Crunchgear‘s Peter Ha has a very quick video hands-on with a prototype pico projector from Texas Instruments. The little LED-lit projector has been stuffed into the case of a Blackberry Curve — sans the innards of the phone itself. That means we’ve got a ways to go before seeing these projectors in actual phones, but miniaturization being what it is, we can’t be more than a year or two out from watching modestly sized videos beamed directly from our gadgets.
I’m very excited about this technology. It’s not a game changer, but in certain circumstances — hotel room stays, sharing media with a small group of friends in a bar — it could be a great feature.
