Stuck at Home? 6 Amazing Ways to use a Projector that You Never Knew
Before COVID-19, watching movies on a big screen used to be an expensive recreation. You have to either spend on going to the cinemas (add in overpriced popcorn) or buy an expensive huge-panel TV at home. However, by owning a value-for-money home projector, you can now enjoy the same theatre experience right in your own home without burning a hole in your pocket.
But home projectors are not just limited to movie watching purposes. With great compatibility with most devices, there are actually endless possibilities.
These are 6 amazing things to do with a projector that you never knew about.
1. Play Your Favourite Game in King Size
Plug in your favorite PS4, XBOX, Nintendo Switch and feel the sheer difference in screen size (see above comparison).
If you have kids or even, many friends coming over (not now, please), a projector works amazingly well for multi-player party games like Overcook, Animal Crossing and Mario Kart where everyone gets a sizeable share of a 150" screen.
If you are more of a solo player, imagine experiencing the latest Resident Evil 3 remake, running away from Nemesis in total room darkness with your immersive big screen. That should get your heart pounding!
In short, once you have experience casual gaming with a projector, you & your family will never go back. More screen, more fun.
2. Project a Gordon Ramsey Recipe Video While Cooking
This stay- home period brings out the inner chef inside all of us. You have found the perfect YouTube video from Gordon Ramsey on the best pasta sauce base. You prepared the ingredients and want to follow the recipe carefully.
But, your phone screen is too small to see from a distance and you have to keep touching your expensive phone with your oily or flour-covered hands. ARGH!
With a home projector, you can project a nice image on your kitchen wall in front of you.
Set the video speed to 0.5x, you can comfortably follow the recipe without touching any devices!
3. Create your own spinning studio or night gym at home
Being stuck at home working out doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Set up your home projector, turn off the lights, max the surround sound volume and you have your own spinning studio right in your room!
More into yoga & meditation in the dark? Stream directly from your phone and a home projector can bring that whole experience into the next level in your room.
This is going to save you tons of money in spinning & yoga subscription in the long run..
4. ZOOM your girlfriend/boyfriend in full HD on a 100 inch screen
The COVID period is a downer. It is made worse given the government ban on gatherings or visitation. This shouldn’t stop you from showing love for your bf/gf. Project a 100 inch screen in your room and ZOOM your girlfriend from the comfort of your bed.
With the 1080 HD quality on such a big screen, both parties should be able to see each other’s faces CLEARLY like never before!
5. Tell a Magic Bed Time Story
Bed time stories are unique moments for parents to have with their children. Utilize a projector to make your children look forward to bedtime (seriously). You can breathe life into your stories by flashing animals of a zoo or short educational videos.
With its portability, projectors can also be conveniently moved from room to room and you can immediately cast any content directly with your smartphone.
It is a well-known fact that direct light from TV screens is bad for your kids’ eyes and can cause eye strains.
On the other hand, full HD projectors are more comfortable for the eyes due to indirect light and provide a safe viewing experience for your kids.
6. Paint a Mural At Home
Brainstorming a fun family bonding activity during this COVID-19 period? By pasting a white cardboard paper on your wall and projecting an image on it, you & your kids can spend hours drawing a painting by following along the colours and lines.
This DIY venture is another way parents can invest some quality time with their children.
Let your children’s creativeness flow through with the help of a massive screen that only a projector can do.
