Ok, I'm at home, BUT.. This IS a LIVE feed from HoJo's Mattercam projected on my wall at 120"! Ha! I LOVE rainy days at DL and can't be there today so I brought up the cam on my iPhone and plugged it into the HDMI connector on my projector and BAM!! I at least get an 'almost' full wall of LIVE Disneyland Resort! Ha :-)

By the way, I call this my "White-Trash Theater" Ha. I have a "cheap" ($600 on Woot!) Optima 720p Projector that I have in our back room, projecting on a clean white bed sheet on the wall... and you'd actually be surprised how great it looks! 8):-) - imtigger  20.6 #7220 4:49PM
I think I'm going to do this too! - JoeDownTheRabbitHole  402.2 #561 4:50PM
I would decorate my room just like the Grand and pretend I live at DCA! Lol - SueBayou  2019.0 #78 5:06PM
Ha! That reminds me of when I debated getting one for way too long. I'm the type that will do my research online and take WAY too long to decide on options and quality etc... and I DID do my homework regarding the throw, keystone, color, resolution, Lumens, etc.. I mean I was up to almost getting this $2300 projector, and took months of talking myself into then out of it I mean I thought not just projector, but theater seats, the right reflective screen, ambient light solutions, ceiling mount, etc. Then one day I see this "beginner" Optoma 720p projector on Woot.com with decent specs, a referb, and only $600! I said "what the hell, I'll upgrade later!". So here it is 3 years later and we still LOVE this thing and I would not only recommend ANY projector over a huge LCD any day, but I'd convince you that no you don't "need" 1080p (but do it if you can afford it), fancy screens and special furniture. Buy it. Put it on a wire closet shelf like I did, attach a nice Bose desktop PC speaker set w subwoofer, plug in your Apple TV, Roku, Xbox and TiVo and just GO FOR IT! Never look back. It's the best video purchase I've ever made. My family and friends love stopping by for movie nights and even on a bed sheet, it looks great! :-) - imtigger  20.6 #7220 5:46PM
What kind of iPhone do you have that has HDMI out? - Melody_CM  13474.2 #3 10:08PM
Melody... I have the iPhone 4S that will "mirror" what's in the phone, but you can see video through the HDMI Adapter cable from most any iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. There's adapters for HDMI and standard video. My projector doesn't have speakers (like most all of them) but not a problem... Just do audio out from the headphone jack, and video from the adapter cable. 8):-) - imtigger  20.6 #7220 3:46PM
Wow, great idea! I've considered buying one but wasn't convinced until now. Thanks for posting! - CountryBearLisha  6.4 #15228 7:48AM

I have the same thing too a ghetto theatre lol - PrinceTeaJack  934.6 #198 4:51PM
Oh, and that's a glass coffee table reflecting at the bottom, and a workout machine (aka, a place to hang some laundry) on the left of screen there. Yup!! White-Trash Theater for sure! Ha! - imtigger  20.6 #7220 4:52PM
That looks great! - DisneyPhotoFan  920.2 #199 5:11PM

Very cool! - ArchaeoMouse  218.8 #1745 5:23PM
That is the coolest idea! I think you've given my husband  bad ideas which of course start with buying a porjector LOL - Autoalice  161.4 #2545 5:27PM
We used to do that on a white wall in the living room! The projector is always gone on business trips now, and we get better picture on the plasma TV. But not quite as big. ;) - ThatStarWarsKimberly  408.0 #551 5:33PM
That's awesome! I wish I had a projector in my room. It would be like my own personal theater lol - rbeezy  703.0 #275 5:36PM
It's like your own personal window to the parks! - Jaytasmic  373.3 #610 5:51PM

Necessity is the mother of invention. Nice. - WeMetAtDisneyLand  41.9 #5129 3:47PM
Ha! Viewing party at Tigger's house!! You guys bring the Turkey Legs and Corn Dogs! ;-) BTW... For another size reference, of you can zoom in just below the projector image, you can see the dark outline of our Sony 55" LED 3D TV. Very high tech TV, but it's funny cause for movies we definately prefer the projector. Sheet on the wall and all. It just feels more like a theater "film". Sometimes 1080p and Blu-Ray shows "too" much detail, like makeup and cut-in effects. The 720p projector truly softens movies perfectly. Oh, and it's great for the HoJo Mattercam too of course. ;-) - imtigger  20.6 #7220 3:53PM
