Still two more map pieces. I was hoping the pirates clock (which seems to say 7:45, so 8:45 EDT) announced when it would end, but apparently not. I guess no concession for those of us on the east coast with bed times.

Ahoy! Shiver me timbers, if there ain’t to be 12 bits to find for this map!


#5

Sleep when yer dead, matey!


#6

Hey look, another projector! Coming soon…Projectorwoot! Followed by TabletWoot!


#7

I need the final pieces soon! This concussion won’t allow for the computer much longer.


#8

$135 seems like a lot for a large toy flashlight that projects low-res images… Apparently everyone else thinks so as well.


#9

Awesome for Halloween setups :slight_smile:


#10

Can I use the bulb in this in my Easy Bake Oven?

In other words what does 60 lumens translate to in watts?


#11

Well I stayed up so late I happened to sleep in for a LONG time. So now, I’m good and will stay up late anyway. Thanks, woot!


#12

this is gonna be there until March 2015


#13

Sexy mom home with the stomach flu. Will give nudie photo for full map. LOL.


#14

I have a single LED flashlight that runs on 3 AAA batteries that puts out about that. Compare to a “real” projector that puts out maybe 3000 lumens.


#15

Don’t forget LaptopWoot.


#16

I’ll take you up on that offer. I will send you the map in the morning.


#17

Depends on the light bulb.

Here’s a random 60 lumen flashlight which is 3w.

Well, at 50 lumens - this is at least 3 times brighter than the pico projector that was offered a while ago… still not very bright by many standards…


#19

50 lumens? Seriously? Do you have to light the wick before watching a movie?

For the people thinking this would be great for a home theater, it wouldn’t be. Home theater projectors usually have 1200 lumens or more, this has 50. Lumens are a measure of the output of light. A 50-lumen projector would be difficult to watch in a totally dark room if the image size was larger than the average TV.

The projector manufacturers are shooting themselves in the foot by making these low-lumen projectors, because there will be a lot of pissed-off customers that think that all projectors are crap. In reality, good home-theater projectors are awesome. This isn’t one of them.

I’d like a BoC, but not enough to stay up late (and be tired all day tomorrow) for a chance at one, when I’m not sure I’ll clickity click fast enough anyway. Having a job makes it harder to buy things???
