Rather than force your relatives or guests at a party to gather around your laptop or iPad screen to see your awesome vacation pics, snatch up one of these pocket projectors and blast your photos onto a white wall, sheet, or screen instead. Your nearest and dearest will appreciate the ability to kick back during the slideshow and enjoy your photo tour.
If you're constantly sharing the latest videos with your friends on your iPhone, iPod, or iPad while hanging at home, you're in luck: Optoma, maker of the pocket Pico projector for iPod or iPhone, has made a sound dock that includes a projector.
Shipping next month, the Neo-i packs all the great audio-enriching features of a typical iPod sound dock, like a two-speaker bass-enhancing system, but also adds a visual element with a projector that can turn any dark room into a screening of your Netflix Instant Queue.

I'm blown away by the recently completed loft of budding 24-year-old interior designer Chris Cushingham. Industrial to the core, its furnishings are made mostly of materials the rest of us would pass up, such as corrugated cardboard, raw wood, plumbing conduit, shipping pallets, and burlap sacks. There's no doubt that Cushingham is one clever lad.
My favorite element of the apartment is how he maximized his space by hanging a pull-down projection screen from his bookshelf (which he DIY'd out of wood and conduit). Not only is there no bulky television screen hogging up prime storage space, but he also went even further to set a pair of mirrors there to visually expand the room. If small square footage is one of your decorating dilemmas, consider picking up a projector and screen to make the most of what you've got. In fact, if your walls are white, you'll only need a projector and you'll be well on your way to life as a savvy small-space dweller!
There's a new batch of high-tech cameras making their way to the market that I'm already drooling over. Coming with features like 3D and projectors, I'm like a kid in a candy store! Check out a few new cameras that will let you experiment with photography in new ways, and get to know one that will hopefully be coming to a store near you soon in this slideshow!
If you have a lil scientist or artist on your hands, perhaps you should arrange to have one of these Kid O kid-friendly projectors ($60) on tap. Wee ones can take their artwork or local finds and place them under the simple white machine for a big screen adventure on their own bedroom wall. Magnifying the image five times, youngsters can marvel at the magnificent colors of a stargazer's petals or create a slideshow to share with their families. Mom and Dad, bust out the popcorn and get a front row seat for the best show in the house!
Why wait for the perfect storm (literally) of rain and sun, when you can have your own rainbow, whenever and wherever you want it?
With just a wave of your hand over it, the Rainbow Projector produces an LED rainbow light for when you need a pick-me-up (or if you are so totally sick of looking for your pot of gold).
