Introducing… The Pico-Projector

mobileinnovation1Problem:
Mobile multimedia capabilities are increasing in uptake and potential, but the small form-factor we so desire in our handsets are beginning to inhibit a rich user experience.
The typical mobile screen size is 320×240.

Solution:
If your mobile has a pico-projector, it will be able to emit high-res imagery onto any suitable surface, up to 50″ in width.
This unlocks the full immersive power of your mobile web browser, 3D games engine, DivX movie player or video conferencing.

Market Readiness:
Pico-projectors are already on sale as stand-alone units, though are yet to be implemented in mobiles, PMPs or laptops.
The first of these hardware mashups will be on sale in the East by the end of this year, but it’ll likely be another 18 months before they reach Western shores.

Potential:
Aside from the new opportunities for deeper engagement with content and software on the mobile platform, the largest socio-cultural change will occur once people begin to share their mobile experience.
Picture regular consumers using the real world as a medium for virtual interaction.
Location-aware video advertising anyone?

Why I wanted to blog…

This is my third blog.

The previous two are over at http://thebrainfarm.blogspot.com and at http://thememestream.blogspot.com.

I have wanted a third blog for a long while now, since there have been ideas and images that I have felt I’d really like to share. The older blogs are rather too ‘young’ to continue in the same thread, as my mind has developed since they began. Feel free to check them out to get a better idea of where I am coming from.

So, WordPress eh?

Looking forward to a fresh start and a fresh set of capabilities. I’ll be trying to mobile blog, tweet, and feed my Last.fm music through to whoever lands here. Lets see how Web 2.0 I can make things whilst keeping the blog on the readable side of vibrant.
