3M reveals second-gen pocket projector tech

3M MM200 Projector

3M today based its CES unveilings around an update to its MPro pocket projector hardware. The MM200 is a new variant built to be integrated into other devices rather than operating separately. While it can be used in a dedicated projector, the new liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) unit can be built into a cellphone, camera or other handheld and generates a 640x480 image at up to 50 feet away. Using LEDs helps keep power consumption down to one watt.

The technology firm is eager to stress that the display techniques of MM200 should translate to shipping products sometime in 2009, though outside firms using the projector haven't been named; at present, the power use is significantly more than for typical cellphones.

    I originally thought the headline read "3M reveals second-gen pocket protector tech."

    1w at 50 feet?

    You'd better be in a pitch-black room to see any detail in that image.
