  • 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.

    Mini pocket projectors are ideal for any companies wanting to create something really different for their events or exhibitions. Each of your staff could benefit from having a projector with its own built in memory so you can really demonstrate your capabilities and project your company brochures, corporate video or marketing materials on a hand held projector.

    It's ideal to be able to show multiple messages without having to heavily invest in expensive plasma screens or even expensive or hard to find power sources as all the devices are battery powered and really low cost. Not to mention, how impressed will your prospect be if you just answer there questions there and then with a video, powerpoint or even marketing exposé on the nearest wall or even onto the floor.

  • Charge all your devices with one charger: too good to be true?

    Charge projectors without wires


    The Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas may have been a little emptier than usual in 2009 with only half the usual number of visitors and many exhibitors deciding simply not to attend, however there were several exciting developments which will make a difference to peoples lives over the next few months

    One such development is the wireless powermat which will bring an end to carrying lots of chargers and cables for multiple devices. It also means you'll never need to worry about picking up the wrong charger if all your chargers start to look the same.

    The matts will be ideal for travellers carrying around multiple devices such as an ipod, mobile, camera, camcorder, psp or even pico projector. Initially the matts are likely to compatible with the most popular gadgets on the market such as the iphone or major brands perhaps followed closely by the most power hungry gadgets.

    To date the one drawback with wireless chargers has been that multiple adaptors have been required to ensure compatabilty which means carrying around a stack of adaptors which is only a minor improvement on carrying lots of chargers in the first place. The beauty of the wireless power matts is that the batteries themselves have "sleeves" attached to them which can either be either retro fitted or embeded during manufacturing. Thus, all you have to do is place any compatible device onto the matt and through near field conduction the batteries are charged as normal with no cables or plugs in sight.

    This will be great for road warriors and we're really looking forward to seeing them in operation for the mini projector market as although these devices have a very respectable 2 hour battery life it would really be a bonus to be able to charge up several spare batteries at once on a power matt. Hopefully the manufacturers will incorporate these options into the next generation of pico projectors and we'll soon see them in projectors such as the 3m micro projector or the Aiptek Pocket Cinema V10.
