Idea for a "Projector-Laptop"

This one came up a couple of days ago during a presentation (involving a conventional Projector) at work, and applies a breakthrough technology (not yet deployed as products) to another area.

I came accross this article a while ago, reporting that Seimens Researchers have developed a cell phone with a built-in projector . This surely is a super cool invention that promises to make life a heck of a lot easier for those busy business guys constantly having to setup bulky projectors, and my hats off two the guys at Seimens. But, I was just wondering if this might be one of those scenarios where the value of an invention is increased by simple re-using the technology in a different application.

In short, if it is possible to integrate a projector with a cell phone without significantly increasing its size or sacrificing portability, couldn't the same be done for Laptops?. I think yes! (Listening laptop makers? Maybe whose names start with a "D" and have 2 "L's" ;)).

As always, please feel free to beat the crap out of me, on this one ;-)

This time its for real

Yep... I hope to stick to my promise this time and resolve to try and post something new more frequently. For those interested in knowing, I've been preoccupied with way too many things over the last few months, but when all the dust settled (!) I had ended up in a new job ( one that I have always hoped to work as ) in the company I've always dreamt of working at and in the place I've always wanted to live in . This will be my second job outa school and allows me to apply as many of my skills as possible.

Well, enough of that, with all the basics in place, its time to get back to the more serious stuff :P(Notice, I've already changed my location information here from Santa Barbara to San Diego)

Wish me luck! :)
