this is how to make a portable Projector based on this website
In order to build this project, you will need:
- Handheld TV with A/V in socket
- Powerful "searchlight" style flashlight/torch (at least 1 million candle power)
- About one square meter of 3.2 mm hardboard
- About 5 meters of thin battening (the smaller and lighter the better)
- CPU or PSU fan
- 9V battery
- Switch for fan
- Handheld magnifying glass
- Plenty of screws
- Stong wood glue
Step 1: Step 1
Depending on the model, you may have to disconnect the speaker, antenna and controls in order to fully remove the case.
Step 2: Step2
After you have removed this, you should be able to see the back of the LCD panel. You should now be able to see through the transparent LCD panel (note the trees in the photo).
Step 3: Step3
Join the two halves into one solid frame.
Step 4: Step4
Put the batteries unit and control circuitry in place.
Things can get a little hot with the powerful spotlight, so attach the cooling fan on the bottom of the unit (this will just about spin up with a 9V battery). Note the fan on/off switch just to the left of the fan. Next, solidly attach the prepared TV to the end of the encased chamber. Make sure you get it the correct way up and the right way around to ensure the proper orientation of the final projected image ! (remember that the lens you add later will invert and mirror the image)
Adding a handle will make the projector easier to carry and point around.
Step 5: Step5
Take a square of hardboard and cut a circular hole a little smaller than the lens. Then place the lens in the hole.
Add another square, with a slightly bigger hole, to act as a spacer.
Add a final square, identical to the first to finish the hardboard sandwich. Then glue the three layers together with the lens in place.
Step 6: Step6
Then take your spotlight (the more powerful, the brighter the final image, but the more heat build up you will have to contend with)
Finally, attach the spotlight to the end of the encased cavity.
