MP3 player with projector
A Hong Kong company called Sunlink, using technology from iView, claims to have produced the first portable commercial product in the world with a built-in pico-projector. The Sunview PMPP is a portable media player that normally relies on a 3.5-inch touchscreen, but can also display images on a wall using the integrated pico technology. Companies such as MicroVision have been working to produce such projectors, but have not so far got them into any commercial devices.
The Sunview stores files on an SD slot, and due to its use of Windows CE 5.0 and Office Viewer, can play photos, movies and presentation files. A remote ensures that users do not have to sit nearby for control purposes. The Sunview is said to already be out in China, but in limited numbers.
