Overhead projector for mobile phone

Project-a-Phone announces overhead projector for the cellphone | Tom’s Hardware UK and Ireland

Project-a-Phone, a company that makes products for projection of cell phone screens, today announced the launch of the ICD-5000 Image Capture and Display system. The ICD-5000 allows cell phone owners to display the content on their mobile screen to a computer, monitor, or projection screen.

Jeremy caught this one and asked if I’d ever use it. You know what, yes, I might. If, for example, someone wanted me to do a presentation on moblogging, I’d quite enjoy walking up to someone in the audience, snapping a pic, then sticking the phone in the projector unit and showing people the moblog process live. I reckon it’s a useful product for mobile gadget conferences when you want to show live action. Otherwise I’d be using the screenshot function and putting screenshots into multiple powerpoint slides.

Only more powerful to capture the screen of a mobile device.  Nevertheless quite useful for capturing snapshots of your mobile phone and making presentations. Source: […]
