3M's micro-projector is tiny, awesome

Peter has checked 3M’s MPro110 projectorette out and he says it’s pretty great. It displays up to 1280×768 (via VGA or RCA cable) at a size up to 50″, but with such a small light source that’s probably pushing it. The LED bit is said to last 10,000 hours, which isn’t saying much (that’s just how long LEDs last) but at least you know you won’t be replacing some expensive-ass bulb after a month or two.

This really isn’t the kind of thing you want for a home theater system, obviously, but it’s tiny, it works, and it costs less than $350 on what we like to call “the street.” It even runs on a rechargeable Li-ion battery and not AAAs or something weak like that.
