Introduction: Make an IPod Video Projector

Project video and pictures on a screen using your iPod!


Step 1: The Setup

The idea is simple, Focus the light from your iPod onto a nearby screen by means of lenses and mirrors.

Step 2: Cardboard Is Underrated

Making prototypes is fast and easy using cardboard and a glue gun. A layer of black tape and that Apple sticker makes for a nice look.

Step 3: Lights Down

In order to see anything it must be dark in the room.

In today's day and age, where abouts can one get a lens setup like that? If nothing else, how could one improvise?
