Tutorial- Camera Obscura Room

This is a tutorial for turning your room into a giant camera obscura.

"Amaze your friends by projecting the view outside your window onto the walls of your room."

I really think everyone should try this at lest once!

By following this tutorial you will be able to project whatever it is you see out your window onto the walls of a room with a few cheap supplies and little effort. The image spans 3 walls and the ceiling, in color. You can watch anything that goes by moving across your walls (albeit upside down and backwards). Most people have a hard time understanding just how much fun this is until they've actually seen it, so I want everyone to see it for themselves.
