Should You Buy A Projector For Fun Activities With Kids?

By XGIMI Tech - 2022-09

Introduction

Kids today now have access to smartphones, LED TVs, and other devices like laptops and tablets, to keep them entertained. Smart projectors are also great devices that kids can use to have fun and stay entertained. 

XGIMI's HORIZON, Halo+, Elfin, and MoGo Pro+, are great projectors that have large screens on which kids can have fun with games and also learn using educational tools. They are also equipped with eye-safety certification, making them ideal for kids since they consider their eye health. In this article, we will discuss how smart projectors help kids stay entertained and protect their eyesight.

How Do Projectors Protect Your Kids' Eyesight? 

Devices like TVs, smartphones, tablets, and laptops are all LED light sources and are not beneficial to the eyes as the light enters the eyes directly. Staring at the light emitted by these devices is similar to staring directly at the sun. As a result, using these devices causes eye fatigue, strain, and blurred vision. It may result in throbbing headaches and insomnia, which are detrimental to your health in general. 

Projectors, on the other hand, are advisable for kids' viewing as they do not cast their light into human eyes directly. Instead, they cast their light source onto a screen or wall before it enters the eyes through diffused lighting. Viewing a projector is similar to staring at the moon as it reflects sunlight. As a result, smart projectors help eliminate direct exposure to blue light, which is harmful to the eyes.  

Another way projectors maintain kids' eye health is by casting on large screens, allowing viewing from any angle and corner of the room. So your kids don't have to be too close to the display to see, thus protecting their eyes from the light source.

How Can Kids Enjoy Using A Projector?

Apart from the eye health benefit that projectors give kids, they can also keep your children entertained with the following activities: 

  • Learning new things: Kids enjoy a whole new learning experience with these devices as they provide a more interactive and immersive learning experience. Kids can effectively use tools like ABCmouse, Duolingo, Homer learning, and Big Brain Academy on projectors to learn new skills or languages. 
  • Game nights with friends: For parents who do not mind their kids enjoying video games in their free time, projectors come with large screens and multiple connections like HDMI, USB, and Bluetooth to easily connect gaming consoles such as PS5 and devices like tablets and smartphones to enjoy excellent gaming sessions with friends. 
  • Movie/cartoon marathon: Casting movies on a large projector screen is an excellent way to keep your kids thoroughly entertained during birthday parties and movie marathons without putting their eyes at risk. An outdoor projector can also allow kids to watch movies in the backyard without being directly exposed to LED light. 
  • Bedtime stories: Your kids can get a more exciting bedtime stories experience with a projector as they can follow each story you tell through pictures and videos displayed on a large screen. 
  • Take art lessons: Smart projectors can also help kids learn how to paint and draw as they can take art lessons and even stream videos from smartphones and tablets.
