Question
Dear Prof Steve

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
Hello Prashant,

Are there Products available in the market which combines the functionality of  Digital Camera and Video Projector ?.
I doubt it very much. Digital cameras tend to be light and fit easily in a shirt pocket. Projectors have to have a bright light to project the image on a screen. I've never seen one that didn't have a power cord. Such a combination would not have any of the advantages of any digital camera I've seen.

Do you feel there are advantages in combining both the features of Digital Camera and Video Projector in a single product ?.
Ahhh, no.

I hope this helps,
Steve

Expertise

I would be delighted to help with questions up through the first year of college Physics. Particularly Electricity, Electronics and Newtonian Mechanics (motion, acceleration etc.). I decline questions on relativity and Atomic Physics. I also could discuss the Space Shuttle and space flight in general.

Experience

I have a BS in Physics and an MS in Electrical Engineering. I am retired now. My professional career was in Electrical Engineering with considerable time spent working with accelerometers, gyroscopes and flight dynamics (Physics related topics) while working on the Space Shuttle. I gave formal classroom lessons to technical co-workers periodically over a several year period.
