While the pico-projectors that have graced the SlashGear test bench have not exactly proved entirely disappointing, they've not persuaded us to part with our own money after we've sent them back.  bTendo's MEMS-based scanning laser pico-projector module might change all that, promising brighter colors, improved power efficiency and no need to manually focus.  PicoProjector-info got some hands-on time with the bTendo modules, and as you can see in the image here, the laser technology (on the right) easily outclasses a standard LCoS projector.
