TI's Prototype USB Pico Projector Is Tiny And Potentially Awesome

I’ve reviewed a few pico projectors, and one of their main limitations seems to be input type. That is to say, there are too many input types, since they’re meant to accommodate a variety of devices. This little guy, seen at an event here at MWC, goes the opposite direction: it’s strictly USB. It uses a USB display driver and sends both image and power over the cable, making presentations or little home movies a snap.

It really is small and light, produces 20 lumens (which is more than I’d expect from it), and will support whatever resolution the manufacturer decides to spring for. Although this particular device doesn’t have a name or release date (it’s just a reference model), I think we’ll be seeing these on the market really soon.
