Thanks to a tip from James Deaton, I am adding a new item to my wish list for Santa: A Pico Pocket Projector. Unfortunately these are not scheduled to hit the market until 2009. Perhaps the man in red can pull some strings and get an early prototype to Oklahoma?
Battery operated and fitting in the palm of your hand, according to the Pico Projector’s about page:
Despite being smaller and lighter than many digital cameras or smart phones the Optoma Pico Pocket Projector enables users to share images and videos from their media devices at up to a maximum of 60” – incredible from a device small and light enough to be comfortably carried in a pocket or handbag.
Based around the latest LED illumination advances and DLP® imaging technology, Optoma have used their considerable expertise to produce the Optoma Pico Pocket Projector to combine clear, vivid, high contrast images with a 20,000 hour lamp life, long battery life and simple operation.
These were my “road warrior” supplies in February 2007. Will a projector make it into this collection in 2009? Time will tell!
