DLP projector that can fit on your fingertips

Share this on social media:

Texas Instruments demonstrated a prototype of a DLP (digital light processing) projector small enough to fit on your fingertips at the 2007 CTIA Wireless convention this March.

The device could prove to be used to provide a larger, clearer display for mobiles, digital cameras and portable media players, allowing users to share videos and graphics. In addition, the picture will not fade or yellow with time.

Texas Instruments current DLP-based pocket projectors are already being used in products from Mitsubishi, Samsung and Toshiba. The market is set to increase even further, with Pacific Media associates predicting more than one million units to be produced by 2010.
