We have seen convergence taking tremendous leaps and bounds over the past 5-7 years. Before that we would have never imagined camera in a telephonic device. No one would have thought about emailing from a camera or watching movie in an internet tablet. But it has all happened and it is still happening. Just when we thought that the convergence has reached its limits and no more feature can be integrated, down comes the picoprojector from Microvision.
I am on a tour to find strange mobile accessories (like the MVH) and picoprojector could easily top the list. Code-named SHOW, the projector could be integrated with any portable device like Mobiles, Laptops, iPod or PSPs to project images onto screen using laser assisted beams. As the device uses laser, the projected image is always in focus. At 50 inch range, they projected the best quality images and it was good upto 100 inch range. Now you can carry just your mobile to any presentation or just show off your videos to your friends using pico projector. Unofficially I heard from unconfirmed sources that Motorola has already signed up with microvision to integrate pico projectors in their upcoming line of mobile phones. What more do you want? Now you can watch TV, Movies, Images, etc… from your mobile and project them on a bigger screen base.
Hang on; I just got hit by a thunderbolt in my gadget-infected-techpositive-convergenceCorrupted-noGood-brain 2.0. I could buy the gorillapod and with my N95 8GB in its paws, I could project the movies using the Pico-Projector (SHOW) and connect it to the graffiti covered Tin Can mobile speaker and assemble my very own nifty flashy jazzy
