Sony unveils world's smallest projector

If only I had bigger pockets...

We're still a while away from a pocket projector, but Sony's new pint sized offering isn't far off the mark.

At 410cc it fits easily in the palm of your hand and would tuck away into most brief cases or handbags. The projector uses 14 LEDs as its light source, which means it will draw a fairly small amount of power compared to traditional projectors which generally use a high power bulb.

The LEDs provide a full spectrum of colour, producing red, green and blue light. Sony has stuck with three LCDs in favour of moving to DLP technology, even though DLP is a lot brighter. Sony has done some refinement to the setup of the components in this tiny projector, but it can still only manage 58cd/m2 on a normal projector screen.

However, the company has developed a special screen that allows for a brighter image, but only at a 20 inch surface. This might not be too much of an issue, as the Sony projector only offers a maximum resolution of 800 x 600, something it shares with DLP powered LED projectors.

There appears to be only a single D-sub input and the projector is powered by a small external power adaptor. So far no model number, pricing or release date have been announced. ®
