AAXA M1 micro-projector: bigger & brighter than pico

When is a pico-projector not quite a pico-projector?  Why, when it's a micro-projector of course. Profligate pico producer AAXA have obviously decided that their latest model, the AAXA M1, isn't quite small enough to fit into the "tiny" category, but what you lose in pocketability you gain in specifications.  The M1 Micro-Projector has a native SVGA 800 x 600 resolution, 66 lumen brightness from its LED lighting, and a handy remote control.

Laser pico-projector manufacturer Microvision have been showing off their latest first-person shooter prototype, which straps a PicoP projector to a gun controller and responds to movement.  Players can physically turn around to move their in-game perspective, with the projector's "infinite focus" meaning that the picture is always crisp no matter that the distance between pico and wall keeps shifting.

Fujitsu F-04B modular cellphone with pico-projector gets played with

If you thought you'd seen it all in Nokia's Vision of 2015 video, book a flight to Tokyo and stop by Fujitsu's offices there.  They haven't seen to have got the memo that modular, wirelessly-connected mobile phones with integrated pico-projectors are meant to be the stuff of futurology, not fact, and as such have produced a working version of their F-04B cellphone.  Akihabara have been for a play, and claim it's a brilliant multifunctional device.
