Super Easy Ipod Projector!!!!

Introduction: Super Easy Ipod Projector!!!!

 A fun instructable that you enjoy having.

Step 1: Materials

 -Small magnifying glass (clean)
 -oatmeal box
 -scissors
 -small mirror
 -ipod 
 - optional: metal tape, sharpie, Tv show on IPod.

Step 2: Cut Holes!

 Cut the top hole in proportion to your IPod.
The front hole is a tiny bit bigger than it is in the image, it lets the light from the mirror out.

Step 3: Place Materials

 Line up the mirror in the back and tape it down, you should be able to see a perfectly upside image in the mirror.
Now put the glass in front of the mirror and move it back and forth until you reach the desired focus.

Step 4: Setup

 Get in a very dark room for better results, turn the brightness on your ipod all the way up.

Step 5: Watch!!!

 I'm watching family guy.
Also, plug in your headphones so you can hear.
Have fun!

    hey guys, is there any one who tried to make this projector ?
    4 those of u who did, what is the certain space that i have to measure between the mirror and the lens ? and what's the right degree of the mirror ? i read that it must be 45* to get a good viewing angle and clear images
    however,good job 4 all of u who did it and worked, hope u answer me fast so i can make one 4 myself too :)

     yeah i'm sure it would work great if it has a really bright screen. the brighter it is the better image quality.
