Texas Instruments has been showing off its pico-projector technology for some time now, but it looks like it's finally making its way into a finished product, with Young Optics announcing that it expects to ship the first such projectors "by the end of second quarter or the beginning of the third quarter." In addition to the core TI technology, the projector makes use of a DLP chip and an LED light module, which pumps out a whopping 7 lumens of brightness while consuming just one watt of energy. No word as to what they'll cost or exactly where they'll show up, but cellphones seem to be the likely prime candidate, given Texas Instrument's past demonstrations of the technology.
