HypnosEye Adds Projector Functionality To Your iPhone… Kinda

HypnosEye Projector and Screen Set (Images courtesy Japan Trend Shop)
By Andrew Liszewski

Jealous of all those new-fangled cellphones that come with built-in projectors these days? Well the HypnosEye will level the playing field. It seems to work like an overhead projector, using a mirror and lens to magnify and project the display from your cellphone onto a wall, ceiling or other surface. There’s no light source of its own, so you’ll need to set the brightness on your phone’s display as high as it can go for best results, which also means it will probably work better with devices with large LCDs like the iPhone, iPod Touch, Zune etc. Unfortunately though the $117 price tag from the Japan Trend Shop pushes this well out of the novelty purchase price range, particularly when the results as seen in the video I’ve included after the jump aren’t great.

    This seems better then the other projector that was mentioned on this site. I like the size.

    Me too. We all do. I just can't stop crying!

    The music!!! It's terrible! I also can't believe the price quoted here for the thing, since it looks like very basic plastic molding. Focusing by sliding the box manually? Hmm. They could at least have put a wheel or something in for doing that smoothly.

    Also, why in all the little previews does it show musical notes coming from the unit?
