New Add-On Transforms Your iPhone into a Pico Projector

iPhone ProjectorPortability and projectors pretty much go hand-in-hand. Most people won’t even consider purchasing a projector unless it is easily transportable and this fact has led to the development of the pico projector. Pico projectors are pocket-sized projectors that are capable of displaying big, bright images without being big or bulky.

However, with the invention of smartphones, pico projectors are getting even smaller. Some are able to plug right into your phone, though a new, even smaller, piece of equipment has now become available.  A new tiny projector that plugs directly into the docking slot of an iPhone is capable of producing a 25″ image from about three feet away and is now on sale in both Japan and China.

The projector itself only weighs little more than an ounce and is about the size of half an iPhone. The tiny LED lamp used to project the images runs off of the iPhone’s battery and generates a 320 x 240 resolution image at a brightness of 10 lumens.

The projector is also capable of displaying iPhone content like YouTube or iPod videos as well as photos and also comes with a small built-in speaker. In addition to that, the device also comes with a small tripod and can also be used to connect an iPhone to a TV or play video from another device via video and USB cables.

The device has already been tested by some retailers who have determined that the projector works with the iPhone 4S, the iPad and the iPod Touch. The device will cost you ¥15,800 in some areas of Tokyo, which is roughly $202 USC. 100 units were sold in the device’s first shipment, one day after the initial launch with a spokesman stating that more were on order.

MicroVision SHOWWX+ HDMI Pico Projector

MicroVision SHOWWX+ HDMIIf you are one of the proud few people in your office that is still holding on to his BlackBerry, there may be something that you can hold over the heads of your iOS and Android coworkers. I’m talking about the MicroVision SHOWWX+ HDMI, the first pico projector for Research In Motion customers which will be available for sale soon.

The SHOWWX+ HDMI is said to be capable of easily connecting to a plethora of devices, like computers, mobile devices, laptops, etc… as well as other compatible pieces of consumer electronics, including RIM’s own BlackBerry Playbook. This allows you to display your presentation at more than 100″ in diagonal image size on any type of surface.

This pico projector is diminutive enough in terms of size to allow you to put it easily in your pocket and also delivers two hours of battery life on a single charge, which is more or less the industry standard. This makes the SHOWWX+ HDMI perfect for nearly any mobile application, like sharing business documents in between meetings or throwing up a quick PowerPoint presentation.

According to President and CEO of MicroVision Alexander Tokman, “Partnering with GlobalWare dramatically expands the global availability of SHOWWX+ HDMI and gives us a strong foothold into business audiences where the ability to visually collaborate anywhere is increasingly important. It’s rewarding to join forces with companies like GlobalWare to enable people to see bigger [pictures], whether they are on the road, at the office or home.”

Each purchase of the SHOWWX+ HDMI pico projector will come bundled with an iBOLT holder for the BlackBerry Playbook, allowing owners of the tablet to project anywhere they want to, directly from their tablet. Unfortunately, there is no word on pricing or availability at the moment.
