Impromptu Presentations are Possible with the PICO Pocket Projector

Accessing the files for a presentation isn’t hard in the age of flash drives, email, and the cloud, but the actual projection of a presentation is a little difficult without an actual projector. Luckily, there’s a handy PICO pocket projector available from Optoma, industry leaders of pint-sized projection technology. Roughly the size of last year’s Android phones, the PK201 WVGA PICO projector from Optoma can literally fit into your pocket yet provide you with a way to project any and all files onto a wall for a small audience to easily see. The $299.99 price tag is a lot for seemingly a little, but the versatility of the PICO pocket projector makes it apply to more situations than just presentation

Anyone thinking that this pocket-sized projector only blasts an equally small sized image onto a chosen white wall or screen is underestimating it’s power. While 70 diagonal inches of wide screen might not be ideal for a packed lecture hall, a boardroom or other medium-to-small space with a packed house is certain to be accommodated. According to Optoma, the PICO pocket projector’s LED light source will last 20,000 hours at this high level of projection and still providing picture perfect color. HDMI, USB, standard A/V and universal VGA cable hookups allow for virtually any form of importing, whether from flash drive or laptop or otherwise, as well as assured audio through virtually any speaker system.

But let’s be real: there’s a lot more that the pocket-sized projector can be used for besides meetings and presentations. Movies saved onto an otherwise non-ideal-for-mass-viewing laptop can be ballooned up to appease a living room audience. The big game can be viewed in an optimum big screen format through HDMI when otherwise you’d be squinting your eyes during every play. Even video games can be projected through the PICO pocket projector.

If you’re in the market for a projector but aren’t expecting to pitch to a crowded auditorium anytime soon, the PK201 WVGA PICO Projector from Optoma is a good pick considering the possibilities it provides and the access it promises.  It isn’t cheap, but the portability of both presentation and projection is to some people sure to sound like a priceless advantage.

SHOWWX laser Pico Projector: Small Size, Big Big Image

While the actual Princess Leia’s famous “Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi; you’re my only hope.” holographic projection is still light years away from coming to fruition in some far galaxy, Earth’s own projection technology is constantly catching up.
