A high-quality image projector on your smart phone?

The technology hasn’t arrived yet, but micro-displays from Micron soon could make it possible to use smart phones to project high-quality images anytime, anywhere, CNET reports. That’s one of the many potential promises of a new micro-display technology from Displaytech, a recently acquired division of Boise, Idaho-based Micron. Known as FLCOS, or fast liquid crystal on silicon, the technology is designed to make it possible to project from a relatively small form-factor device, and with high image quality and vibrant colors, just about anything you’d want–from a movie to a PowerPoint presentation. The technology is still in its prototype stage, but it has interesting implications for education. And by late 2010 or early 2011, there’s a good chance that the thumbnail-size chip behind the micro-display could begin to be embedded in commercially available smart phones, like the iPhone…
