Interesting find. Seems to be more for Pico or Business class projectors.

Maybe if the technology is viable they could license it to some major FPJ manufacturers.

"The problem of laser projectors is that they often require larger amounts of energy."

Then why use them at all?

to be perfectly honest, I have no hope for an apple projector meeting my needs.

in a long history of apple products, there's only been two that fit my needs, and only after they were jailbroken. I worry they'll do something weird like not include hdmi inputs or make you install iTunes before you can watch a BD... haha(I kid, but it wouldn't surprise me if they found some way to not go along with convention)

If Apple do ever release a projector you can be pretty sure of three things:
1. It will be white
2. It will sync with itunes
2. They will sell a ton of them regardless of how good it is
