    The Optoma Pico Projector is the size of a USB Stick, i saw this at the RM Seminars recently, looked pretty good.

    You mean literally pocket-sized, the size of a mobile phone? I have one at home that I use to watch DVDs on, it cost around 200. It sits on the floor or one side of my lounge and projects on to the wall the other side. My lounge wall slopes inwards and curves somewhat, so I don't know how well it really copes with keystone issues on a flat wall. It doesn't do full VGA resolution, but is fine for DVD. It is quite dim - I have to turn all the lights off to watch it. It gets too hot in operation to hold, but seems to run the length of a DVD okay, and you can mount it to a standard tripod. I'd say more of a gimmick than a useful tool right at the moment.

    Tough choice with those two - I favour 3M as a brand, but the Optoma one is brighter. That could be perfect proof of the build quality though - if they can make a brighter projector for less, it makes you wonder what corners they cut...
