Luna combines MP3 player and pico-projector
Would you like a pico-projector with that? We've seen them in camcorders, still cameras and mobile phones, now Sceptre is attempting to give a new lease of life to the dedicated MP3 player with the Luna projector/MP3 player combo.
The US$169.99 Luna projector/MP3 player uses a micro SD card to project photos and movies whilst listening to music. With a brightness of 5 lumens (the latest Microvision standalone pico-projector puts out 15 lumens by way of comparison), the Luna 100W can project up to 99-inches (250cm) with a width of up to 50inches (12.7- 127cm) in a darkened room.
The unit measures in at less than 1-inch (2.5cm) thick, weighs 2.6 ounces (74gm)and comes with standard functions like a calendar, slideshow, video, MP3 and supports a range of music, video and picture files. It comes with a 2GB Micro SD Card that can be expanded to 32GB.

\"No\" to answer your question. Rather use a small iTouch or iPad to watch movies. Better contrast and not affected (much) by indoor ambient lighting. The Pico projector would really suck in a lit room or car during the day.... And you will always need a white, flat, stable surface on which to project. Niche product with really disappointing application range.
