Ultra Small Lenses Could Turn Future Smartphones Into Portable Projectors

What if the size of your Android's screen didn't matter? What if you could project Youtube videos and games from your Android to a wall or screen? One company, called Alps Electric, wants to turn the dream of portable projection into a reality.

Alps Electric has created a micro-projector lens that is so tiny, it can fit on the tip of a pencil. The tiny lens named FLGS3 has a light transittance of 73% and can operate with wide-angle laser diodes. Alps Electric claims that the FLGS3 is the smallest lens in the industry. Their small size makes them excellent candidates for use in smartphones.

I think it'll only be a matter of time before someone finds a way to integrate a mini projection system on an Android. Certainly the idea of being able to beam images from a smartphone to a wall is incredibly exciting, and it would make it a lot easier to create amazing prototypes like this
