One of the coolest things about blogging is getting the opportunity to try new products. Last week I got a 3M™ Projector in the mail to try out, and my husband has officially dubbed it “the coolest thing you’ve ever gotten through blogging!”
Every Friday is Family Night, and this 3M™ Mobile Projector is going to be a regular part of our Friday nights from now on. This past Friday, I was at my sister’s house working on her laundry room re-do. While I was working I hooked up the 3M Projector to my iPhone and put it on the dresser in the guest room. The 3M Projector can be plugged into an outlet for power but it also holds up to a two-hour charge.
Adam and Eli watched a superhero cartoon on Netflix! My brother-in-law, Wayne, who is a super “techy” guy absolutely LOVED this projector!
I also took some pictures of the 3M Projector in my kitchen one night.
I told Luke to stand in front of the movie so you could tell how big it projected the movie on the wall.
I looked up “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” on YouTube for this picture. (Doesn’t that kid look like he is pointing his finger at Luke?)
What I love about this projector is that you can take it outside and use it while camping or hosting an outdoor movie night with friends.
Luke and I went outside and projected the movie on our shed.
It was actually darker outside than it looks in this picture. I was trying to shoot in “manual” mode to let in more light, and it caused everything to be blurry. But the movie wasn’t. It looked awesome! The boys cannot wait to have friends over to watch a movie outside.
For fun, Luke projected to movie on the back of our car. How cool is that?!
The 3M Projector works with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. You can watch YouTube videos, slideshow photos, TV or movies via iTunes.
With an additional cable, you can even use the 3M Projector with your PC.
This product is sold at Target, and there is an iTunes $25 Gift Card limited time promotion (included with the projector in specially marked packs). You can find out more by clicking here.
