I’m sure if you’re an avid TikTok user, you already know about the many trends that arise from the app. One of the latest trends that are going viral on the app is the “Fake Window” Challenge. How it works is very simple and anyone can do it, so long as you have the right tools (hint: projector?)
What is the “Fake Window” Challenge?
The “Fake Window” challenge is exactly as the name states, a fake window. This is done by using a projector in your room to project a video of a fake window. This gives off the appearance that the view from your bedroom could literally be anything! During times like this when it’s normal to stay home, being able to have a change of scenery in the comfort of your bedroom is great.
There are two things you will need for this challenge to work:
- A fake window video/gif(can be found on the internet)
- A projector (doesn’t need to be something fancy)
Finding the best “Fake Window”
Do a quick google search and you’ll be able to find a lot of different fake window images. Most people usually use videos to give off that super-realistic feeling where they can not only see but hear as well! These videos can easily be found on YouTube, here’s a link to one:
The Best Projector for YOU
There isn’t necessarily a perfect projector for this challenge to work. Obviously, some projectors are overall better than those that aren’t nearly as good, but people shouldn’t be limited to expensive choices. An example of a good projector at an average price would be the AAXA BP1 Bluetooth Speaker Projector ($155 USD).
AAXA is well known for its PICO (portable and mini) projectors, making their projectors a perfect example of this type of challenge. We wouldn’t want to have a super big projector bringing in heat when doing this challenge (especially since summer is just around the corner), we want to be able to show you something that affordable and convenient! The BP1 Bluetooth Speaker Projector as the name states is a mini projector and a speaker at the same time. This portable projector will get you the best of both worlds in terms of picture quality and ambient sounds to soothe you while you lay near your fake window.
Another contender that would be great for this challenge is another projector from AAXA, the P300 Neo 420 Lumen Pico Projector($294 USD). With its sleek design, lightweight, and native 720p resolution, you best believe you’ll have an amazing experience with this mini projector, not just with the “Fake Window” challenge but with many different uses as well! This mini projector is great for the challenge especially if you’re looking to have it running without being plugged in. Wait, did I forget to mention that it has a rechargeable battery? Well, that’s a bonus in itself, you won’t be limited to a fixed location and you can place it anywhere you want since its keystone function will allow you to adjust the vertical angle from where you place the projector.
So what are you waiting for? Go get a projector and download the best “fake window” image or video you can find, and let us know your results!
