When you're doing a lot of travelling, you'd think the last thing you want to lug around with you is a projector. Aiptek's PocketCinema V10 aims to change that perception: it claims to offer a projected image of up to 50in, but measures just 56 x 125 x 23.5mm (WDH) and weighs 160g. It's a marvel of miniaturisation and it works as advertised: it can project video and pictures directly from SD card, its 1GB internal memory, or live via the composite video input. Don't expect desktop projector levels of performance, though. Brightness is just 10 lumens, which means a darkened room is a necessity even at small screen sizes, and resolution is limited to 640 x 480. The price is high, too, at ?255 exc VAT, but for pure convenience the Aiptek is a little wonder.
