Pocket Projectors put to good use by charities working in Africa

Hear Charlotte's view from uscreates:
'In just three weeks the pedal-powered cinema reached around 12,000 people in communities across the Kisoro district. At the end of every session, each community planted tree saplings donated by GAFI and pledged to make improvements. The sessions created the ideal situation to talk about conservation and sustainable solutions for the future.'
We have had a large number of pico projector customers intending to use the technology abroad for travel, charity or missionary work because they are so lightweight and portable. Most being battery powered, they are perfect for taking to remote areas. One recent customer told us of how she carried her micro projector in a satchel on the back of a motorbike in South America - they are hardy little gadgets! What with pocket projectors having excellent connectivity such as USB, SD Card or onboard memory, they really can be taken anywhere to share media.
Those behind the 'Pedal Powered Cinema' in this charity project were Electric Pedals. Electric Pedals are renowned experts in the world of pedal power and have been involved in a wide range of projects and run workshops creating people powered energy solutions. They recently appeared on BBC1′s Human Power Station.
Using an ultra-efficient, low energy, LED projector and high quality portable sound system we can create an off-grid cinema experience for hundreds of people using only 1 bicycle generator, pedalled by the audience of course…
As LED projector specialists at Personal Projector, it is always inspiring to see them put to good use by charity workers heading out to locations such as Africa. Feel free to get in touch to tell us about projects you might be involved in, or if we can assist you in selecting a portable projector from our range appropriate to your requirements - no matter how adventurous!
