Apple patent for iPad iPhone and Macbook projector spied

After last summer’s murmurs of plans for an iPhone pico projector, rumours are ripe once more that Apple has plans to develop a projector system. This time the talk comes after a patent was uncovered detailing several different approaches to creating a projection system for the iPad, iPhone and Macbook product ranges.

The plans include the option of creating a brand new controller for a projection system as well as having a pico projector built in to iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Macbook designs. The patent also reveals that the projector could be built in to a network hub.

The projector system would enhance the appeal of products like the iPhone and iPad to business users. Using iWork’s Keynote software, together with a powerful projector system, they would be able to easily share and present their work.

With the iPod Touch being targeted at the gaming market, a pico projector system would add further appeal for casual gamers. Similarly, a pico system enabling users to project films and TV shows on to any suitable surface would strengthen the iPad’s appeal as an on-the-go entertainment machine.

However, as is often the case with Apple, plans to not always come in to fruition.
