Texas Instruments (TI) is demonstrating a tiny video projector that could prove small enough to embed in devices such as mobile phones. The 10-lumen "Pico" projector uses TI's DLP (digital light processing) technology, and is shown rendering a Linux desktop playing 24-bit RGB video at 60Hz.
TI's Pico projector measures a scant 2.8 x 1.6 x 0.6 inches (71 x 41 x 14mm). It accepts 5-V DC power, and uses a low-powered LED as its light source. It accepts a single mini-HDMI video input, and costs $350 as part of a Development Kit.
