HypnosEye: The World's First Ironic Projector

You know those faux-retro plastic cameras? The ones skinny people in skinny jeans use to take pictures of themselves dancing, or looking very serious, but not really? This is that, as a projector.

The HypnosEye throws up a few red flags right out of the gates: Instead of connecting to your iPod or iPhone's dock connector of video-out, it simply magnifies your screen, like your maths teacher's old overhead projector. This means it'll project almost anything portable with a screen, which is fantastic! This also means that, since the only light source is the backlight on your device's screen — this thing isn't even powered — that the image quality shown above is probably pretty close to accurate. Charming incapability: in!

The HypnosEye can be imported for about $US80, which isn't a terrible deal, assuming you'll be doing most of your projecting in perfect blackness. Stuck inside a white-satin-lined coffin, buried unusually deep, at night? Get the HypnosEye! Happen to be on the dark side of the moon during at the beginning of its cycle, in a tent, with a projector screen handy? Get the HypnosEye! Etc. [Technabob]
