Kodak releases a new bunch of compact pocket video cameras, including the very compact Kodak Playfull targetted at women that go clubbing, Kodak PlaySport Zx5 which is waterproof and shock proof, and the PlayTouch which has a 3″ touch screen and external microphone input.
This is still awesomely cool, now they call it Falconbird, and now they have a prototype camcorder (that requires 4 HDMI outputs to output the 4K2K video, but they still don’t want to mass manufacture it.
In the future, every camera, every phone, everything will integrate built-in projectors. Basically to make a big screen on any wall or table out of any pocketable device. It uses the new nHD pico projector technology by Texas Instruments at 640×360 resolution and around 15 lumen output.
