What we think
Pico projectors have so much potential to be used with technology such as this. They have already been combined with other technologies (the Adapt 450 Pro includes on board digital TV) and the opportunities are endless.
The number of outlets this could be used for is astounding too. If it were to be used in schools, students could interact with the subject in a whole different way for hands on learning.
Businesses could share and update information quickly and easily, a portable touch screen for business on the go.
And even personal use, the popularity of portable devices such as the iPhone or iPad have already proven that there is a high demand for information on the go. And lets face it, you would look so much cooler using this.
Our favourite bit? Definitely when he flicks the information onto his computer screen!
