US Patent 7164811 - Pocket-pen ultra-high resolution MEMS projection display in combination with on-axis CCD image capture system including means for permitting 3-D imaging
A small portable “pocket pen size” projector/image grabber device for allowing an individual to gather, share and exploit information in a projected format in real time, day or night, with other individuals on demand. An ultra high density MEMS mirror display array provides a 1024×768 line projection display. An on-axis 512×384 color CCD imager is also included resulting in a digitally-aligned image capture and overlay display capability. A sequentially-addressed three color chip laser and low cost plastic optics provides full color high resolution bright displays for group viewing. 3-D color imaging is also provided by a binocular attachment to the device which permits the capturing of three-dimensional imagery.
United States Patent Application 20080284894 Kind Code: A1
A device capable of image capturing and image projection includes a housing, an image capturing module, an image projecting module, and a control unit. The image capturing module is mounted to the housing and is operable to capture an image. The image projecting module is mounted to the housing and is operable to project the image captured by the image capturing module. The control unit is mounted in the housing, is coupled to the image capturing module and the image projecting module, and is operable to control operations of the image capturing module and the image projecting module.
