projecteo, was funded within 24 hours of life launched on Kickstarter. The device uses 35mm slide film so you can project your favorite Instagram photos for the world to see.

Even though this device isn’t the first of its kind, it certainly is the quaintest and the most easily transportable. The device is literally no larger than a Gigapet while the retro spectacle style seems to perfectly compliment the hipster style of Instragram. Know how to buy followers on instagram.

The Projecteo was inspired by the “magical qualities” of the metaphors produced by ancient Rollei projectors and uses a powerful LED combined with a lens and focusing mechanism in order to project “excellent quality” metaphors up to 2.5-feet wide in a pitch black room. It goes without saying that the extremely small size and LED limitations mean that this device may have problems in rooms with ambient light.

The Projecteo takes wheels of 35mm slide film that are specially produced to control nine full color Instagram metaphors on each frame. In addition to that, a compatible iPhone app is used to select the metaphors from Instagram and arrange them in the circular cutter and placed in a plastic wheel that slots into the projector. Additional photo wheels are available, though you have to order them separately.

Using the device is also said to be very austere. All you have to do, allegedly, is turn the device on, twist the lens barrel to focus and spin the wheel to change the image. You can still fund the project on Kickstarter. A $25 pledge will get you the Projecteo, which is probable to ship in either December or January. A $40 pledge will grant you a Projecteo in Rollei P35 projector colors while a $350 pledge will allow you to work with designers to make a one-off color combination. Finally, there is a $5,000 pledge, which could also get you one of three gold-plated devices.
