Flash drive-sized projector anyone?

Sure Optoma's Pico projector is now available but purchase, but who needs all that added bulk? (/sarcasm) Word has it, Konica Minolta is developing a pocket projector no bigger than a flash drive, with dimensions said to be 1.6-inches long, 0.79-inches wide, and 0.3-inches thing.

Capable of projecting a 20-inch picture from a 21-inch distance, this little wonder uses laser beams and vibrating mirrors instead of the conventional bulbs and lenses.

Besides that, there's really nothing, not even a concept sketch. However, Konica Minolta says that this thing will be on the markt in the next 2-3 years. Oh joy!
