How crafty Aussies are creating the ultimate date night with a $99 gadget from the post office 

Creative Australian couples have started curating their own at-home cinema experiences with a $99 gadget you can purchase from most post offices.

With very few new movies screening at cinemas across the country because of COVID-19, families have turned to projecting their old favourites on walls in the home for a theatre-style experience.

‘Thank you to whoever posted about the $99 iBright Screen Projectors from the post office,’ one woman wrote on Facebook.

She combined that with a $55 Chromecast – a digital streaming device – and a $25 floating shelf from Bunnings – to balance the projector on – to show off her latest Netflix watch, all from the comfort of her bed. 

‘The sound and picture quality is amazing, I would definitely recommend doing this,’ she said. 

Others who were searching for a new TV abandoned looking altogether after they purchased the projector.  

‘Our TV has been fading and getting white spots so we have been looking for a cheap new one,’ said one lady online.

‘All of them have been out of our price range so we ended up buying a projector from the post office. Then we went to Spotlight and bought a blockout roller blind to use as the screen.’

She showed a picture of her contraption, which is approximately two metres wide, and can easily be moved outside for ‘BBQ movies’.

‘This is such a cool projection. I’ll have to look into this,’ said one person in reply to the projector owners.

‘Thank you I just jumped on and bought one! Can’t wait to try it,’ said another.

A third added: ‘I’m sold. Forget the new TV this is what I need’.
