During SID 2007, I was given a demonstration of Explay‘s oio, aÂ laser & LED-based hybrid nano-projector. The picture quality wasÂ surprisinglyÂ good despite being generated from a projector the size of a deck of cards. Engadget just posted a blog stating that Explay’s oio Companion will be showcased at the Mobile World Congress that will be held next week, Feb. 11 through 14,Â in Barcelona.
The laser & LED hybrid structure allows the picture to be in focus all the time.Â I am quite certain the prototype that I saw last year was battery powered and it should be since the oio Companion will be used mostly in on-the-go and mobile office situations. Those who are in sales that need to make frequent presentations and often in not-so-large meeting rooms would find something like Explay’s oio Companion a lifesaver. In addition to having a diminuative size and being lightweight, the nano-projector allows the business traveler to forgo larger notebook PCs and simply carry the smallest and lightestÂ (with a usable keyboard).
