View Full Version : Matchbox-sized Laser Projector

02 February 2006, 03:01 PM

"Light Blue Optics Ltd (LBO) has developed a revolutionary technology for miniature laser projectors ( dubbed PVPro™. Today they announced their latest demonstrator unit, which is only 3.78 cubic inches in volume, and is similar in size and shape to a typical matchbox.

Projectors based on PVPro technology can be used to display images from a range of mobile ( devices, including laptop computers, personal media players like the video iPod, digital cameras and even mobile phones.

LBO has developed unique laser-based projection technology, which uses computational algorithms and novel optical techniques to allow miniature lasers to display video images in real-time using the diffractive nature of laser light. This overcomes the size limitation of conventional projection techniques, allowing projectors to be smaller than ever before. Understand that there is no glass, no prisms, NO MOVING PARTS, and no need for fans to provide heat dissipation. In addition, it runs on less than 1.5W at full power and less than 350mW while displaying typical video images (50% average pixel amplitude. There is also an infinite focus, meaning that no matter how close or far away, there are no optics to adjust for a clear picture."

Wow! If these cost any less than $300 it would be my next gadget to buy for sure.
