You decided to buy an iPad because you figured the screen on the iPhone was too small for proper video watching. Go ahead and bump that number up to a 60-inch display with the Wowwee Cinemin Slice. It may look like just another dock, but it’s rocking a pico projector under the hood.
This means that you can dock your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad and it’ll beam the appropriate image onto a blank surface for you. If said blank surface is about ten feet away, you get a resulting image of up to sixty inches. It’s got 1000:1 contrast, 16:9 aspect ratio, and 16 ANSI lumens, but a paltry 854 x 480 resolution may have you thinking twice about buying this hack job novelty DLP projector.
It’s not a total hack though, as it also has a pair of six-watt speakers, a headphone jack, infrared remote, mini-HDMI input, and other AV ports for added connectivity. Too bad there’s no SD slot. This beast will empty your wallet at $429.99. Look for it to ship in January 2011; pre-orders begin November 23 at Wowwee.
