Useful iPhone Accessory: The Mini Projector
Have you been looking for a way to project your iPhone screen while you're at parties? Maybe you want to share things on the fly with your friends. Well, you should check out a mini projector.
A mini projector uses advanced lighting technology and has shrunk the humble projector down to iPhone size, which makes it a great accessory to have.
You can store it anywhere because of it's size, chuck it in your pocket with your phone or straight into your laptop bag. They're super light so you won't even notice it's there.
Round Up of the Coolest iPhone Mini Projectors
The AAXA P3 is one of those true "handheld" mini projectors. It's got loads of connection options so you're not only restricted to iPhone, but you can hook your iPhone up easily with the included composite cable.
The iGo is a bit of an enigma. It was originally made for the Flip cam, but has so many cool accessories we couldn't resist including it here. It has lots of connection options and you can connect to iPhone via composite port. Has some cool onboard software as well if you're using it for non-iPhone.
If you're after an affordable option, check out the Optoma PK101. It comes with all the connection cables that you need to connect to your iPhone, iPod or iPad. You can also use it for other devices too, bonus!
Why buy a mini projector for your iPhone?
When it comes to the perfect marriage of function and fashion, the iPhone is really class leading. Why would you try and cram lots of people around a tiny screen when it comes to sharing some of that cool media you can show on the iPhone?
A mini projector will let you whip out your phone and turn it into a portable cinema. Watch videos, play music, and use apps while showing people what you're doing.
It's great for pulling out at BBQs or you can even use it for more serious purposes like a portable demonstration or business presentation on the go.
