Sanwa lifts lid on dual purpose pico projector

Japanese company Sanwa has unveiled its 400-PRJ011 pico projector for the iPhone 4 and 4S. Using DLP technology, it can throw images on to a wall up to 65-inches in size with a 640x360 resolution and 1000:1 contrast ratio. Unusually, but usefully, the device will also double as a charger using its 2,100mAh battery to provide juice for a user's iPhone when not in projector mode.

In projector mode, the Sanwa pico projector can project images for up to 2.5 hours making giving it utility in small presentation situations or for watching full length movies. The device weighs just 103g, but will take around five hours to charge completely between unplugged usage.

While no US release has been announced, the device is currently on sale in Japan for the equivalent of $260. [via Engadget]

    Brookstone has had this for months

    I have one it works great! Specs are identical either they are the manufacturer or this is just an overseas knockoff.
