Panasonic make 'world's thinnest' laser projector

A prototype projector by Panasonic is claimed to be the world's thinnest. Demonstrated at CEATEC 2012 to Engadget, the laser projector measures 7.5 millimeters (0.29 inches) thick and can project an 800x480 resolution image at 100 lumens. The use of a laser, instead of an LCD filter other projectors use, allows the image to be displayed without needing to refocus a lens. A future release date and the potential price are currently unknown.

Mars rover checks in on Foursquare

Curiosity, the NASA rover, has checked in to Foursquare on the planet Mars, the first from another planet. The rover checked in while inside the Gale Crater, and will continue checking in when it reaches other key locations in its mission. Foursquare has created a Curiosity badge for check-ins at scientific locations on Earth, and will start being issued to qualifying users later this year. NASA is extensively using social media to publicize the mission, the Twitter account for which has over 1.1 million followers.
