Product Description


Take projection out of the boardrooms and put it literally in the palm of your hand with the Cinemin Swivel Multimedia Pico Projector by WowWee. This pocket-size projector features Texas Instruments' DLP projection technology and a unique 90-degree hinge that allows you to project onto virtually any surface. Use it to connect to a wide variety of handheld devices--such as the iPod, iPhone, and Flip Video--so that you can project your videos, photos, and more with anyone, at any time.

The Cinemin Swivel offers:
  • Mid-body 90-degree hinge for adjustable viewing.
  • Small size and long battery life for easy traveling.
  • High-contrast, ultra-clear HVGA picture.
  • Four international adapters for charging abroad.

A 90-degree hinge gives you flexibility to project an image anywhere without having to use a tripod or prop.
Made for iPod and Other Popular Devices
The Cinemin Swivel can be used with your favorite portable media players, including the iPod, iPhone, Flip Video, PSP, digital cameras, portable DVD players, and smartphones with video-out functionality. Not for use with desktop, laptop, or netbook computers. Just connect your device to the Swivels' easy-to-access AV-in jack, and you're ready to project. And with its unique, mid-body 90-degree hinge, the Swivel can project on any surface you can image, such as the ceiling, walls, and floor, without a tripod or prop.

Ultra-clear, High Contrast Picture
Featuring Texas Instruments' DLP projection technology, the Cinemin Swivel produces remarkably clear, high contrast pictures with a resolution of 480 x 320 (HVGA). In a dimly lit environment, the Swivel can project a crisp 60-inch image from over eight feet away, or from the floor to the ceiling in a typical room.

Longer Battery Life
And unlike most other handheld projectors with battery spans of only 60-90 minutes, the Swivel has a rechargeable battery that lasts over two hours--so you'll never have to worry about your movie or slide show being cut short. The Swivel also includes an AC adapter, giving you the option of running it off any standard electrical outlet.

Innovative 90-Degree Swivel Base
The Swivel boasts a one-of-a-kind, stylish 90-degree hinge that makes it easy to project onto the floor, walls, or ceiling without having to use a prop or a tripod. The handheld projector also includes a built-in speaker with adjustable volume and a headphone jack, allowing you to connect your own portable speakers for when you need to crank the volume.

Equipped for International Traveling
Lightweight and compact, the Swivel is perfect for traveling. And because it comes with a stylish, padded carrying case and includes four power adapters for North America, the UK, Europe, and Australia--the Swivel is ideal for your next globetrotting excursion.

By taking projection technology out of boardrooms and literally into the palm of your hand, the Cinemin Swivel lets you enjoy your multimedia collection virtually anywhere, with anyone.

What's in the Box
AC/DC power adapter with four plugs, USB (A) to mini USB (B-5 pin) cable, USB (A) to mini USB (B-4 pin) cable, 3.5 mm to 3.5 mm cable, AV composite to 3.5 mm cable, battery, padded soft case with Velcro flap, and a quick start guide.

The Cinemin Swivel is perfect for karaoke parties, projecting movies onto the ceiling, presenting business ideas, and enjoying home movies.

The picture quality was great, very easy to focus.
A few weeks later I am slightly disappointed and thought I would share this so that other users know what they let themselves in for.

I was very much looking forward to this amazing gadget. A few weeks later I am slightly disappointed and thought I would share this so that other users know what they let themselves in for. I bought it specifically for my iphone, but was very gutted to hear that it only supports video and photo slideshow on the phone. I was hoping to show of some of the amazing apps I bought and am developing myself. The resolution is not great and it needs to be very dark for you to achieve a good enough image. They advertise it by showing that you can shine it on the side of a tent - I am not so sure what that would accomplish. If you are in a dark room and you have got a smooth white surface to project against, it is all right. If you were thinking of using headphones while watching the movie, you can't change the volume. So all and all, I would give it a 3 out of 5 and probably would not have bought it had I the chance to do it again.. Sorry.

This is really an impressive little gadget. Quite easy to use, just plug it in to charge, turn it on and attach a device. I attached my iPhone and watched videos through iTunes and YouTube quite easily. On a wall, on a ceiling. There really needs to be very little ambient lighting though. But when it's dark, really a pretty sharp picture for the size of the thing and its resolution. And I was especially impressed by the sound given the tiny size of the speaker.

My only complaint is a lack of documentation. The box came with a "quick start guide" which told you very little beyond how to charge it and a couple of other notes and one "sample" configuration. That's it, and there doesn't seem to be any more documentation online. But given how relatively easy to use it is, this is a minor quibble.

I'm rarely the first to get anything but this thing is COOL. I'm a sucker for tiny form factors. Priced right for a new gadget (thought I could see it going lower in time--under $200 would be nice). We had been looking at buying a used LCD/DLP projector but with this, we got what we needed and more. We just got it yesterday and found it easy to use, reasonably easy to set up with the exception of hooking it up to our portable dvd player. We needed to jerry rig it into a M2M AV connection--the quick start guide doesn't cover this at all and we stole the cable from our tv to make it work. Haven't checked battery life but it's easily run off the ac adapter

That said, my 6 year old LOVED hanging out in our living room watching a movie both off my iphone and the portable dvd. She's already plotting her next sleep over. The picture quality is amazing--our display on the living room wall was probably about 4' x 7-8 feet and very clear given that the room was not completely dark. For a group, you might want to hook it up to external speakers (we hooked it up to our Bose SoundDock and it worked great) but when traveling or for a small group, the sound on the little device is fine. Great when you don't have to force 4 kids to crowd around a little dvd player.

For work, I can definitely see taking this to client sites when I need to do presentations. It's about the size of a digital camera even with the case and cables. Very light, compact. Comes with all the connectors you need for the most part including power adapters for int'l travel.

A clever gadget, especially for the $$. Would be fun if they produce them in different colors like the apple products.

I was very anxious to recieve this as a christmas present this year. I currently have a Infocus projector which is rather large. It to is a DLP and has a very nice quality of picture to it. I read all the reviews about this prior to my wife purchasing the item (she cant keep secrets very well.)

Lets just start off with the packaging of the item. Very neat well packaged when I opened it up. I m not one for reading instruction manuals, but I did take a peak at the manual, very short and to the point not a lot of detail. My main reason for looking at the manual was to find out about charging the battery before use. Well there wasn't any information that I could find on it so I went straight into testing it out. The iphone adapter is pretty straight forward. Plug it in just like the issued iphone/ipod cable and wait for the blue light to appear to ensure it is seated properly. I then took my 3.5mm AV cable and plugged that into the bottom of the adapter and then the Cinemin. Of course it was daylight out so the picture wasn't very visible. I then took it to a darker room in the house and projected my image on the wall. Very clean after a few tweaks of the focus scroller. I then tested the sound out. Now being that you lose all control of the sound on the Ipod/Iphone after the adapter takes over I was limited to the sound of the Cinemin. The sound was very limited and not very loud. Just enough for 1 person to hear. But I wasnt to concerned about that cause she also bought the Tweakers mini Speakers which work wonders for the sound. In the end I am very pleased with the Cinemin projector and look forward to breaking it with use over the next few years and future deployment I have in the middle east.

Pros: Size, Picture quality, Ease of Use

Cons: Very dark room to watch, Sound on the speaker not very loud.
