Projecteo | A Tiny Instagram Projector + {Promo Code}

A while back I introduced Stickygram, magnets you can make with your Instagram photos. Well, here's another novel idea - Projecteo, a tiny projector that turns your Instagram images into your own personal slide show! A Projecteo unit is about the size of a matchbox {46 x 38 x 27 mm}. Mind. Blown.

The spark for Projecteo came from a Rollei P35 slide film projector in a London market. The company's curious inventor took it home and realised the mechanics could be miniaturised. By using Instagram images, Projecteo brings back the nostalgic warmth of old slide projectors to the photos we take now. Aww brilliant idea! If you want to wow your friends and show them your photos in a cool way, this is it!

It's best to use Projecteo in a dark room and project it onto a light coloured surface at a distance of maybe 4-50cm. Of course the nearer you are to the surface, the sharper the image but there's a tuner at the front that you can use to adjust the sharpness. The quality is pretty good actually and I love the old-school feel to it.

I gave a set to the boy with images of our wedding photos for our wedding anniversary this year and he said it was one of the most awesome things I've ever given him. Score!! It's hard to get gifts for the males sometimes so yes, a tick there as an item the big boys will like and a unique gift idea for this coming Christmas too ;)

Each wheel holds 9 images and you can easily switch the wheel in and out of Projecteo. The wheels costs US$8.99 each while a Projecteo unit costs US$25.99.  Free delivery worldwide on all orders.

Projecteo develops your chosen Instagram photos onto a single frame of 35mm Kodak film that is set into a custom wheel. All you have to do is to sign in with Instagram and pick 9 of your fave images at the Projecteo website, and follow the quick instructions to check-out. The website accepts Paypal and all major credit cards.

Have fun and hope you enjoy this cute little gadget as much as we do :)

Promo Code: Quote "FRIEND03ZG" at checkout for US$5 off each Projecteo unit you purchase! You can only use it once per Instagram account. No expiry date.
