Projection Display for Small Handheld Devices
Introduction At present, the size of the display screen in handheld electronic devices is limited by the overall size of the device itself. With continuing miniaturization of cellphones, MP3 video players, PDAs, bar code scanners and similar mobile devices, display of legible information and useful images is a growing problem. Technology description Researchers at the UW have developed a projection technique that can be incorporated into small handheld electronic devices. It utilizes a scanned laser beam to project the display content on an opaque surface such as a wall or screen. Business opportunity The integrated projection device is useful for any handheld device to overcome the limitation of a small display screen, particularly where sharing information is desired. Stage of development Initial data exist for this technology. Intellectual property position This technology is available for licensing. The UW is currently reviewing this technology for worldwide patent protection.
