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 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.
