Not exactly on topic with robots... but still very, very cool.

It baffles me how that much light could come from such a small package.

I read about this maybe two years ago, probably well before the prototype was made.

I was floored when I read about the possibility of making a projector this small, now I'm even more floored that they were actually able to create a production run of the product so soon!! I can't wait to annoy the person sitting next to me in an airplane with watching the latest 24 episode on a projector, haha!

About this "not" being on topic of robots, what is cool is cool imo Tyberius, and this definitely fits in that category! Besides, we don't only focus directly on "robotics" topics, just technologies that could somehow be applied to robotics. I could totally see a projector of this size being useful in robotics, especially robots in office & schools;)

Nice find!

What is cool about laser based technology is that it's always in focus.
