The smartphone of the future may have its own tiny projector. For now we have the LightPad, a mixture of keyboard, projector and virtual mouse. This is a smaller alternative to the Motorola Atrix of last year. Get a closer look at this smartphone accessory here in this informative article.
A New Gadget From CES 2012
If you want a much bigger display for your somewhat small smartphone screen, LightPad is good alternative for you. It is a new accessory for the smartphone that can make a display up to 40 inches ( 101.6 centimeters ) in size. It also comes with a more personal display that makes it resemble an ultra notebook. The display is without a frame around it, which can be attractive for those who prefer clean and modern look.
There Is Respectable Clarity For A Projector
The LightPad is created by QP Optoelectronics and works by hooking up to a smartphone with an HDMI or MHL connector. The screen of the LightPad itself is not made of LCD. It is similar to a small projector screen and receives the output of a lens that is incorporated into the keyboard-projector unit. The size of the screen is 11 inches and comes with a respectable resolution for clarity. The numbers are 854 by 480 pixels of power.
A Dual-Use Accessory For Smartphones
The lens assembly can be turned around to make a projection television or kept on the screen. If kept on the screen, the manual keyboard will make this smartphone accessory seem like a laptop. The LightPad comes with special software to make a virtual mouse appear on the display as well. You can play racing games using the screen, with the user turning the smartphone in their hands while watching the action on the LightPad screen.
A More Powerful Version Is In The Works
QP Optoelectronics has a higher definition version coming to market presumably after this their first model. The second model will be able to handle high definition video or graphics with 1280 by 720 pixels of resolution. The second generation LightPad may be able to throw a 60 inch projection on a wall or other screen. The battery in the current version will allow the LightPad to operate for five hours. There is no price yet declared for this smartphone accessory and it is not yet on the market. It is expected to ship before June of this year. An unofficial price of $300 dollars has been announced.
