Ok thats what I thought, I knew OHPs use them but I wont be using an OHP. Well I guess all I need then is a good lens. Im not picky on quality, just something to play my video games on at night

possibly. i have the site done, and hosting done, it just got pulled because of some disputes with my hosting over traffic...

this site pulls a LOT of people when its up. i think i was doing like 4K page visits a day near the end. i forgot how much bandwidth was used, but its more than a cable/dsl can handle for sure. it was in the multiple GB/month range.

ill get it back up and see if i need a mirror. where you located?

I live in Portland, Oregon west coast. Wow that sure is a lot of bandwidth. You might look into compressing your images a lot. Possibly a non intrusive banner ad would help you pay for your hosting? I will host as much bandwidth as I can for free in the name of diy projection. 320k upload.

nah, not near enough bandwidth thanks.

hosting is paid for. no worries there. its all setup, i just need time really...

images are compressed, max one is like 80k i think. trust me, its just a big site with a lot of visitors... thats all. once its up its fine. my hosting is like 100GB/month (i almost reached it the last month it was up :-)

Cowanrg,
How do you know that Zork5150`s projector doesn`t work? Have you tried it or something? It seems like it WOULD work. Any reason you believe otherwise?

Simply because the lights of america flourcesents aren't very high lumen which means you would have to have an awsome reflector for them. Plus his lens is a crt lens which means as was already pointed out would give an out of focus look on the outside edges. But maybe he figured some way around that. Bending his lcd panel JK.

Default zark

zark's idea was quite similar to my first idea, as i was browsing my partsexpress catalog and saw the cheap auto lcds. if you look at the screenshots on his site, you will see that they suck a$$. bright in the middle, dim in distorted on the edges. its like the video version of a bagel. the crt lens forces you to put the lcd within 1"--actually less--of the lens. i busted apart a fuji crt lens i got for 6 bucks and there are actually some potentially usable elements inside. read the original thread--it's all inthere

So his lens, the Delta IV, is no good for projecting?

buy one and try it , if you like. they're pretty cheap. apparently, they made a lot of these at some point. edmund has beesn selling them for years. i beleive theyre from the old scool huge front projection tv's of years ago. nothing wrong with them, but not really what we're looking for

uh, no... they ahve been tested MANY times, and proven to not work. the inside will be focused, but outside will be blurry. or vice versa.
