Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Coin Operated Drive-In Movie Projector

I was on eBay and ran across some old coin operated radios they use to have in hotels. I thought it would be kind of cool to make a dieselpunk style, coin-operated, movie projector. Here's my first attempt. There's pico projector inside the parking meter.

The whole photo set is here. Feel free to provide feedback.

Tome I have it connected directly to the iPod/iPhone.

I looked at the specs on the Cinemin Swivel and it seems like a really neat gadget. Do you have it wired directly into an iPod/analog source, or is it hooked into the digital converter?

Tome - I'm using a Cinemin Swivel from wowwee it's made by the same people who make the Robosapien. It actually stays really cool I don't need any additional ventilation, and there's no fan so it's extremely quiet.

What type of projector is inside?

Does it overheat, or does the back leave enough room for ventilation?

I really like it. It's imaginative and very cool.
