Connect Your Smartphone to an 11-Inch Screen, Expand it Up to 60-Inch Projection with LightPad

With the abundance of Lapdocks for smartphones, the Motorola Atrix 4G for example, it’s not hard to use your phone as your main device for work and business related affairs. QP Optoelectronics looks to add their hat to the ring with LightPad; a folio-style peripheral combines a keyboard with an 11-inch rear projection screen at a resolution of 854 x 480 resolution through the built in pico projector. This is only for the first generation model as, future models will have a 1280 x 720 resolution.

This built in projector will also flip to create a 60-inch display and will cooperate with any smartphone that has an MHL or HDMI port. This makes it quite useful for business folk who may have to give a presentation or two and don’t want to lug around an extra laptop. While we aren’t able to play with this hands on yet, it debuts at CES 2012, we have a video that will demo some of it’s features. Check it out after the break, and let us know, is this something that would be useful to you?
