Cinemin Swivel – Portable, posable pocket projector

Image

The cutely named Cinemin Swivel is one of these new pico projectors. It’s a small DLP projector that can produce a 1.5m image from about 2m away or a floor-to-ceiling image across a typical room, whatever that is. This isn’t a big game projector, it’s more about showing pics to Grandma or plugging in your iPhone to share a movie with the bloke next to you on the plane. Its LED lightsource has a 1000:1 contrast ratio, pumps out 8 ANSI lumens at 480 x 320 and is rated to 20,000 hours.

It’s powered by an internal, replaceable rechargeable battery that will last a bit over 2 hours and fully recharges in 3, and it can run on AC. It’s designed for iPods but you can also plug in RCA video and audio via 3.5mm AV jack for playback via it’s internal mono speaker. It’s not available yet, but they’re taking preorders now. US$299 from WowWee.

The pocketsize multimedia pico projector that makes it amazingly simple to show and share your movies, videos, photos, games, and slides with friends anytime, anywhere. Perfect for small groups and small rooms – out and about – and where TVs can’t go.
