Recently, I was given the opportunity to review a new toy, the 3M™ Mobile Projector. My whole family was excited to try this product. It's a small handheld projector that plugs into your iPhone, iPad or PC (PC connection requires an additional cable sold separately). It allows you to watch movies, photo slideshows, and YouTube videos anywhere.
When it arrived, the kids and I all had our own ideas on how to use it. In fairness, we decided try it together as a family. We grabbed some snacks and gathered in the boys' room to watch a photo slideshow of our recent Disney vacation.
It was a really fun way to view our vacation photos on the "big screen."
The kids were so excited when they realized now they can watch movies anywhere, even outside.
The boys are especially excited to use it at our first neighborhood summer bonfire. Instead of scary stories around the campfire, they're thinking scary movies in their tree fort.
My daughter is looking forward to the next power outage. She'll be the hero of the neighborhood when she invites the kids over for a movie in the dark.
My hubby likes the idea of using the cable adapter to connect it to the laptop.
They all have big ideas on how they are going to use this projector this summer.
However, so do I.
Here is what I am most excited about ...
As a professional Home Stylist, I often customize spaces with hand-painted murals and custom silhouettes. Up until now every time I wanted to do a project like this, I had to borrow a large overhead projector from our church.
Old school overhead projectors get very hot. They are big, heavy, awkward and hard to position in a small space. I never bought one of my own because I didn't have a place to store it.
I was so excited when I realized I'd never have deal with an old school projector ever again.
Now, I can carry my 3M projector in my purse.
Using my new 3M projector I can project a digital image from my laptop onto the wall to create custom murals quickly and easily. My job and my own home decorating projects just got so much easier.
I don't know who is more excited about this little gadget, me or the kids.
