DrFPGA: DLPs are used in many professional 3-D printers, but TI is continuing to downsize them and lower their costs. In fact, there are two Kickstarter 3-D printers already funded--the cheapest is about $2000.

Loser99:Yes a DLP is a MEMS device, although much more complicated than most. DLP 3-D printers mainly use the light polymerised method, used in both consumer and industrial 3-D printers.

DLPs are a neat technology, and people are doing amazing stuff with them, not necessarily related to displays. For instance, there's a spectrometer application for environmental sensing. I think the problem with DLPs is that they are not as simple or cheap as MEMS accelerometers---the DLP eval board costs something like 5000$.

I wonder what % of them will be industrial. My guess is consumer will drive IoT deployment with Industrial lagging behind. Industrial apps usually need a couple yaerts to catch up to the newest technology (or bubble)...

Are DLP micromirror chips considered MEMs?

Where do they fit in?

they are always ignored, yet anyone looking at a projector in a theatre or business (or years ago DLP TV's) are using them.

 Seems like they are just starting to be used for 3D printing now.
