iPhone Micro Projector


"I said be careful his iPhone is really a movie theater."


Or something like that.


Can your phone case show movies?


Didn't think so.


From the website:


Sanwa 400-PRJ011 iPhone 4/4S Micro Projector

This might look at first glance like a regular cover for your iPhone 4 or 4S.

But Sanwa here have done something very clever, creating a slim DLP micro projector that slips onto your phone almost without being noticeable.

Not just a fancy decorative gimmick, the 400-PRJ011 comes with a 2,100mAh battery, which charges in around five hours and then gives you 2.5 hours of projector usage time.

The projector itself has a 640x360 resolution and weighs in at a compact and light 103g (3.6 oz).

Though it might be compact and highly practical, Sanwa haven't sacrificed smart functionality.

The projected screen size can go up 65 inches with a range of nearly 3 meters.

Plus, there are internal speakers and it can even become a charger for your iPhone once you turn the projector off, adding a cool 100% to your phone's battery life.


• Size: 63.5 x 126.6 x 22mm (2.5" x 5" x 0.9")
• Battery: 2,100mAh rich lithium battery
• Brightness: maximum 12 ANSI lumen
• Cable length: 76cm (29.9") (included)
• Range: 48.8-292.2cm (19.2-115")
• Life: LED, around 20,000 hours
• Charging time: around 5 hours
• Usage time: around 2.5 hours
• Works with iPhone 4/4S
• Resolution: 640 x 360
• Weight: 103g (3.6 oz)
• Screen size: 7-65"
• Contrast: 1000:1

Alas, sold out.

Why are we not surprised?

Watch the movie, thought that's small consolation, most likely.

Wait a sec ... what's that music I'm hearing?


Note added at 1:37 p.m. Saturday: "The manufacturer has them for 19,000 yen (about $250) here."

Thanks to my Los Angeles correspondent for doing what I pay my Crack Research Team®™© way too much to [not] do.
