It’s funny how getting the relatives together has changed over the years. A long time ago, gathering the family meant having a meal, talking, maybe some bickering, and watching whatever might be on the television. Now, everyone wants to show off their favorite YouTube videos, or photos from something exciting they’ve done recently. This isn’t a bad thing, but it’s hard to get the entire family to crowd around one mobile device or computer screen to watch something.
We’ve seen several different phone projectors in the past, but they usually end up being somewhat expensive and bulky. The ipico is only a little over half an inch thick, weighs 3.35 ounces, and costs $130. It will only play nicely with the iPhone 4, 4S, 3GS, and the 3rd and 4th generations of the iPod touch though. This projector can toss up a display that is 50”, and uses a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that plugs in through USB. This will hit the market sometime this holiday season, just in time for you to get one for your family get-together.
