Has anyone thought about adding a real projector to R2 D2

I have seen some mini projectors and just wonder has anyone though about doing it.

I was looking at this one:

https://www.amazon.com/DeepLee-Projector...+projector

I may not put it in my complete droid, but I have an extra V1 dome that I was thinking of installing some kind of small projector in. Would be cool for sitting on a living room coffee table.

Hi Larry

The one I was looking at was this one HERE its very small and I see no reason why it wont work

I will be trying it when I get 2 mins to get started on my R2 D2 and will make sure I have it added to my build log

Oh man, sorry, I posted up something very similar a few days ago because I completely missed this thread.

I think once I get further along I'm going to try this DeepLee projector that LarryJ put up. What's $40 in the terms of an R2 build, really? Ha

You guys do realize the output resolution of that projector is reasonable low at 320x240 pixels?

It will accept a much higher resolution input then dithers it down to its native resolution or QVGA.

As long as you aren't expecting high quality results, it could look cool displayed on the wall or a screen on a stage.

It's more of a novelty for playing movies than anything... but yeah, I'm not expecting the same results as my 4K TV, for sure. I just want something that looks cool.

Did anyone ever get this projector working in their R2D2?

It can be done for sure just not had chance to do it yet as had a few problems with printer and family health issues

But with a good projector it can be done and can even be done with a small one

I'm almost at the point in my build where I'm going to start looking into this in earnest.
