pocket-sized projector by Lemoptix

Thursday, September 16, 2010

Technology is taking new dimensions day to day. It has change the world to a lot extent for the last decade. The best thing i say is Mobile phone , these gadgets have seen many changes for the last few years and now it can be said as one of most powerful gadget around here.

Now you smartphones, windows mobile, andriods etc etc and imagine a mini projector attached to it which can display the images from your phone on to the wall or any other screen, sounds cool ha ....

This is done by the Engineers at Lausanne, Switzerland-based Lemoptix, a spin-off from EPFL.Smaller than a credit card and with a projection head of just 1cm3 in size, its developers claim that the device can enable documents and videos to be projected onto a wall in the same way as current fixed projectors.
This micro-projector functions using tiny mirrors of less than a millimeter’s thickness. Positioned on a silicon (wafer) disc, they reflect red, blue and green laser beams,” says EPFL research director Maher Kayal.
One important thing they say is , this miniature consume less power than the matrix or LED based technology which is currently in the market.This pocket projector works at a minimum distance of 50cm and enables the projection of images onto a surface equivalent to a 15in screen.

I have seen this sort of technology being used by a techie who came in TED conference earlier. May be this is not the same, but whatever this could be very useful especially in official purpose,Medical institutes or otherwise.

This will be available into the martket in 2011 for industrial applications and then the following year for consumer electronics, according to Nicolas Abelé, technical director of the start-up, which is located in the EPFL Science Park.
