LG Phone with Projector

LG phone projectorOn great idea leads to another. Want to know the inspiration for the latest LG phone with projector, otherwise known as the LG eXpo ?

It started with this cool looking device. This phone has definite geek appeal. And I’m not even sure what you would do with such a device but, it seems there is never any shortage of creative new ideas.

LG Electronics hosts a LG mobile phone and LG refrigerator design challenge, and one of the runner up’s designed a phone, media, mobile projector strap-on multi purpose phone, projecting device – LG Phone with Projector.

LG phone with ProjectorI imagine a device like this could be used for all sorts of ideas, including impromptu business presentations, multi-media, video conferencing … LG hasn’t announced whether they will proceed with manufacturing this product either.

But, this neat looking gadget might have been their inspiration for this new device: their newest mobile phone that WILL be hitting the market through AT&T. The LG eXpo is the LG phone with projector.

This phone runs on Windows Mobile 6.5. You can attach a small pico projector to the eXpo that allows a larger image of what’s on the screen to be projected on to the wall. The phone has a 5 megapixel camera, Wi-FI, and a MicroSD card slot for adding more memory. This phone is really cool – I could imagine all sorts of great applications – especially the impromptu business presentation. Take a look at this YouTube commercial:

I saw that commercial earlier today and almost thought it was a spoof. I originally thought the spoof might be related to the tussle between Verizon and AT&T over the 3G map commercials.

While the projector add-on might be a cool gadget I’m not sure it’s really practical. What would the better life be for such a device?

Cheers!

Yeah I also think that this idea may be unique and creative but it not looking practical.This new technology can be the inspiration for many upcoming gadgets.

It would be a great gag to bring the LG phone with projector to a movie theater. Well, maybe not. Also, I am not sure about the amount of wattage in that bulb (computer projector bulbs are very bright and hot), along with the size of the small lens’ projected image. Those are specs worth checking out before buying.
