QP Optoelectronics Co. Ltd. announced that it will be demonstrate its novel LightPad product at the CES 2012 exhibition in Las Vegas on January 10-13. The built-in pico projector lights up the screen with a resolution of 854 x 480 in the first generation model, with a future model promising the same display size at a high-definition 1280 x 720 resolution. The built-in projector also flips around to create a 60-inch display, and will play nice with any smartphone that has an available MHL or HDMI port (iOS, Android, Win, Blackberry). Connected with a smartphone, the LightPad provides virtually all functions of a notebook computer for an individual. This is mainly thanks to a rebirth of rear projection using a pico-projector.
The high gain and high contrast rear projection screen provides for a high quality display. The LightPad is versatile and truly enables your smartphone for all applications. QP Optoelectronics plans for mass production of the LightPad in mid-2012. For more information watch video below.
