3M Announces Tiny Projector for Road Warriors



Although I'm on the road a fair amount lecturing, I'm fortunate in that most of my speaking is done at major dental meetings where everything is setup for me. I have the huge advantage of just plugging in my MacBook Pro to the system and everything is ready to go. I have a lot of respect for those people that setup those rooms as well as those who have to do all the setup themselves.

However, for a lot of people (especially those in sales) this is a luxury that doesn't happen much. I can't imagine what it would be like to be forced to lug around all the things necessary to do a presentation. Of course, the major weight and footprint would be created by the projector.
However, take a look at the picture above! That is a fully functioning computer projector from 3M. The 3M Pro110 uses an LED instead of a standard bulb and connects to the computer via USB.

I don't have hands-on experience with this unit, but from what I've read, it's designed for smaller presentations (like those done in a small conference room) and not a large room. The image quality at this point in development limits the usage to these smaller areas, but for those on the road and giving presentations to small office groups, this may be just what you've been looking for.

More details can be found at the company website.
