LP-XL50 Sanyo Ultra-short Focus Projector

Sanyo LP-XL50Ah, the latest in projector technology is here and with a decidedly clever twist:

Japan’s electronics giant Sanyo unveils a new ultra-short focus projector "LP-XL50" in Tokyo. The LP-XL50 can project an image to fit an 80-inch screen from a distance of only eight centimeters (3.2 inches) from a range of positions and surfaces due to its new optical engine technology.

The resolution will be 1024 x 768 and is aimed at computer use rather than home theater use. I’m sure this will last about thirty seconds after the devices are released in the states come December.
