Thanks to HDMI out, there are more than a few ways to get out smartphones to display content on the big screen. Apple is also making it even easier to wirelessly stream content to the living room with AirPlay, and there are a ton of different solutions for doing the same on Android. However, the LightPad from QP Optoelectronics aims to be more of a mobile solution, acting as a laptop sized display and projector for your smartphone.
Essentially the size and look of your average notebook, the LightPad has an 11″ 854×480 rear projection display built-in (the company is planning a 1280×720 res for the second gen). That same pico-projector also flips around and is capable of projecting up to a 60-inch display out front.
The accessory is compatible with pretty much any smartphone that supports HDMI/MHL out, offers up to 7 hours battery life and has a full-size keyboard. This effectively turns your iPhone or iPad into a full-fledged notebook and portable projector, which is ideal for gamers and office types that need a bit more screen real estate when away from home.
No word on pricing, but the company will be showing off more at CES 2012 next month. Below is a video of the device in action:
