  • What Is The Smallest Image I Can Project?






    Want to know the smallest size image your projector can create?

    Most traditional projectors struggle to project anything less than A4 size images whereas the Pico Genie range of projectors can project ultra small images as low as 12cm x 12 cm in sharp focus with an ultra bright image just 10cm away from the screen.


    Here is a contrast of the Pico Genie P50 Pro projecting at 12cm square versus the A4 standard image (45 cm away).

    It’s ideal for artists or anyone wanting to use a projector for creative installations in small places as the projectors are not much bigger than match boxes and have good battery power as well.


    The Pico Genie P100 is also very popular with artists and used for installations in museums and visitor attractions around the world or for creative pieces hidden inside sculptures.

  • Taking a ride with the stunt cars

    We visited the Toys for Big Boys Show this weekend in Dublin which was an interesting mix of electronic products ranging pocket projectors to the usual remote control helicopters as well as some other products you really wouldnt expect to find at the show such as candles, chocolates, make up artists and fortune tellers.

    Pocket projectors were very thin on the ground at the show although there were some interesting mixes of projectors with DVD hi fi, projector camcorders and even kareoke projector machines.

    We had great fun at the event arena where we took a ride with a drifter car and sampled the bikers wall of death.

    We had a great time riding in the specially converted drifer cars and took a ride with Mike who showed us how to spin a car around a car park.

  • The Perfect Pico Accessory: Aiptek all in one HD Camcorder, HD Still Cam and Web Cam

    Aiptek HD Camcorder / HD Still Cam / Webcam


    The Aiptek Camcorder AHD C100 a great 3-in-1 gadget offering high quality HD video, a web cam and excellent HD still pics. Its quite a unique gadget with good value for money at £99 plus its simple to use and provides excellent video/picture quality, portability and pico projector compatibility. It also syncs perfectly with Aiptek pocket projectors providing instant playback without the need to use a PC to convert video files.

    If you haven't bought a video camera in a few years you will be impressed just how small and light these devices have now become, not to mention the value they offer. The last camcorder I bought was a few years ago and it cost £600 and its staggering to think this £99 camcorder offers better picture quality, is far lighter and much easier to operate. The ability to use SD cards to hold video footage also makes it very easy to record and store a large amount of video on high capacity HD cards.

    A key feature of this camcorder is its simplicity and ease of use, in fact even your Grandad could easily operate this device as there are only 3 buttons and the menus are childs play.

    SD card with USB


    The AHD C100 is similar to other devices such as the flip cam which is also very popular due to its simplicity. Whilst the flip cam uses a flip-out USB stick to transfer content from one device to another the Aiptek AHD can take advantage of folding SD cards which transform into a USB stick. Thus you can easily transfer not just to a PC but to a whole range of devices including cameras and pocket projectors. This also means you benefit from wireless connection so there's no hunting high and low for that cable with the right ending to fit the camcorder!

    Aiptek Pocket Cinema


    One of the best features of this Aiptek camcorder is it's the perfect accessory for the Aiptek range of pico projectors as it syncs perfectly between both devices. Compatibility between Aiptek devices means there is no need to convert video files on the PC prior to watching them. Simply press record on the camcorder and then take the SD card out and slide it into the Aiptek Pocket Cinema (V10 or V10+) and the video will playback instantly on the projectors 50" screen. This is great for quick and easy playback, especially if you've just taken a video and need to play it back to a large group. It would be ideal for training, education, learning and development. Its also possible to connect a cable and playback in real time so you can record your friends doing karaoke down the pub and play it back in real time onto a large wall! Also great for weddings, so people can record content cheaply during the day and then easily play it back later.

    Project without wires or laptop


    Connectivity is also good and it comes with all the cables you would expect to playback video on your TV. If your looking to upgrade your webcam as well then this would be a good solution too as its simple to connect directly to the laptop/pc.

    To find out more visit www.personalprojector.co.uk where the product is available for £99 and can also be bought as a package with the Aiptek V10+ and folding USB/SD card.

  • Aiptek T20 Pocket Cinema Projector

  • London Lite reviews pocket projectors

    London Lite, Thursday 28th May 2009

    The popular London newspaper, London Lite, reviewed a number of pocket projectors in its recent technology round-up of the latest hot gadgets.

    The London Lite review covered a number of pico projectors including

    - 3M Mpro 110
    - Aiptek V10+
    - Adapt Pico Projector
    - Aiptek Docking Station

  • Aiptek V10 Plus with Record & Store

    Aiptek V10 Plus


    The new Aiptek V10 Plus is the first pico projector to offer a Record & Store feature...this bascially means that each time you pass through any video through the projector it will record it directly onto the units own internal memory (2GB).

    Now you might be thinking why on earth would I need this feature.. well apart from the extra memory (1gb) you get with the V10 Plus model its well worth using the Record & Store feature to SHARE content with friends and colleagues.

    Imagine you're down the pub and you're friends have just come back from the holiday of a lifetime...let's say they've been on safari they can now project 50 inches high onto the pub wall their own version of Big Cat Week. Let's say there was a comedy moment where the lions decide that your friend looks like a nice lunch and starts to give chase while your friend's videoing the experience, then you might want to share the clip with others too...so you just press record on your projector and it stores it ready for you to play your own copy back later and share with others.

    Whether it's business or pleasure this really does open a great new way to share videos from iphones or mobile phones equiped with video-out, DVD's etc.

    For business users, if you already have a large number of videos on your website or on your laptop then its a great way to show them to your customers and targets and for you to share content both inside and outside your organisation.

    Obviously copyright protection is in place so you cant start recording your favourite blockbuster movie straight onto the device but there is so much publically available content on You Tube now surely there are hours of fun to be had out of this great new projector and for business users it's one extra way to differentiate yourself with wow factor video sharing.

  • Learning Technologies Exhibition Olympia: Don't feel like a Donkey

    Personal Projector will be at the Learning Technologies exhibition, Olympia this week to demonstrate to trainers and the L&D community how mini projectors are revolutionising learning technologies.

    Be a Pack Horse No More


    Trainers around the country are starting to buy into the concept of using pocket projectors instead of having to lug around more equipment than a donkey. Now instead of having to carry the projector, power supplies and different cables for each device trainers are beginning to switch to one device that simply fits in your pocket. They are ditching the laptop and projector and having informal training sessions with small groups of users and shooting from the hip...quite literally.

    If you're regularly on the road then these types of device can be invaluable, as not only are they easy to set up with only 4 seconds on and off time but it means as a trainer you're 100% certain that you have the content you need at the ready immediately and are not having to rely on the venue for anything, including power or worrying about compatability of devices or even whether or not if the projector you've booked is actually going to turn up so you can start the session on time.

    Shoot From the Hip


    The real advantage for most trainers seems to be that they can use the device on any surface or wall and it's also a great way to enhance people's attention as the device really creates a wow factor and heightens attention spans. Although this will wear off for the longer training sessions it's certainly useful to know you can present your company, brochures, videos, artwork etc just about anywhere to try and get your message across in a different way.

    A noticable trend with mini projectors is that with the growth in web books or Netbooks it means trainers can carry around huge volumes of information on a very small laptop yet carry with them a very small projector like the 3M micro projector and project up to 50" so they get the best of both worlds.

    Representatives from Personal Projector will be at the Learning Technologies Exhibition, Olympia 28th and 29th January so if you'd like to shed that pack horse feeling contact them on 0845 121 8800 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              0845 121 8800      end_of_the_skype_highlighting begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              0845 121 8800      end_of_the_skype_highlighting for a demo.
