3M's tiny handheld projector has been presented to the Brits.

3M MPro 110 micro projector

3M's MPro 110: mobile-phone sized

The MPro 110 measures a mere 115 x 50 x 22mm and weighs just 152g. It has a built-in battery that's good for 60 minutes' illumination, 3M claimed.

The projector has a native resolution of 640 x 480 and can project onto surfaces between 12.5cm and 125cm away. The image is generated on a Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) panel - a tiny display-on-a-chip that emits light that's then magnified by the MPro 110's optics.

Available today, the MPro 110 micro projector retails for around £300.
