The sort of sponsored bollocks that passes for science reporting in the Daily Mail makes the front page of Slashdot. I know the front page of Slashdot isn't run by the world's most incisive editing team, but come on!
That's what makes it special.
Laser projector? How can you project a raster image using a inherently vector system?
I don't get it. How does it know how big the pixels should be?
(Or maybe it's obvious and I just need a beating with the clue stick here)
The light from the three RGB lasers is scanned in rows just like the electron beam in a CRT. To sweep the angle, a tiny mirror flexes very fast. The technical challenge for these projectors has been switching the mirror fast enough and getting decent performance from miniature red green and blue lasers. I think the blue one was the tough nut to crack.
