You may have a certain notion about projectors; that they're those clunky boxes used for making presentations in boardrooms. Recently, projectors specifically engineered for home movie use and ultra-portable sizes have been making waves. But...

As far as portable projectors go, we have earlier seen solutions from LG and Acer that were quite impressive. Even though you had to plug it into a wall socket, being able to carry around a 60-inch screen in your pocket is simply brilliant. However, a...

Honey, I shrunk the video projector! Optoma picked an appropriate moniker for its Lilliputian-size video projector. The Pico PK101 isn’t just small, it’s almost inconceivably tiny. It measures just 1.97 inches wide by 4.06 inches long by...

Optoma started the pico projector craze last year, scooping everyone else with this model. The PK-101 is an attractive unit with a stylish feel, created by a combination of its tiny size and shiny plastic finish. It’s the smallest and lightest...

This is the smallest projector I have seen; it is smaller than most mobile phones. However from two metres away it can display a bright clear image on any flat wall, in fact I even tried it on a ceiling but that would require you to be lying down on a...

Outside of improved brightness and resolution, I wasnt sure how pico projectors could differentiate themselves from one another, but the Optoma Pico PK-101 DLP Projector found its niche. Its great for projecting photos or video from anything you...

The pocket rocket weve been packing in our pants recently (full name: Optoma DLP EP-PK-101 Pico Pocket Projector) is one of the first mini projectors to hit the market. Its also one of the best, even though a number of flaws spill from the tiny...

Optoma’s Pico a.k.a PK101 allows you to share videos from your mobile or multimedia player on a wide screen. Its tiny size (50 x 103 x 15 mm for 115g) is only that of a bigger phone.HandlingThe device comes with a tripod, a 2.5mm to composite...

It used to be that the thought of being able to project an image from any location at any time was a concept restricted to Hollywood science-fiction movies. Now, thanks to Optoma’s latest projector technology, that gadget has become a reality....

Lets put on a show right here! Interesting concept, but nobodys quite nailed it yet. Last month we tested Aipteks Pocket Cinema, a palm sized projector with a built-in media player, but werent impressed with its image quality. We hoped for...

Well, it certainly aint home cinema, but we couldnt resist the chance to look at a video projector small enough to fit in a pocket. The Optoma Pico uses TIs Pico DLP chip, and is the size of a mobile phone. Weighing 115g, it measures 50 x 103 x...
