As long as you're not printing at ultra-high dot density, the results are surprisingly good (though you still need a pitch black room).
The Aiptek PocketCinema V10 is a new pocket-sized micro projector which can project a 50-inch image from various media.
It is currently being shown at Computex 2008 and can playback photos and videos directly from Wii, iPod or other media devices via a 3-in-1 AV jack
As well as direct streaming, the device can playback or display media from its 1GB internal memory or via an SD, MMC or MS Pro card.
Many formats are supported including AVI, JPEG, ASF and MPEG-4 and comes packed with a built-in battery and stereo speaker.
The projector utilises revolutionary projection technology from those innovative geniuses at 3M.
That's the theory. And the demo (Microvision is a legit company -- I used to know its founders -- but let's not forget the "Demo" Corollary of Clarke's Law)computron9000 wrote:It will be interesting to see if the microprojector technology takes off. Unlike all the crap on cell phones, if you could dump media onto them and shoot a 50" image onto a relatively lit room and it be visible, that'd almost be as cool as the Star Wars hologram communicators.
Like most portable projectors, it's not fantastic for viewing photographs and video which have a lot of detail in dark areas, but in most situations it performs well.
As expected from an Epson projector, color is superb. When using photographic content, colors are vivid, accurate, and well-saturated. Subtle nuances are not lost between differing shades of the same color, and there was no evidence of gradation artifacts.... (Conclusion) Great color makes photography presentation a joy....
