Now this thing is pretty sweet. What can I say? I'm a sucker for modern, "Euro" design. While you're better off with the old carousels if you've got a lot of slides, but for the one-offs - this new projector from Diapod might just be the ticket. It goes for 118€/$152.

It's also good for some interesting lighting ideas. I'm really digging this... But the price for the projector model creeps up to 170€/$220. Ouch. I'm thinking a digital projector is better for a more generalized "art installation" as at least you can rotate images in a true slideshow fashion with cool transitions, etc.

That is slick! No heat issues? How big can it go and still remain bright and contrasty?

I've seen this projector used and as Michael said it's probably better as a semi permanent "art installation". The results I saw from a Velvia slide where less than impressive compared to an old ($40) Rollei projector. But it is a pretty cool and compact toy :)
