General Imaging's iPico Projector Coming Holiday 2012

General Imaging has recently announced the release of the iPico, a portable projector designed for iPhones and iPod Touch devices. All you have to do is insert your device into the pop-up connector on the iPico and you will be able to share pictures, videos, movies, YouTube and Facebook with anybody, anywhere and anytime. Images can be produced in up to a 50" picture with the iPico, which will retail for $129.99 when it is released in time for the 2012 holiday shopping season.

No cables are needed with the iPico as the pop-up connector is all you need to start projecting. Just slide in your device, focus on any flat surface and instantly start projecting. This is perfect for those situations when you capture the perfect video on your phone and want to show it to all your friends and family. Instead of passing the iPhone around or trying to crowd everybody around it, simply attach the iPico and show the images to everybody in a comfortable setting.

The device itself only weighs 3.35 ounces and is about 2/3 the width of an iPhone. The pop-up connector, which is only half an inch thick, neatly slides down into the dock when not in use and easily fits inside your pocket or bag. When you are using the iPico to project, the device conveniently holds your device in place and, in most cases, doesn't require removing the protective case from your iPhone or iPod.

According to General Imaging's Vice President of Marketing and Product Placement Paul Meyhoefer, "We've watched the phenomenal growth of portable devices and smart phones and have tapped into the borderline obsession these owners have with their devices. Combine the explosion of social media and the need to share almost every aspect of one's life with those around them, we believe iPico is a valuable accessory that allows these technology devotees to do just that."

Like I said earlier, the iPico from General Imaging will be available by the 2012 holiday shopping season for $129.99. It will come with a built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion battery and a USB charging cable and should be a good device for anybody who sees the need for anytime, on-the-go projecting.
