Texas Instruments has been steadily developing the mobile projector, or Pico-Projector as they are formally called.
With the goal to have a better viewing experience on your mobile devices – weather it’s sharing photos, watching movies, or giving presentations – this is an up and coming industry that Texas Instruments believes will rival the popular built-in camera phone.
