Check out the picture above. Could that be the "the world's first laser pico projector with an internal media player and storage?" That's what pico projector maker Aaxa Technology says of their latest gadget and let's hope so because it's a little costly. The Aaxa L1, which began shipping this month, will set you back around $600. Most LED-based pico's are anywhere from $250-$350.
The Aaxa L1 uses PCOS technology, which means it combines three-color laser light sources, proprietary despeckling technology, and an LCoS image to deliver a 20-lumen output at 800x600 resolution. According to the company, this eliminates the "pixilation problems" some other laser projectors have.
The projector also has a number of other notable features. It has a 20-lumen laser light source, SVGA (800 x 600) resolution, a USB Memory stick reader with 2GB USB stick included, and anonboard AVI, MP4, MP3, JPEG decoder. It reads Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF files and features composite and VGA input support. Its rechargeable battery offers about one and half hours of life.
Size-wise, it's about 4.2 x 2.1 x 0.8 inches and weighs about 170 grams with the battery. If you purchase additional accessories, you can connect the Aaxa L1 to your iPhone or iPod, Zune, Sony PlayStation Portable, and any cell phone from Nokia, LG, Samsung and HTC.
Max Hu, Aaxa's director of marketing said the projector is unlike anything it's competitor Microvision has created, "The diffused laser light allows higher brightness and classification as a FCC Class 1 product vs. a focused beam design which has eye safety issues. In that regard, our design has the potential for much brighter designs in the future, which we are currently developing."
The projector is currently available for purchase, but so far, due to the lack of laser diodes, the company only has limited stock.
