Konica Minolta projector

Konica Minolta has released specs on a tiny projector it is currently developing, according to a Wednesday report. Measuring 20x40x7mm (roughly 0.8x1.6x0.3 inches), the unseen prototype requires less than 1W of power and can produce a 1024x768 resolution, 20-inch color images when positioned about 20 inches from the screen.

Red, green and blue lasers are used as light sources that take aim at 2mm micro mirrors. The mirrors are vibrated by piezoelectric elements and move horizontally and vertically, and were used instead of a 30kHz projector lens. Konica Minolta is reportedly planning on bringing the technology to market by 2010 or 2011.
