We love taking photos and videos and sharing them with friends and family. Portable projectors are a great way to share easily content from our devices at social events and we are always on the lookout for a better projector. We think we might have found our next portable projector in the SHOWWX from Microvision.
The SHOWWX from Microvision is a portable laser pico projector that connects to your mobile phones, PDAs, PMPs, digital cameras, netbooks and laptops to provide home-theater-sized WVGA (848×480 pixels) movie and photo viewing. Running on a rechargeable battery (which lasts about 90-120 minutes on a full charge) powered by PicoP display engine, the laser projector comes with a MEMS single scanning mirror to allow a viewing area of up to 16.4 feet.
The SHOWWX is tiny, about the size and weight of an iPhone which makes it perfect for throwing in a bag to bring to our next party. It's small size also makes it easy to find a spot for in a tiny apartment for when the device is not in use.
Already available in Australia and New Zealand, the SHOWWX has a US release date of March 2010 and is expected to retail for about $500.
