At our 4th of July party, I tested out a new projector from 3M.  It’s incredible!  Small, light and ran off my iPhone!  Our guests for the party included my daughter’s “bff” and her mom.  They are our Disney World travel buddies, so it was the perfect opportunity to show our pictures from the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration.  I also very quickly and easily added in pictures of each family that came to the party.  We had gone camping with one family and another were neighbors that throw a neighborhood party every year.

Friends and family staring at the wall. Hehehe, sorry, the flash washed out the image, they are actually watching a slideshow.

All I had to do to create a slideshow with pictures for our past shared experiences between our family and the guests at the party was to create a special folder and then sync it to my iPhone.  Plug it into the 3M Mobile Projector, turn it on, adjust the angle.  Voila!  Quick, easy and fun!  All my favorite things, LOL.  The battery has a two hour life, so you can go cordless.  If you can tie down your kids and company ,  I mean if you have something that lasts more than two hours, you can use an AC adapter.  I used mine with my iPhone, but it connects to Apple® iOS devices, including iPod®, iPad® and iPhone®.

The 3M Mobile Projector is resting on a business card holder. That’s how small it is!

Just a phone and the 3M Mobile Projector – ready to go!

That’s the projector on the bottom, my phone, and my business card. Isn’t the projector amazingly small?! It’s 5.9 x 2.5 x 1.2 inches and only weighs 10.4 ounces!

There is so much you can do with this 3M Mobile Projector if you have the time and inclination, but what amazed me was how much you do with it, without spending hardly any time at all.  Accessories are available to project the images on to a screen, but I was able to just use a wall.

This projector would be perfect for a kids movie night!  We tried it on a garage door and it worked great!  We don’t have a Netflix subscription, but I also read that you can use the 3M Mobile Projector to watch your favorite movies.

Sorry, poor quality photo, but this is a projection on our garage door from that little 3M Mobile Projector!

The feature that struck me most was the size.  It only weighs 10.4 ounces!  That’s less than 2 iPhones.  The dimensions are 5.9 x 2.5 x 1.2.  Other projectors I’ve seen have been the size and weight of several large books.  The 3M Mobile Projector could very easily fit in a purse or laptop bag.

The 3M Mobile Projector has a 32 lumens rating, which is a measure of brightness.  The picture is very clear in a darkened room, or outside after dark.

The kids loved seeing their images projected in a huge, clear picture on the garage door!  If you are an outdoor family, you would love the 3M Mobile Projector.  I could imagine all the uses when you go on a camping trip.  Those rainy times, you could project a movie on the tent wall!  Or at night sitting around the campfire… play a scary movie.  The next family reunion pull out the 3M Mobile Projector and run a slide show of the last reunion.  People love seeing pictures of themselves :)

The 3M Mobile Projector is available at Target.com, Amazon.com, Walmart.com, BestBuy.com,Drugstore.com, KMart.com and Sears.com.
