WowWee Cinemin Slice Adds Projector to iOS devices

By combining an iOS device dock with a pico projector, the guys at WowWee will help you convert your iDevice into a mini home theater you can take anywhere you go.

The Cinemin Slice has a reasonably bright DLP projector built into it, and all you need to do is slide your iPod, iPod Touch, iPod Nano, iPhone, or iPad into the dock, and you can project your video onto any spare wall you’ve got around.

While the tiny projector only outputs 854×480 resolution at just 16 lumens, I was pleasantly surprised by how bright it was compared to most pico projectors I’ve seen. I had a chance to see it first-hand at CES, and even with all the ambient light in the room, they were able to get about a 3-foot diagonal picture on a beige wall that you could actually see. The shot below shows how bright it is when it’s isolated from ambient light.

In a darkened room, on a white wall or projection screen, you’ll do substantially better. WowWee says you should be able to get a bright 60-inch picture (from about 10 feet away) in a darkened room with no problem. The dock also has a built in audio system with two 6-watt speakers, and will also accept Mini-HDMI, VGA or composite video inputs.

The Cinemin Slice is will ship sometime this month is available for pre-order now, and retails for $429.99 (USD).
