The $100 Pocket Cinema

The $100 Pocket Cinema


What’s up guys, Lew here back with
another video, and today I’m bringing you something… “Petit”. “Petit de je ne.” God… Can I- Today I’m bringing you something small. Something small that’s not usually small. It’s a
projector. It’s one of the smallest I could find, fits in the palm of your hand, is about the size of a phone. It’s around a hundred bucks. It’s not super highly
specced out when you’re talking about lumens and resolution and all that jazz, but it’s more of a kind of a little pocketable theater if you will. You’re
gonna want to use this in a dark environment, I think it’s like 25 lumens,
960 by 540, maybe even in your backyard on the fence, you wanna have a little drive-in movie type vibe? Anyway, Pocket Projector from a company called “AAXA Technologies”. You can see on the side here, you can use it with a number of
different devices. You can even hook a game console up to it! For a real party!
Even has a speaker in it, which is cool or a headphone jack if you want to take it to the next level. There’s a couple ways to interface with this guy, I believe. It features Mini- HDMI. Look how small that is. Or, you can stick an SD card in here with all your media files on it. So here is the little guy. Wow, that’s- I’ve seen some small
projectors, but that is… That’s about a small as they go. There’s the lens on the front
there. Jack can probably pick that up. Also a wheel, probably to focus that lens, I’m
guessing. This looks like the speaker. Some controls here on the top. Over here we have DC 5 volt in. I suppose to charge this up. It’ll do like, a movie’s worth
of battery life. There’s also a USB Out on it I suppose that’s for hooking up maybe an external drive or something? On the bottom, a tripod mount. Over here we have our SD card slot, that’s microSD, but those are huge now, you can get like 200
gigabytes. You have an AV out, headphone jack, and of course your Mini-HDMI, so USB to charge it up… Makes sense. Uhh… And then they gave you the standard AV. Of course! And look, they did include a mini little tripod, that’s sweet. So you can catch the right angle. See, there’s even a little clip on it. And look at that, you can- can you catch an angle- Yeah, you can! It’s time to test this thing out. Hopefully we have a charge.
Little fan in there! Oh, that baby came on, okay, cool. Yeah, the interface, it’s pretty basic, but then again… You gotta curb your expectation. This thing is around a
hundred bucks, and you’re getting a built-in media player, they didn’t have to give you that, it could have just been an HDMI In. So if you don’t want to use the media
functionality, just get yourself an HDMI cable, hook up your console, Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast or whatever; and feed media to it that way. So if what you need is a
little movie theater every once in a while, or maybe a more dramatic way to watch Unbox Therapy, this guy will figure it out. It’ll hook you up.

  1. i just bought one tonight second hand and its great you have to hold the power button for several seconds till it turns on and it never come with anything but a jack to p;ay on dvd player no charger

  2. While you invest the time to make a good video, you forget the entire point to begin with… This is a review. Why rush thru and guess at what all the ports on the device are for? Have you any idea how amateurish that appears? I suggest reading the manual, ya know, doing your homework…
    Or maybe this is not really about a projector at all, but rather all about you? I suspect as much. It seems to be the fashion these days with so-called reviewers on YouTube.

  3. Mount it on the hood of your car or dash, park facing your garage door and have your own drive-in movie..Who cares what the neighbors think? 🙂

  4. I watch unbox theorpy using a high-end projector on a wall, giving a 100inchish screen. I paint the gawd damn wall with your beautiful face.

  5. fairly reasonable deal, but the FPS could have made it better, it looked around 10-15 FPS 30 is fine with me for watching movies.

  6. Hello man! we have been thinking of buying something like this! would you review the one from Sony? The Sony MP-CL1

  7. He wants to save you and you can accept him Jesus in you heart as your Lord and savior by saying the sinner's prayer

  8. Unboxtherapy is just a shill for companies, honestly the most biased reviews on YouTube he doesn't even review a company sends him a device to open and he gets paid for it everything he shows he recommends you to buy. I garauntee those kanoe headphones would have been "great" if unboxtherapy was the first one to review. b.s channel who runs fake contests (google it)

  9. wow. pack a cheap 128GB card filled with basic quality movies into it and it could actually be quite useful as a portable theater.

  10. That pocket projector is useful and efficient especially in african schools. As most of aftican countries education is based on theories, by owning that thing can really really enhance learning by seeing. We need that in tanzania

  11. I use this projector to project images onto cookies and cakes to easily recreate shapes and writing in icing. It’s so helpful! I’ve never used it for watching movies or anything like that.

  12. Ive had mine for a year now . Its awesome. Its very picky about power, always have to keep it plugged in, but you can use it while its charging.

  13. Hi Lue, could you please cover portable projector more? I think this is a very interesting technology.

  14. did you just say TWENTY FIVE lumens?? dude thats not even usable.. i bought a very cheap 60$ projector thats 1 thousand lumens and 720p and it is too dim to use in anything other than complete pitch black darness..
