This may well mark the first time that I’ve ever even heard of an MP5 player. And this means something, because anyone who’s been here for a while knows I’m scouring the net hunting up newsy bits on a weekdaily basis.
But I’m reading about the Yinlips YDP800, which promises to be the first MP5 player with its own internal projector. Here’s the salient I got from the source:
On paper it can project up to 12 lumens, play 64-bit games and supports NES, GBA, GB, GBC, SMC, SFC emulation. Weighing in at just 300g, it also sports a 3.5-inch LCD display, infrared remote, and support for 16GB microSD cards.
Twelve lumens isn’t anything big and fancy, no mistake there, but considering that you can take it anywhere and the thing likely runs on batteries? Now that’s no small feat.
Price and release data are still up in the air, but from what I can tell it’s an “on the order of soon” sort of affair, so look for the projector you can take anywhere coming soon.
