I’ve been thinking about putting a video projector in my garage for added motivation when I workout.
I first got the idea when I saw Dave Tate’s slide show that he used for the Test Fest, played to Pink Floyd’s Brick in the Wall.
I was wondering if anyone knows anything about them and if they can be hooked up to the internet, and fed the bunch of videos I have saved on youtube, along with other slides that I might make myself.
My garage is pretty dim, even during the day when the door is closed, and I think it shouldn’t be too bright for a projector.
Anyone see anything like this before? [/quote]
I work for the Technology Services department of my college and I deal with digital projectors constantly.
What you want to do is absolutely feasible from a techinical standpoint. You would probably want a dedicated computer. Some of the higher-end projectors can connect wirelessly but often only support still frames via wireless.
Personally, it seems like a really easy way to waste the cost of a new squat rack and oly bar (even more, depending on how nice of a projector you buy).
Shit, dude, it’s your money.
And, yes, any decent projector will be easily visible in a dim garage.
If you need a digital projection of youtube videos to be motivated enough to lift… I dunno man.
