Question
Dear Vipin

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_camera http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_projector

Are there Products available in the market which combines the functionality of  Digital Camera and Video Projector ?.

In case not available, is it feasible to construct/manufacture this dual functionality product ?.

Do you feel there are advantages in combining both the features of Digital Camera and Video Projector in a single product ?.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Hi

There are some models in the Sony Handy Cam lineup, which allow you to click Still Images & take videos, whilst allowing you to project the Images & Videos. There is a built in projector in these Handy Cams, which can project an Image/Video up to a 100 inch (diagonally).

The demand for such devices is not very high, which is the reason there are only a few available. The reason could be the fact that the quality of projector in a small device isn't as good as a proper projector. Since a smaller size is important to keep the device portable, the quality isn't as good as a standalone projector. Also, the high cost means that there is a very small percentage of customers who would buy such a device.

The obvious advantage would be an all in one device, but till the time the quality of projection is not great and the cost high, there is little reason for mass success for the product.
