A $40 Projector

Want a battery-powered portable projector? Buy.com is selling the Eyeclops Portable Mini-Projector for just $39.99, and they’ll ship it for free! It uses a solid state LED light source, so you’ll never have to replace an expensive lamp, and it runs on just four D flashlight batteries.

Now, before you get too excited, this is not an HD device. Heck, it’s not even SD. The manufacturer’s Web site does not mention resolution, but according to other sources, the projector has QVGA resolution, which stands for “quarter VGA“. That means it would take four of these 320 by 240 pixel images to create a single standard definition image. And it’s not bright. You need to have a darkened room in order to be able to get the most from this projector.

It may not be the amazing deal that it might sound like at first, but it still is a stunning price for a video projector.
