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 640x360 resolution and around 15 lumen output.
Check this out cause it's actually awesome. This is a concept device, integrating a Texas Instruments OMAP3530 processor platform running Android, WiFi, Bluetooth, into a lamp that takes power from any lamp. It's a lamp, but it projects Android and apps to the wall, any video. Find more information about Seco at http://seco.it

The nHD is the next generation of Texas Instruments Pico Projector DLP solutions, this time even more compact, uses lower power, will be available for an even lower cost than the current DLP based Pico Projector solutions. This will enable manufacturers of Smart Phones, of Portable Video Players, of Netbooks, Tablets and more such devices to integrate an amazing projector right into the devices without adding too much weight and cost to the devices. This next generation nHD chip will start to be manufactured by Texas Instruments in the next few months and could soon after be integrated in one of your next devices. The first batches take up less than half the volume and power consumption compared to previous Pico Projector generations, may "only" project a 640x360 image with low lumen output to save battery runtime, but Texas Instruments definitely says they could upgrade those to HD resolutions and improve the brightness of the output all the while consume less battery power.
Here's probably one of the first 720p camcorders with a built-in projector. With this you can take some cool videos and project them directly on any white wall to show friends and family, pretty cool.
