We seem to be hearing a lot about mini-projectors. About a month ago we reported on the Optoma Pico Projector, and there has been much ado about putting a projector onto a cellular phone.
A new development in our quest for the biggest image from the smallest projector is the Castrade Mini-LED Projector (CV-MP01). I’m not certain if the CV-MP01 is the smallest projector out there, but it has to be one of the smallest with measurements of 40 x 57 x 59 millimeters.
The Castrade has an RCA port, as well as built-in speakers. I have no idea if you can hook up the sound to bigger speakers, but the Castrade can render a 4:3 aspect ratio image at 640 x 480 VGA resolution.
That is about all the features I have on this device so far, as the source that my source uses is in another language. I do know the price stands at about 25,000 yen or $278.
It would appear that we don’t have the tiny projectors small enough to fit at the tip of a cellular phone just yet. Don’t get me wrong, because the Castrade CV-MP01 is definitely a step in the right direction as far as smaller projectors are concerned.
