Who’s not on Instagram these days, right? This mega network of photographers and networkers has rapidly become one of the, if not the, most popular photo sharing service on the Internet. It’s odd though that Instagram hasn’t opened up to more “modding” than they have. Their API could be so much richer than it currently is, and there are no limits to what mods could reinvent this super creative platform, but people don’t have time to sit around and wait for something that might never happen. So for everyone who is mesmerized by Instagram and loves to adventure into the retro world, the Projecteo might be something for you. It’s the world’s first Instagram image slide projector.
Innovator and founder Benjamin Redford came up with something that could possibly become this year’s ultimate Christmas present. It’s a epically small 35mm image slide projector that is as portable as they come. With the accompanying iPhone application, you will be able to custom make your own image slide projector wheels from your accumulated stock of Instagram photos and create a mesmerizing collection of image slides to impress all of your friends and loved ones.
This image slide projector really is the perfect little gadget for people on traveling foot. You will be able to project the images on any surface and feel the retro adventure showering over you like yesterday suddenly becoming today. Benjamin and his team are currently looking for funding (just like every other innovative company today) through Kickstarter. For just $25 or more, you will receive your very own image slide projector to impress people with. It’s amazing what retro can do to the future when you think about it. For all you creative people out there, I am sure this is something that will make a brilliant addition to your already professional gadget park. Bring on the retro and adventure out into what used to be the only way to view images on a projected surface.
