Syndiant Wants You to Get Inspired; Holds Contest on Creative and Cool Uses for Pico Projectors

DALLAS – (November 9, 2010) –Syndiant, a leader in high resolution microdisplays for pico projectors, is holding a contest to explore creative ideas and uses for pico projectors.  Syndiant’s all digital VueG8 (“View-Gate”) technology frees consumers from the constraints of small electronic devices and provides a viewing gateway to share high resolution images.

The uses and applications of pico projectors are endless, and Syndiant is eager to see the creative ideas that techies, gadget gurus or college engineering students have up their sleeves. For inspiration, consider applications in the following areas:

  • Automobiles           
  • Airplanes
  • Smart appliances for anywhere in the home
  • Health care
  • Aids to the visually impaired or elderly
  • Security/defense
  • Toys
  • Robotics
  • Education (teachers – get your students thinking!)
  • 3D
  • Near to eye glasses – either 2D or 3D
    • See through image
    • Non-see through for an immersive experience
  • Combine with gesture recognition user interface
  • Decorative lighting
  • Wireless update of video content

“We have produced some very cool applications for pico projectors at Syndiant, but we thought it would be fun to see what individuals and the next generation of engineers can come up with,” said Mark Harward, CEO of Syndiant. “We hope to receive many unique ideas, which will make it a challenge to decide who submits the coolest application for pico projectors, but I think we’re up to the task.”

If an individual submits the winning “cool” idea,  as determined by the Syndiant executive team, he or she will receive an iPad™, and an individual runner up will receive an iPod nano™.

In the event that a college engineering class or team submits the winning “coolest idea” or runner up idea, a monetary donation will be made to their college’s engineering department.

Official contest rules and regulations can be found at

Entries need to sufficiently and completely describe in writing  the idea and its use. Graphical renderings and drawings can be submitted with the entry to more fully explain the concept.

The contest starts November 9, 2010 and ends at 11:59 p.m. Eastern on
December 15, 2010.
Winners will be announced during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas January 6-9, 2011, and do not need to be present to win. Prizes will be shipped to winners.
