Pico projectors emerged in 2009 as a new category thanks to the convergence of three crtical factors: the white LED as an illumination source, tiny projection chips to form the image, and rising numbers of notebook and netbook users looking to enlarge the picture. Given that the big plus of these wee projectors is ultra portability, how does a manufacturer make them even smaller? One way is by removing the battery, which is exactly what Aiptek has done with the Pocket Cinema T20 LCOS projector.
The days of schlepping a hefty notebook and so-called "portable" projector are dwindling. Presentation equipment is becoming so miniaturized that you can now slide the computer into an inside jacket pocket and the projector into a shirt pocket. Such hands-free carriage is predicated on connecting two types of emerging devices: mini-notebook PCs (or "netbooks") and palm-size projectors. But do featherweight presentation devices perform well enough for you to consider leaving their larger siblings behind?
