    50' flat screen TV and a hammock?

    So what do these two things have in common? A fanatical diy thinker who should probably be on ridlen! I brought home the new TV, opened the box and the thing was wrapped in this really thin foam material. TV pfft! I turned to my fiance and said, " I can use this!"

    Now that's an idea. I wonder if any of the smartphones have a projector app.? You could lay in the hammock and watch video projected onto the tarp.

    whoa! awesome idea!
    Hook a smartphone that plays movies to a portable projector, like the pico, and you can watch movies projected on the underside of your tarp, while you are in your hammock.
    I REALLY didn't need to be exposed to this idea.

    Ahh... young love is blind. Enjoy it while you can. She'll come around pretty soon. But then again, most likely she already knows... and has decided it is part of your charm.

    jeremesh,
    Will you be organizing a group buy on these projectors?
    If so, lets talk. I don't "need" one, but I SOOOOOOOO want one.
