3_rThe pico projection thing might be getting a little out of hand. Sure, the projectors themselves are cool, and it’s hard to say no to cute accessories like this thing, but with pico projectors planned for phones, media players, and now little camcorders, things are getting a bit… projectionable.

According to Digitimes
, the DigiLife DDV-JF1 being shown at Computex has pretty much got it all:

Life Technologies, under its DigiLife brand, is showcasing a DV pico projector, the DDV-JF1. The DV features a 5-megapixel CMOS sensor, H.264 video compression, 30fps frame rate at a resolution of 1280×720 and a 2.5-inch LCD display. However, users can also project the image using the integrated pico projector. Projected images can be projected up to four meters away at a maximum size of 50-inches. The projector support Q720P(640×360) resolution and has a whiled LED backlight at an 8 lux brightness.

640×360 is a better resolution than the pico projectors we’ve got, and it’s also exactly half the 720p resolution, so it’ll be a clean downrez. The more I think of it, the more I’m convinced that it may actually be a good thing to have. With a good amount of storage, the thing could be a great all-purpose media device. No, no, what am I thinking of?! This is nauseatingly excessive! Isn’t it? I can’t decide.
