The world really doesn't need another average pico projector. We'vealready got dozens to choose from, and much like the initial wave ofnetbooks, most every single one is exactly the same. You'll find a specor two different amongst the hordes, but generally speaking, one isjust as good as another. Syndiant is hoping to stop the madness andprove once and for all that innovation has a place in our society, andeven a place in the stagnant pico projector market.

The company has joined with Foryou Multimedia in order to create thefirst high resolution pico projector that's available to the public.Unlike most of the competition, which tops out at 640x480 or 800x600 ifwe're lucky, this shirt-sized unit uses the world's first Wide-SVGAmicrodisplay. The result is a stunning 1024x600 native resolution,which easily tops the rivals that are cluttering up store shelves as wespeak. The SYL2061 doesn't seem much different other than the mightyresolution, but we're still waiting for the full specifications list tobe revealed. Still, we think this is a huge (and much needed) step inthe right direction for pico projectors, and we're looking forward to3M, Optoma and the rest of the gang to step up their own games to matchit.



“Foryou is very excited about the pico projector market. Syndiant’s 1024x600 SYL2061 panel enables a resolution that is ideal for accessory pico projector applications such as laptops and netbooks, which benefit from higher resolution. At the same time, the small size and superior color quality enable a pocket-sized device with exceptional color and brightness. The efforts of ASTRI’s R&D team have enabled Foryou to quickly prepare this prototype,” said Jefeng, Marketing Manager at Foryou.

“We are very pleased to be working with Foryou and ASTRI,” said Mark Harward, CEO of Syndiant. “The SYL2061 panel is the first in our family of pico projector products targeting higher brightness LED illuminated accessory pico projectors. Our patented VueG8™ all-digital smart panel technology allowed accomplishing this milestone – which is just the next step in our path toward providing HD resolution in pico projectors.”

That is really small. I can't imagine it would be able to produce a very high brightness... or have a very good throw distance... but then again, that's not really what these things are for.

Would be cool to slap one into a wrist watch with a microSD slot so you can display schematics, and other useful information that secret agents use... heh

Or so folks can bust out a slideshow at any given moment, Buzzkillingsworth style!

(I really hope someone gets that reference! lol)

Nice, pico projectors could become the next big accessory on portable devices such as phones or pocket PCs.

The LG expo has a pico projector attachment.

The phone has a snapdragon proc in it but I hear it's really held back by windows mobile. Should have come with Android.

Would like to see it in action with that projector tho. Pretty cool concept.
