Acer Shows Off C112 Pico Projector

While there  is surely a whole slew of consumers that swear by their HD (or sometimes 3D) touting televisions, many consumers have also made the switch to projectors. The benefits of projectors are obvious as they allow you to display an image larger than any commercially available television screen for, in most cases, a palatable price tag.

However, on the other end of the spectrum, many manufacturers also have a line up of pico projectors that allow consumers to display large images on the go with a device that’s small enough to fit into the palm of your hand. The latest of such manufacturers to come forth to announce a pico projector is Acer with their C112.

According to the company the C112 is their smallest projector yet clocking in at under half a pound and touting a 854 x 480 WVGA resolution, 16:9 format ratio and a 1,000:1 contrast ratio. Under the hood the C112 packs DLP display technology alongside LED lamps with a battery life of up to 200,000 hours. Another cool feature that Acer is giving the C112 is the ability to display media off of a connected USB drive meaning no PC, laptop or any other source will be needed.

Unfortunately, there is no word of a price tag or release date so we’ll have to report back when we’ve heard more.
