Digismart turns handhelds into projectors

While companies like Toshiba and Viewsonic are hitting us with portable LED-based projectors, Australia's Digislide has an entirely new concept: incorporating the projector into handheld devices, including cellphones, GPS units and PMPs. At the Demo conference this week, the company showed off its Digismart technology, which uses a miniature wide-angle lens to project images as large as 11x17-inches from a distance of about 3 feet. The company hopes to incorporate the technology into devices and add-on components by the end of the year.
