If you’re missing the days of slide projectors and arts and crafts, the MacGyvers at Photojojo have a project for you. A quick trip to the dollar store will get you all the tools you need to turn your smartphone into a projector.
Photojojo’s recipe calls for a shoebox, paperclip, magnifying glass, X-acto knife, black tape and matte black paint.
After mounting the magnifying glass’s lens on the shoebox and sealing the gaps with tape, your smartphone images are ready for the big screen.
Lock your phone's rotation so you can flip it, turn the brightness up to full blast and play with your device’s placement in the shoebox and distance from the wall for the best focus.
Now you’re ready to set your photo app to slide show mode and enjoy the show.
