Generic Mini USB pico projector is cheapest in the land

Generic Mini USB pico projector is cheapest in the land

There is a lot to like about pico projectors in theory, but in use, they leave a lot to be desired with the tech available today.

AAXA L1 laser pico-projector: focus-free but madly expensive

AAXA L1 laser pico-projector: focus-free but madly expensive

Pico-projector company AAXA have outed their latest model, and the L1 carves a niche for itself by using LCoS laser technology rather than the more usual DLP.  The AAXA L1 is capable of projecting up to a 20-lumens 50-inch picture at 800 x 600 resolution, and thanks to the lasers it's all focus-free: no frustrating focus wheel to twiddle, just point and go.  In fact it can even project clearly onto curved surfaces.

Light Blue Optics launched their Light Touch projected display technology back at CES 2010, but the majority of the video demos we saw were performed in relatively low-light environments.  Obviously the team are braver now, since they've taken their prototype - which uses a laser projector to create an image, and sensors to track finger-movement around that image - over to show to Robert Scoble.

AAXA M1 micro-projector: bigger & brighter than pico

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.
