If this is what you're talking about, they're still on the pricey
side ... you might want to opt for goatse tshirts instead.

$499.99 Optoma Pico - World's smallest Projector

Although I see that other full-size projectors are even more expensive
with several over $2000.

I noticed that the Pico's "lamp technology" is "LED". So does that
mean you don't have to worry about cooling down the unit?
I had been told that with the larger units, they can't just be
unplugged without a cool-down first ... or else the expensive bulb
will pop and be ruined.

Given the small amount of material in these devices,
will their cost come down to $200 or less in a few years?
