Picoprojectors coming to handsets this year, says Samsung

picoWe’ve had a bit of talk lately about picoprojecters, the tiny, low-powered projectors that will someday be fitted into portable electronics. Samsung’s taking a lead in this field, claiming that it will debut phones this year with the tiny projectors included, courtesy of 3M. No word if we’re getting these or if it’s another “Asia has better stuff than us” thing, but if we do see them this year, we’ll be excited.

Don’t expect the debut projectors to be fantastic; don’t forget that the cameras in the first cameraphones totally, totally sucked, but now we have 5-Megapixel shooters with auto-focus. In a few years, this will be the way we all watch porn.
