How to make a movie theater with your smartphone on deployment
Being on deployment in a dangerous region means being away from your family. Most service members play soccer, read old magazines and smoke a lot of butts.
It’s not like you’re allowed to leave the FOB to hit the mall and catch a movie.
But you’re in luck, we’re going to show to how to craft a home theater out of some native materials and your smartphone.
Here’s the supplies you’ll need:
- a shoebox or a regular box
- X-Acto knife or bayonet
- a pencil or pen
- a magnifying glass
- tape and/or glue
Step 1: Place the magnifying glass in the center outside of the shoebox and trace around it with the pencil making a circular stencil.
Step 2: Use the X-Acto knife to cut out the traced magnifying stencil, then pop out the excess cardboard. Cut the lid or it will hang down over the magnifying glass.
Step 3: Insert a clean magnifying glass into the cut hole and secure it down with tape or glue.
(Note: paint the inside of the box with polish or black paint)
Step 4: Use the excess cardboard to make a smartphone stand.
Step 5: Invert your smartphone screen through the settings app then lock the screen on.
Step 6: Place your smartphone in the box, on the stand and place the lid on as usual.
Step 7: You can adjust focus by sliding the phone while it’s on the stand inside the box.
Step 8: Enjoy your favorite movies.
