Aiptek PCV10 Pocket Projector, $379 @ Harris Technology

23 March 2009

supposedly the world's smallest projector, about the size of an iPhone (though thicker)...

apart from the tiny size, i guess the special feature of this projector is the 1GB of internal memory so you can load pictures and video onto it and display them later without a computer... also takes SD, SDHC, MMC or Memory Stick cards up to 8GB....

obviously it isn't going to be fantastic compared to a full-size projector, but definitely handy for some purposes...

- Projects up to 50" from a distance of 1.8m
- New LED light source projects well at only 10 Lumens (different ratings as LCD)
- LED means no need to replace the bulb and instant start-up
- Runs on main charge and with Li-ion battery (45 mins on full charge)
- Integrated Stereo Speakers (1W total)
- Resolution: 640 x 480 (manual focus)
- Expansion slots: SD (max. 8GB SDHC), USB 2.0, AV input (3 in 1 Audio Visual input)
- Multimedia Compatibility: AVI, ASF, MP3 and JPEG files.
- Auto-off and built-in memory
- Package Contents: USB Cable / AV Cable / USB Power Adaptor / Li-ion Battery x 1 / Tripod / Pouch / CD manual / Remote Control
- Physical Dimensions: 12.4cm (L) x 5.4cm (W) x 2.0cm (H)

delivery is $9.19 to Sydney metro, $14.17 to Perth, or you can pick up from a business centre in ACT/QLD/VIC/NSW/WA...

    here is one sensible review of this device: http://www.computerbuyer.co.uk/reviews/242733/aiptek-pocket-cinema-v10.html bear in mind that the price at the time of review in the UK was £300, which is currently over AUD600...

    I've seen an equivalent sized one in action. They're damn small. The image they throw out is about 1/2 a meter square but the brightness is poor so you really need to be using them somewhere darkish. Bit of a laugh of a gadget. I reckon the idea will be useful in a couple of years time when they pack a whole heap more punch into them.

    Heres a review on a couple of other alternatives to the same thing. http://www.inc.com/inctv/2009/03/big-pictures-from-pocketsized-projectors.html

    i imagine that the main differentiating feature of the Aiptek is its ability to function as a standalone device...

What do you think?
