And we thought projectors were getting small when they were the size of a Mac mini! Light Blue Optics has created a micromini projector that's the size of—wait for it—a matchbox, and it s going to be used with a cellphone. Its secret is new PVPro technology, an automechanical process that s adept at scaling lower resolution images to higher resolutions. PVPro can also take care of pesky annoyances such as keystoning. These capabilities come in awfully handy when you're trying to project a video image onto a nearby wall with a cellphone.

Light Blue Optics is determined to make it easier for cellphone users to share photos with friends and comfortably watch movies on a screen that's considerably larger than a postage stamp. Pricing and availability haven't been announced, but the company will present a PVPro evaluation kit at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona next week.
