Toronto. Back on September 27th my friend George Dunbar suggested those who own a smartphone (most people) can now buy and make a projector. George wondered if we had heard of such a gadget. Short answer, no!
Since we are well into the digital age and most photographs are now taken with a smartphone, this project seems appropriate as a future historical item.
There is even a youtube video showing how the cardboard marvel from Luckies of London is assembled. Brightness and sharpness depend on the smartphone used. The room must be very dark and the distance from the project to screen adjusted to balance brightness and sharpness.
Of course, if you tend to the cheap side, youtube also shows you how to make it with a couple of old shoe boxes…
