When I was little, my Pa-Pa had one of those old-fashioned movie cameras where the big bright light would shine in your face the entire time he was filming you. And one of our favorite activities was to get together with our cousins and watch all those old home movies projected on a big screen in my grandparents’ living room. It didn’t matter that there wasn’t any sound or that we were all constantly squinting, thanks to the big camera light, there wasn’t anything better than watching these little pieces of memories. And that’s why I’ve always taken so many videos of Caroline.
There are all these moments that you think you’ll remember forever, but they have a way of slipping away with time and the busy-ness of life. I’ve always thought it’s not quite as much fun to gather around the computer or TV to watch our videos. It lacks the special-occasion feel of the big screen that had a way of making me feel like a movie star when I was little. And I’ve secretly always lamented that Caroline hasn’t had the same experience.
Not that she’s much of a ham or anything.
But all that has changed with the new 3Mô Mobile Projector. It’s a small mobile projector that allows big-screen viewing of your content just about anywhere. It projects onto walls, ceilings, anything you can turn into a big screen. You can watch YouTube videos, slideshow photos, TV content and movies via iTunes.
I can’t wait to use it all summer long for slumber parties and outdoor campouts. The kids can all get in their sleeping bags and I can project a movie right on the side of our house. Or they can make their own home movies and have fun watching themselves. There are so many great uses.The 3M Projector easily connects to your iPhone or iPad or to your PC with an additional cable sold separately. When I got mine in the mail I was able to figure it out without even reading the directions. And if you know me then you know this means that a monkey could do it. It’s super easy.
It’s sold at Target (click here to learn more and find special offers) and, to celebrate the 3M projector, you’ll have a chance to win a $150 gift card to Target. All you have to do is leave a comment telling me your favorite way to do family movie night.
