what is it?

edit: oh is it one of those projector lenses? Yeah you're dumb, they dont work for s**t :laugh: no worries though ,it intrigued me too when I first saw them years ago, my step-father foolishly bought one (only $2 though) and it doesn't work for crap. Maybe they fixed it so it works? I dunno :no:

Well it's a kit, a lens to make the image off a TV bigger, and instructions on how to set it all up. I've never used one, and the reviews are mixed. You tell me how it comes out when your done.

Well the one my step-father bought was just a lense, and basically, you had to set the TV/Computer Monitor/whatever up in a box, it came with instructions on how to build the box correctly, and when he attempted to do it (man was it fun watching a non-handy man attempt to build something) he finished and the image was blurry, upside and backwards :laugh:

Best of luck to you though, let us know how it turns out (Y)

Its a sound idea but not that practical. More of an ebay gimmick I'd say.

If you were to build something like this with very high quality components you've basicly made a projector. You'll also need a very good screen.

Also I would think posting your address on here might not be the best idea.

So... Joel... you bought yourself one of these items did you?

Mr. Higgins... ah. Bring on the stalkers.

And tell me if it works, if the kits complete etc, otherwise try this:

Yeah man, let us know how it goes with that - a friend of mine keeps saying he's going to get one set up but he didnt have the balls.
