The Smartphone Projector is a charmingly lo-fi way to share your phone's screen. Just place any smartphone that will fit into the cardboard box and the lens enlarges the image by up to eight times! Since the whole thing is made from cardboard and glass, it’s ultra-portable, totally wireless, and uses no additional power.
The Smartphone Projector is a cardboard kit that you make into a handy device. Follow the simple instructions to fold and glue the contraption together and insert the glass lens. Once you’ve put it together, all you need is a dark room and the phone in your pocket. After setting it an appropriate distance from the wall, expand or contract the projector housing to set the focus, sit back, and enjoy!
With the Smartphone Projector, showing the latest viral video to your friends becomes a shared experience instead of a toe-stepping, neck-craning frenzy. Display your vacation snapshots on your living room wall, throw up some visuals for a house party, or watch a film in bed. And kids will enjoy the feeling of having their very own personal movie theater!

Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Will it work with my phone?
Answer: If it fits inside the box, it'll work! If your device is smaller than 3.5" x 5.75", then you're ready to go!
Note: The iPhone 6 will fit, but the iPhone 6 Plus is too large.
Question: How difficult is it to build?
Answer: The DIY Smartphone Projector is pretty easy to put together. All it requires is a bit of glue and some folding. The illustrated instructions are very easy to follow. You'll have it put together in about 10-15 minutes.
Question: How big is the image?
Answer: The Smartphone Projector is definitely not meant to replace a big screen or a high-end projector. However, it can magnify your smartphone's screen by up to 8 times! So, a 5.75" wide screen will project to 46" across. That's perfect for impromptu movie nights.
Question: Is it bright enough to see?
Answer: Absolutely! That being said, you must project the image on to a white wall or a white sheet, and the room needs to be as dark as possible.
