The Cinemin Swivel is probably one of the coolest new things I have had sent to me to review recently! This small projector features a unique 90-degree hinge that will let you project images onto virtually any surface. You can connect to a huge variety of handheld devices, such as your iPod or Flip Video recorder! Turn any wall or flat surface into a screen to showcase your videos, photos and more.
Yes, I still have a portable DVD player, and I connected the Cinemin Swivel to it to demonstrate. Since there is a built-in speaker, I muted the volume so that it didn’t overlap with the sound in this video recording.
The quality may not look that great here in the video. However, looking at it in my home from across the room – it looks great! The quality and contrast is very, very good. Heck, I even beamed the live video feed from my office onto my ceiling!
How convenient is this? Think about it – you’re traveling for business or a conference, and you need a way to quickly showcase something to people you’re with. You just pull out the Cinemin Swivel, and find the nearest wall, table or ceiling!
I do wish it had a 180-degree swivel, and possibly some sort of stand or tripod. Both of these things would have made the product even better than it already it. The image is about 60″ across, which I feel is a fairly good size.
One of my favorite things is that it comes with an adapter for an iPod or iPhone. With the iPhone being the most popular phone at the present time, I feel it was a very smart idea for the company to include these. I can hook up to my iPhone instantly, and show off anything I need to.
If you are someone who travels a lot for business, I definitely recommend checking out the Cinemin Swivel. I have a feeling you’ll be very happy you did.
