Pocket-sized MEMS SVGA projector by Nippon Signal

Nippon signals has recently presented it's newest generation of hand-held projectors.

They are quite small (9 x 5.5 x 2 cm) but still a bit larger than the usually quotes "pack of cigarettes". The interesting part about the device is that it uses semiconductor lasers which are then processed by a MEMS scanner to produce SVGA (800x600) images in RGB colour.

The actual MEMS scanners have a total dimension of 1x1x0.5 cm each.
