Showing off photos on a phone can be so cold and, well, electronic. There was a certain charm to a classroom history lecture based on the click-click-click of a turning slide projector tour of ancient Greece. Meet nostalgia digitized with the Projecteo ($26), a tiny Instagram projector funded as a Kickstarter project.
Created by Mint Digital, the creative minds behind Foldable.me and Stickygram, the itty-bitty projector is made up of an LED light and three watch-size batteries to make sharing photos an analog snap. From the Projecteo website, users pick nine Instagram images to develop onto a piece of 35mm film, which is then cut into a perfect circle to fit inside the projector's corresponding mini reel, each of which is $9.
Like a classic slide projector, images are focused with a slight turn of the lens barrel, and the product's tiny size has no bearing on the quality of the projected photo since no digital worries like pixels are involved.
