Pin 223, DIY IPhone Projector

Add this one to the list of Pin failures. I could not get this to work. I’m not sure what I was doing wrong, but this one just wasn’t happening.


I’m just glad I did not go out and buy anything to create the projector. I followed all the directions to a T. I had all the materials including the exact magnifying glass from the dollar store. It just didn’t work. I set up the IPhone in the box as instructed and even reversed the image on the phone. I walked back and forth with nothing but blurry light projecting onto the wall. There was never a visible image. If you can make it work, please, by all means, send me an email with your secrets to success. Here’s the link to the site for instructions.


Even the shoebox is the same color. What’s up?


I thought the kids would love to see their images projected on the wall. Instead, I have to buy Riley a new magnifying glass.


Here’s my proof. What a perfectly good shoebox that’s gone to waste.

222 to go…….let’s hope the next one works out.

  1. Your phone seems too far back in the box. Mine worked if I moved it toward the lense tad by tad until I could see the image and then fine tuned it by moving the actual box.
