There were lots of news stories and rumors about a mobile device that can be used as a projector to quickly make a presentation on the fly. But haven't seen any prototype so far until CES 2008. Here it is.

Code-named "SHOW", Microvision’s new projector is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and can project a DVD-quality widescreen 848 x 480 pixel image up to 100-inches in size!
