So it sounds like the first application of these projectors could be to replace computer screens with small projectors that can create a large display anywhere. A small camera (already incorporated in the smartphone) could be used to monitor the position of a pointing finger and create a full size "touchscreen".

Looking forward to see this technology commercialized for all the mobile phones. It will be really cool to project from mobiles.

There is a smartphone picoprojector on the market already, at least for the iPhone. Check out Pop Video, here's a review of it. This thing looks great. http://www.picopros.com/article/review-pop-video-projector-micron

This opens up more endless possibilities. I wonder how long it takes until we see this on the market.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
