General Imaging's ipico

Sometimes crowding around your smartphone to show people your best shots of the day can be a bit of a nuisance. A new projector from ipico may provide the solution.

General Imaging has designed a new hand-held projector called ipico which connects to your iPod Touch or iPhone and projects your images and videos onto the wall for all to see at up to 50 inches.

To find out more about how to project your images and the projector’s compatibility with different devices, please see the press release below from General Imaging.


Press release:

Building on its continued success in the digital optical market, General Imaging introduces ipico, a sleek hand-held, pico projector with a patented pop-up connector that turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a genuine social media tool. The ipico, allows you to share videos, photos and movies easily in real time and project them larger than life on virtually any surface.

Made for iPhone and iPod touch, ipico makes it fun to share your favourite moments, from photos and videos, to movies, Facebook and YouTube while on the go. No cables needed, simply pop-up the built-in connector on the ipico, slide your device into it, focus on virtually any surface, and instantly project your world to the world. Gone are the days of friends and family crowding around a small screen, the ipico was made to let you share your memories virtually anywhere and up to 50-inches (127cm) in an optimal dimly lit room.

Portable enough to take anywhere, ipico weighs only 102g and is about two-thirds the width of an iPhone. At only 17mm in depth, the ipico’s pop-up connector slides neatly down into the dock when not in use and easily fits inside a pocket or bag. When projecting, it holds your iPhone or iPod touch in place and usually does not require removing the protective case from your device.

“We’ve watched the phenomenal growth of portable devices and smart phones,’’ said Gary Banks, General Imaging’s Commercial Director. “Add to this the popularity of social media and desire to share experiences, and you’ll see we have the perfect conditions for launching this ‘must have’ product.”

The ipico will be available in late November at around £149.99. It includes a built-in, rechargeable Lithium-ion battery and USB charging cable. The ipico hand-held projector delivers bright, colourful images in qHD resolution and is made for the following models: iPod touch (3rd and 4th generation), iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.

Made for iPod and Made for iPhone signify that an electronic accessory has been designed to connect and has been certified by the developer to meet Apple performance standards.
