Well after seeing the thread on household modifying, thought I would post some pictures of my other project which has been on going for months now and still not finished.
Its a diy projector, not a silly £5 kit off ebay.
You use a 400w bulb (or 150w-1kw bulb)
Couple of fresnel lens'
And a object lens
And a suitable lcd panel
Put it all together and you get a huge box like this (please excuse the messy room )
From the front:
I will admit the picture is not perfect, has a few scratches on the lcd, and it generally needs cleaning, as I havent finished tweaking the projector the image is still far from finished.
The white is slightly green (think the bulb is crap), overall the image is slightly dark due to the lamp being 4mm too low
But watching movies on it is fine
The corners are not as dark as in the image, nor is the whole image as dark as the above, its too hard to take a picture of it with a dogey digital camera.
If anyone whats any info on how to do this, will be more than happy to provide you with some links etc on how to do it.
Best bit the lamp has a 20,000 hr life span (doubt it will last that long, but at £30 each im not complaining)
