Indeed, this is a great idea to use a shoe box for this purpose! Recently, nearly everyone has a smartphone. With a bit of luck you have also got some fun apps such as Netflix or YouTube installed on it. Should this be the case for you, then you should keep reading this article, because this simple trick will just be the thing for you!
All you need is an empty shoebox, a round magnifying glass and your smartphone.
Believe it or not, but with the listed items you can very easily make your own home cinema! In the video below, you can see how someone cuts a round hole the size of a magnifying glass into the front of a shoe box. He further places the round glass in front of the hole and puts his smartphone, with the screen facing forwards, into the box.
It is necessary to place your phone upside down, though. The magnifying glass will project the screen upside down on your white wall. In order to ensure your phone remains upright in the shoe box and is easier to place, you can make use of a large paperclip or fashion something fancier like in the video below. When you have put on the film you want to see and have placed your smartphone in the right spot, close the lid on the shoe box, turn off the lights and face the box towards a white wall. You can now have the fun in your home cinema!
