The DLP technology almost replacing the LCD projector technology. TI made this achievement.Also they further progressed and reduced its size and improved the performance. These Pico projectors are comfortable to use in small meetings with a easy projection of about 20 inches size in a normally lighted room. In a dimly lighted room it can project up to 40 inches size.

I would love to see pico-projectors in commercial aircraft. The simple overhead light directed to each passenger's lap space (can I claim that as a new phrase?) could be replaced with a pico-projector that could work as either a light, or a projector directed at the fold-out tray to make a secondary display. Enable touch sensing for the tray (capacitive sensing or perhaps using a camera placed near the pico-projector), and now you've got a virtual tablet. If the aircraft has displays in the seats, these two displays could work like a scaled-up Nintendo DS system. -Mark Valentine

What is best available resolution and what is lumen output? I wish it soon achieves HD capability.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
