AAXA Technologies P1 Jr. Pico Projector Breaks Cover

As far as pico projectors go, they all may look somewhat similar, but you can never just have one. Or, wait, is that something else? AAXA isn't a newcomer to the pico projector market. In fact, they're probably one of the larger names in the industry, and when they release a new model, pico projector fans listen.

Ordro HDV-D350S pico-projector HD camcorder outed

Ordro HDV-D350S pico-projector HD camcorder outed

Ordro isn't a well-known brand for camcorders around these parts, but the company's new HDV-D350S is looking to grab some headlines by virtue of its integrated pico-projector.  The D350S records up to 60fps 1440 x 1080 video or 12-megapixel stills, but also has a removable pico-projector attachment that slots onto a mount on the top of the camera; that can project up to a 60-inch WVGA picture.

LuminAR digital desk-lamp wins $15k innovation funding

LuminAR digital desk-lamp wins $15k innovation funding

Remember the LuminAR digital desk-lamp that used a pico-projector and gesture/glyph recognition to create a digital workspace?  The chances of seeing a more polished version hit stores has just climbed a little, with the news that the MIT graduate responsible for the concept, Natan Linder, has just won Audi's Tony Stark Innovation Challenge.  Winning the competition - a tie-in with the Iron Man movie franchise, which features several Audi cars - nets Linder $15,000 to further develop LuminAR.

Or, maybe make it even more nuts. Here you have, for lack of a better phrase, a ridiculously small, full-featured projector. And, sure enough, Samsung managed to find a way to make features actually work inside, so check out the rest of the details after the break.

LuminAR digital desk-lamp packs pico, camera & gesture UI [Video]

LuminAR digital desk-lamp packs pico, camera & gesture UI [Video]

We've seen combinations of pico-projectors and cameras used for new interface systems before - perhaps most memorably the wearable "Sixth Sense" computer - but MIT Media Lab researcher's Natan Linder's LuminAR is perhaps the first to include an angle-poise robot too.  At its core, the "LuminAR bulb" is a pico-projector, a camera and the necessary electronics combined into a standard screw-mount, capable of projecting an interface onto your table or wall and tracking touch and motion gestures you make toward it.  When screwed into a robotic arm, however, the whole thing gets even more impressive.

3D pico-projectors gather steam: glasses-free by 2012

3D pico-projectors gather steam: glasses-free by 2012

It's 3D all round with pico-projectors these days, as the companies behind the pocketable display devices try to catch a hold of the 3D gravy-train.  Sydiant have taken the easy route for their SID 2010 demonstration this week, taping two regular pico's together with a polarizing film in each; viewers wearing standard 3D glasses see the projected image in three dimensions.  Meanwhile, Aiptek have confirmed that they're planning both glasses and glasses-free pico-projectors for launch over the next couple of years.
