Samsung W7900 (aka Show)
I posted about the Logic Bolt a while ago, and since projector phones in my mind are the wave of the future I feel required to post this bad boy. My homies over at 84/85 recently dropped a post questioning what the future of technology; although their post got into the philosophical implications of an exponentially expanding technological world, its still neat to look at the new gadgets that pop up. Projection based cell phones are the next wave. Altough everyone loves their iPhones, the ability to plaster a sharp image onto and flat or near flat surface brings the smart phone to a new dimension. With the advancement of this technology it may remove the necessity to have home computer/televisions. If you can bring all of that with you, record digital tv, take pictures and post them on and wall for personal viewing opens up the possibilities of mobile technological devices. The specs of the projector based phone - Samsung W7900 are:
Projector: 10 lumens, 480 by 320 pixels, up to 50 in. diagonal
Screen: 240-by-400-pixel, 3.2-in. OLED
