Re: So... I wanna make my own video projector

That $99 projector is absolute garbage. If you want to buy that, then you're better off burning your money (or giving it to me ;)). http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/buyer-beware/worlds-crappiest-projector-reviewed-327587.php" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Now, is there a way to make the p...

Re: So... I wanna make my own video projector

Oh, yeah. I got the wrong URL. It's actually ChinaVasion, not ChinaVision. http://www.chinavasion.com/ is the correct address. And BTW, I don't make enough to splurge $200 on a projector, and that's why I wanna either make one that costs less than $100 or just buy the $99 one from HA. I mean, would ...

Re: So... I wanna make my own video projector

No bulb will work well but a Metal Halide. I have been building projectors for over 5 1/2 years and I have tried almost every light source available. With a homemade projector you will get approximately 1/2 of 1% of the bulbs lumens through the projection lens. The reason behind this is the light l...

Re: So... I wanna make my own video projector

Don't get the one you linked to at HA, it's a cheap knockoff with rectangular pixels. So... then I should stick to making one, cuz I'm not going to shell out something that needs to be supplied with impossible-to-find-outside-the-Internet lamp bulbs. Especially since even the cheap, refurbished one...

Re: So... I wanna make my own video projector

So... using this particular Instructable , I plan on making one. Now, this person had a great deal of the stuff and spent $50 on what s/he didn't. Now, I only have the DVD player, so how much would the rest cost? If it's too much, I'll just buy this $100 projector from Heartland America . And what l...

Re: So... I wanna make my own video projector

I'm NEVER gonna use an overhead projector. They are WAY too heavy. I need to be able to carry it from Point A (i.e. the living room) to Point B (either the back yard or an off-premise location, like someone else's house). But if I do use one, which I won't, it'll be built around a broken laptop in l...

So... I wanna make my own video projector

I've currently got the DVD player. Still gotta get the rest of the parts, but what I wanna know is what should I use as the light source. I originally wanted to use LEDs, but found out that their lumens level is crap. I heard of someone using a bulb from a halogen light. But I found out that my loca...

Turning LCD games into projection-based games?

Over at Raphael Assenat's webpage , there's a how-to on turning an LCD watch into a projection clock. Now, taking that into heart, I gotta ask if it's possible to turn LCD-based games (like this handheld Space Invaders game ) into one with a projected screen? So then, instead of playing the game on ...

What i find surprising is that people have these idea's yet won't spend the time to learn to code or take the easy way out and use a damn free engine that can do it yet they still don't wanna script. Either learn or use a game creator tool or don't bother posting about it cause really who would wan...

Actually its not a trilogy. There are four games out now. Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare is on Dreamcast. The New Nightmare doesn't count. It's not a continuation of the first three, and thus isn't part of the original trilogy. And it was also out on the PC, PlayStation, and the GameBoy Color...

It's not bumping if you're adding to the proceedings. Which I totally did.

Yes. Do I care? Not yet.

I really love the original trilogy, simply cuz I'm a Lovecraft fan of sorts.
