Even though the iPhone 11 just became the go-to phone, Apple is making huge moves towards the next generation in their phone line up. Leaks of Apple‘s ideas for the 12 have begun to emerge that is getting the pico and micro projector market buzzing. Yes, the iPhone 12 being the first 5G phone is exciting, but the news that is getting all of us exciting is the fact that the iPhone 12 is suppose to have a built-in mini projector.
Now, this projector isn’t going to be set up the same way we are used to setting our LED micro projectors up at home. To enable this projector instead of pressing a button the user pulls two inserts from either end of the phone and projects in both directions. This allows you to display onto the nearest flat surface to watch movies, games, or watch your Vlogging videos on YouTube. This is an extremely interesting concept that will hopefully open up more doors for the pico projector market. Our biggest concern for this is really the brightness and picture quality. Hopefully, Apple is able to bring their concept to life with enough brightness and picture quality to give pocket projectors that represent the LED Pico Projector community like AAXA’s M6, Vamvo’s Mini, AAXA’s P7, and Sony’s MP-CD1 a good name. Check out the Apple iPhone 12 trailer to see it in action for yourself.
It’s official. Somebody just made $5 off of us and gets to go have some in-n-out burger. This is probably the only $5 they will make on this app, so they better enjoy it! Micro-projector went out to the AppStore and bought what claims to be the first app to demo an iPhone with a pico projector. Now keep in mind that youtube and all videos you have on your phone work with pico’s already, but there are not a ton of apps out yet that do.
Then comes the PicoZoo app, an application with a few free pictures of animals that uses video out. The only thing it does is show these pictures using video out. We hope that people with a little more creativity start using video out in their applications soon because this app was just depressing. Really there is no reason anyone should buy this app unless you are like us and want to pay for a cheeseburger for these developers for at least adding video out to the app.
What we would like to see is for all the big games and apps to start using video out. The possibilities with this will be huge. Here are some pictures of the app in use with an Aaxa Tech P2 pico projector.
We are happy to announce that we will be getting to do an iPhone demo this week hooked up to a new pico projector. It should be a lot of fun and we look forward to demo’ing it for you soon. We hope to see you back here shortly!
