A movie projector in a cell phone?
Posted 16 November 2005 - 10:14 AM
Finland's Upstream Engineering is working on an LED (light-emitting diode) projection system that potentially could, because of its small size and relatively low cost, allow manufacturers to put projectors inside MP3 players, cell phones or other portable electronics for a few dollars.
Instead of passing around a phone to show off a video or a picture, the image (or video) could be blasted onto a wall. The picture brightness won't be as high as that of standard projectors, but it would let pictures on phones and music players escape the confines of the small screens on those devices.
The current prototype projector optical engine created by the company is about the size of a matchbox. An accompanying projector would be about the size of a cell phone. Currently, some companies make small projectors, but they are larger, about the size of a mini digital-video recorder.
