A US-based materials science technology company is planning to launch a new range of pico projector modules at the CES 2013 international tradeshow.

Mezmeriz Inc. is one of many technology companies planning to launch new products or technology at the show, which is taking place in Las Vegas this week. The company, which is based in Ithaca, New York, is planning to display a use case for a pico projector module embedded within a mobile device.

The power-efficient laser projection module is based on the company’s carbon-fibre MEMS technology and will allow pico projectors to create large, vivid screens while embedded in increasingly small devices such as smartphones, tablets and cameras.

The founder of Mezmeriz, Shahyaan Desai, said that they were delighted to be able to launch and demonstrate their technology on one of the industry’s biggest trade platforms. He explained, “We are looking forward to showing people the capabilities of our MEMS, and building new relationships that will bring this exciting new technology to the market in the very near future.”

The race to improve the quality of images that pico projectors can create has become extremely heated among technologists as more and more smartphone manufacturers are looking to incorporate the technology into their devices.
