Explay announced that it will unveil the Colibri mobile-projection module with SPEckle-free LCoS laser technology (SPELL) at the 2009 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
At less than five cubic centimeters in volume, Colibri, Explay’s third-generation projection module, can project multimedia content onto any curved or flat surface.
Embedding the module will turn a cell phone into a mobile media projector.
“The market for cellular projection is currently composed of companion handheld projectors and embedded projectors. Explay’s technology can serve both markets and can be customized according to the needs of each customer,” said Daniel Oleiski, CEO of Explay.
The idea for cell phones with embedded projectors is relatively new. Logic Wireless recently released the world’s first fully functional projector phone, the Logic Bolt, at CES. The technology has yet to be perfected, with a consumer-palatable size and price the main sticking points.
