Wowwee Cinemin Slice iPad and iPhone Projector Dock
The Cinemin Slice iPad and iPhone dock from Wowwee is not content with being an also ran, and we are thankful for that. It’s maybe the first dock to feature a pico projector, and by the looks of it, it’s about average as pico-projectors go.
But it’s not just a projector. You can put an iPhone into the dock section, or pull on it, and it retracts to accommodate the iPad. The dock’s speaker’s are smallish, 2×6 Watt, but there’s a headphone jack that will let you tie it into a bigger sound system.
Mini-HDMI and AV ports will let you hook up a laptop or media player, to take full advantage of the projector’s 854 x 470 resolution, whose 16:9 aspect ratio is wider than both the iPhone’s and the iPad’s. The image can be projected from 10 feet away, and enlarges to as much as 60 inches, with a power of 16 ANSI lumens. Contrast is 1000:1, but as with most any pico-projector, you’ll need to keep the room on the dark side.
