Product Description

Take projection out of the boardrooms and put it literally in the palm of your hand with the Cinemin Swivel Multimedia Pico Projector by WowWee. This pocket-size projector features Texas Instruments' DLP projection technology and a unique 90-degree hinge that allows you to project onto virtually any surface. Use it to connect to a wide variety of handheld devices--such as the iPod, iPhone, and Flip Video--so that you can project your videos, photos, and more with anyone, at any time.

Made for iPod and Other Popular Devices
The Cinemin Swivel can be used with your favorite portable media players, including the iPod, iPhone, Flip Video, PSP, digital cameras, portable DVD players, netbooks, and smartphones with video-out functionality. Just connect your device to the Swivels' easy-to-access AV-in jack, and you're ready to project. And with its unique, mid-body 90-degree hinge, the Swivel can project on any surface you can image, such as the ceiling, walls, and floor.

Ultra-clear, High Contrast Picture
Featuring Texas Instruments' DLP projection technology, the Cinemin Swivel produces remarkably clear, high contrast pictures with a resolution of 480 x 320 (HVGA). In a dimly lit environment, the Swivel can project a crisp 60-inch image from over eight feet away, or from the floor to the ceiling in a typical room.

Longer Battery Life
And unlike most other handheld projectors with battery spans of only 60-90 minutes, the Swivel has a rechargeable battery that lasts over two hours--so you'll never have to worry about your movie or slide show being cut short. The Swivel also includes an AC adapter, giving you the option of running it off any standard electrical outlet.

*sigh*

It's getting a bit tedious seeing all these falsely described products on here, featuring completely inappropriate words and even detail descriptions so they'll catch the eye - and money - of the less technically well-informed, who are then left out of pocket with an expensive lump of plastic that falls far short of their expectations and needs.

480x320 is NOT by ANY chalk "high definition", unless maybe you've just arrived fresh from the 1930s when such words were being used to describe the BBC's Marconi-system 425 line TV service (vs the 30-ish line Baird one). By modern standards it's not even Standard Def (if you were being charitable, you could say it's half of US broadcast definition - but it's barely a third of a standard UK DVD...). It's just-about (low end - stuff such as the iPhone 3G and Samsung 8910 far outstrip it) smartphone resolution. It will NOT be any good for use with a netbook (provided you even find one that can output plain Composite Video, which is all this projector takes, rather than the VGA ports most have as their only socket) unless all you're doing is watching iPlayer videos over a lower end connection, and in which case you'd still be as well to see them on the built in screen.

By all means, have a pocket projector like this for showing off pictures or videos from a compatible digital camera, camcorder or smartphone. It's probably fine for those purposes, if a little dim and blocky. But don't be under an illusions that it's any cop for use with a computer, or that the "high definition" part of the description is anything more than a shameful, bare-faced lie.

I can't understand how a company can make a claim like "High Definition" when plainly the specs say it isn't. Don't be misled!

Attached to the iPad or iPhone this becomes a lecture hall or classroom in a pocket. Packing a good punch for its weight this is a very useful little device for sharing ideas in meetings, small groups and small classrooms. The battery life is about an hour and you can plug it into the mains so whilst you cannot use it all day it is more than suitable for the short sessions and, I cannot really emphasise this enough, you can pop it into you pocket.

Along with a small video, a voice recorder and a set of small speakers I have a portable research and teaching studio which fits into a small carry bag.

An excellent product and excellent value for money.

The Cinemin picoprojector is a nice item for the price you paid. There are several things that you must have into account.
1. The product is designed to work with apple products. It comes with a conectivity pack.
2. If you want to use a laptop you need a VGA-to-AV or HDMI-to-AV. I bought a cable converter but did not work, so I had to buy a little box to do the job. Tha was my last chance before i had to return the projector. At last it worked perfectly. Or you try to get the Cinemin Swap, but in the webpage they said thoy wont produced again, so they opened a forum to explain these alternatives.
3. You have to experiment with the resolution of the screen in the laptop. 800x600 or 1200x720 worked very well for me.
4. As other reviews said, the projector is perfcet for very dark rooms. Very poor image in lighter rooms.
5. Amazon offers a mini tripod... dont buy it, the projector does not have the hole for it.
Its a 4.5 over 5. Nice toy.

I have read all the negative reviews on this product and have to say; I have a Sahara projector, it's a top of the range model and it's pretty good,the little cinemin swivel does not compare...BUT, it is still a sweet little gadget. My wife and I take it on holiday with us every year and combined with my Ipod and sharing a set of earphones, we absolutely love it. In a dark room, it will project to about 40 inches without loss of clarity. It most certainly isn't HD but it is the mutts nuts for watching films in foreign hotel rooms. Even if there is no white walls to project on, you can project it on the ceiling using the swivel facility or you can drape a white sheet between a couple of chairs and using the reverse function, watch it like a tv screen through the sheet. This may seem like a lot of fuss but it's fun! I used to take Ipod and cinemin with me when I was waiting to pick my son up from the gym. time goes by much quicker when your watching family guy! The battery lasts for a feature film and a half but it is possible to watch and charge at the same time. The built in speaker isn't a whole lot of good, we couple it through an Ipod dock but the earphone socket overcomes this. I also have the optional PC interface which allows me to couple it to the PC or laptop. We even use it as a disco projector when we have a party.
The new Iphone will do all this and more but for what I paid; I love my Cinemin swivel.
One other small point, there is no keystone facility but, hey, so what!
