Watching vacation slides, movies or other multimedia content on your smartphone just got a high tech upgrade from Luckies of London. This retro projector accommodates any phone up to 3 x 5.5 inches and displays your videos, photos, or text on the wall for all to see.

Simply slide the back compartment in and out to focus the image, then let the glass lens do its magnifying work--without the need to connect to a power source. The easy-to-assemble corrugated cardboard structure offers two slots for speakers or a phone charger, so you won't run out of juice halfway through that YouTube cat marathon.

Made with cardboard and a glass lens, the projector measures 6.5" L x 6.9" W x 4.1" H. Assembly instructions are included, but you’ll have to supply your own adhesive. This projector is not recommended for use with iPhone 6 Plus. All other smartphones are compatible.

You’ll need to focus the image by varying the distance between the lens and your phone. Pull out and make the projector longer when focusing on a closer surface, and push in and make the projector smaller to create a crisper image on a more distant surface. Remember that for best results, a distance of 1-2 meters between the lens and the surface you’re projecting on to is recommended
