HypnosEye, The Poor Man’s iPhone Projector

hypnoseye_iphone_projector

By David Ponce

While we’ve seen our fair share of projectors for the iPhone, all of them work by taking the device’s video feed, amplifying it and projecting it onto a surface. Not so for the HypnosEye. It simply uses a lens and a mirror to project images from your iPhone’s (or iPod touch, we suppose) screen directly to a projection screen. No amplification.

rather than use an ordinary mirror which would result in an unclear image, HypnosEye has implemented a special mirror with a reflection agent on top of the glass surface (rather than behind). As a result, you can show media from your portable device almost anywhere at anytime.

For the full specs, price and a video, keep reading.

    Neat, but $80? I don't see why you wouldn't just transfer the pictures to your computer. I mean I don't think someone would carry this around with them to just show people pictures.

    Right… I'm thinking they're thinking videos…

    haha I miss read… Instead of taking the data through a feed to display else were they are just mirroring the “images from your iPhone’s” as in what it is displaying.

    Wow, really? A first surface mirror? That sounds so exotic!

    Nice adaptation of something commonly used for tracing smaller images (say onto cakes) for the hi-tech world, I'm amazed nobody had tried this before…
