The Projecteo is pretty frikkin’ awesome. It’s a teeny-tiny projector that throws an image from a little circle of film up onto the wall of a darkened room.
The interchangeable disks are loaded with cut-down 35mm film stock, and each one can fit on nine of your amazing Instagrams.
The ideas just keep on coming. An iPhone app (natch) is used to select your images, whereupon the circular selection is sent to the lab to be printed onto a single frame of film. This frame is then punched from the strip and slotted into its own Projecteo wheel. Phew.
Better still, it’s hackable:
Projecteo has been designed so you can disassemble it. This will not only make them easier to recycle but it means you can pull it open and see what’s going on inside.
There, you will find a super bright LED, capacitors and resistors, a switch, a decade counter and three batteries. Feel free to hack away! We can’t wait to see your creations.
Speechless? Me too, but I believe the words we’re both looking for are “Do want.” And a kit, including one wheel, is just a $25 Kickstarter pitch away. At that price it almost seems stupid not to buy one, and it appears that plenty of people agree. With still a month left to run, the Projecteo campaign has already blown past its $18,000 goal.
In fact, the only thing keeping me from pitching right this minute are the dismal memories of Kodak’s Disk cameras from the 1980s. Shiver.
