3M’s Personal Projectors at The Gadget Show

3M LogoPowerpoint and data projectors have become synonymous with business presentations and I dread to think how many people I have bored over the years. As with almost any technology, the data projectors have got smaller and cheaper, but this was the first time I’d seen how small personal projectors had become. As you can see from the photograph, most would actually fit in a (large) pocket.

3M Pocket Projectors

3M have a range of seven projectors, of which four were on show at The Gadget Show. Unsurprisingly, the different models have different capabilities and there’s more product information here (not all the new models are on the site yet), but I was genuinely impressed by how good the pictures were. The NEC is not a darkened room and yet it was easy to see the presentation or film that was being projected.

As you’d expect the different models have different features; battery size, wireless connectivity, in-built memory and a new model, the MP220, runs Android (it’s the one on the left side of the photograph). I chat with Peter from 3M about the new additions to the range.

3M Pocket Projector Allows Shooting And Sharing Of Video

3M shows off their new pocket-sized camcorder / projector called the Shoot and Share.  In this video you can see the hands-on demo of video shot on-site and projected to a big screen image from this tiny device.  The Shoot and Share is about the size of a cell phone, but slightly thicker.  You will also find out a bit about 3M’s plans for their future in this market.

The Shoot and Share is debuting with an MSRP of $299 and is available for immediate shipping.  Although the Shoot and Share is not yet shown on the 3M Pocket Projector website you can find it on Amazon.
