This device is probably best described as a star projector for kids, and this is reflected in the overall toy-like design of the device which closely resembles R2-D2 from Star Wars. That being said, many parents use this projector as an educational tool to help their children discover the many wonders of the universe. The brainstorm planetarium can be used in 2 different ways.
The first way is the planetarium mode which projecteur Galaxie rotating stars and constellations into the room. It creates an “outdoor space” atmosphere in your children’s room, but it can also be used as a night light to comfort and soothe your child while they sleep.
The second way to use this device is to simply project still images onto the wall or ceiling. The device comes with 3 interchangeable slide discs, each containing 8 images, for a total of 24 space images. These images are various images taken in space by NASA and the Hubble Space Telescope.
While this modest home planetarium won’t blow your mind, it’s a great little gadget: it’s easy to use, very affordable and virtually silent. We can say with certainty that this projector will certainly please any young person dreaming of one day walking on the moon.
At the top of the unit, you will find 3 control buttons and two openings. The large aperture projects a rotating star pattern that can be used to give children some calming down time before bedtime. The smaller one projects images from one of the 3 interchangeable discs. You can display a clear view of the 50 available images of astronauts, spaceships, planets, nebulae, galaxies and other deep space objects. The apertures are surrounded by a focus ring that allows you to control the sharpness of the image depending on the distance between the projector and the wall or the ceiling. At the bottom, you will find a storage space for the 3 discs.
