You may not know much about the company Tursion, or their pico projector aspirations but this next product I’m about to show you looks impressive indeed. I want one already. This is the Tursion TS-102 Android powered pico projector. While I do have a few complaints with some of the specs, I can already see my gadget addicted self caving in and buying one just because I can.
Remember the Samsung Beam? It was supposed to be an Android phone with a projector but I’m not sure what happened to that. What we have here is no phone, this is all projector and the specs include a odd powered 624MHz dual-core processor of some type, a lens capable of projecting an 800×600 image up to 100-inches in size at 20 lumens. Above I mentioned a few specs I wished were better and that mainly is the resolution output and the OS. We have an outdated Android 2.1 Eclair here. I can work with that but Gingerbread would be sweet.
This is where it gets awesome though. It has 8GB internal storage as well as micro-SD support for additional games or movies. Then they have a trackpad right on top of the device for controlling and navigating the projected Android goodness. With Wi-Fi, buttons for controlling Android and video playback as well as 80 minutes of battery life I could have some fun with this thing.
Currently available on Amazon but it’s priced a bit steep at $449. I’m not sure why but I totally want one.
