The big news this week was the leak of the next generation of the iPhone. It seems somebody from Apple left it at a bar and Gizmodo got their hands on it. While the OS is locked securely enough that nobody can get it to operate the hardware gives some big clues to the new features. There is now a camera in the front of the phone and the back. This leads us here at Micro-Projector to believe that iChat, with video chatting, will be a key new part of the iPhone. We can’t wait to see whether or not Apple includes Video out with this feature so that our pico’s can show off the person we are chatting with.
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.
