i commented on it with this site that might be useful as news. dunno if it is or not but its relevant.

summary: aaxa released the l1 laser projector before microvisions showwx and it looks like users have received them already. there are pictures of it in action here:

20 lumens and only 800 x 600.

I love the concept, but this is a pretty weak product.

It's so incredibly dim, I can't imagine it being useful in day to day situations

for day to day use, its more of a small group presentation tool with images not over 3ft wide with office lights... with any projector, it will be somewhat washed out but the laser technology is supposed to be more badass in the colors. Lasers will appear brighter than said 20 lumens. I got mine in over the weekend. I like it a lot. I'll write a review and link it latre.

Very cool concept, but for now I think I'll stick with my BenQ Joybee GP1 (http://www.benq.com/products/Projector/?product=1493&page=specifications) for a mini-projector.

But still, I'm really excited to see how this advances. Smaller, clearer, and (eventually, I hope) brighter projectors will be very neat. Being able to project with perfect clarity at multiple distances is awesome.

I've had mini-projectors that use the white LED as well and the image quality on the laser is just so much better. It "feels" brighter...but its probably a perception thing because of contrast.

The focus thing is amazing.
