Digital media has the powerful ability to captivate, immerse and enhance children’s grasp of information. In this project we take apart a cheap (100 $ ) projector phone and turn it into a functioning classroom projector. All using locally found resources and tools. The battery is replaced with a radio battery for longevity, high power led’s are added for extra brightness and the whole thing can be recharged and run on solar power !
This project is a collaboration with the Frugal Digital Initiative at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design. For more please visit http://frugaldigital.org/archives/328 . Some images taken from the Frugal Digital website
