Upcoming Apple iPod Touch to have Pico projector? Small cap company Microvision has seen their stock price jump today after anonymous sources claimed that the upcoming Apple iPod Touch will include a Pico projector from the company.
The Pico projector, used in some phones and digital cameras, allows for owners to display their pictures on walls and other surfaces right from the device.

Sources claim the the addition of Pico projectors to the next-generation devices has been confirmed by channel checks in Taiwan.

Please be reminded this all speculation for the time being, but Microvision's stock has jumped 19 percent so far on the rumor.

Apple is holding their annual September Media Event tomorrow.

That would be pretty cool if it does.

I'd rather have 720p recording but this is okay too.

A iPod with a built-in projector? I don't expect Apple to release something like this unless they have a camera like the iPhone 4's (with 5 megapixels, LED flash, HD video recording etc.) in the next generation device. But anyway this would be a great addition to the iPod Touch and I'd love it if this really is to happen.

I have been waiting five years for Microvision to make this happen. Yes, they have their portable (kind of) device but to put this in phones and other mobile devices is fantastic.

Now, when am I going to get those Microvision glasses that allow me to use my computer on the go? They could have cameras, gyros, a compass, etc. and allow navigation, 3D movie viewing, heads-up displays, etc. Perhaps the CPU would be an Android phone-like unit that you kept in a pocket.

Dear Microvision, Please make this happen! :)

I need to start a small tech firm and then start a rumor that Apple wants to buy it...

Dear Mr. Jobs
Give the people what they request. The Microvision projector in their mobile devices.
