CTX MiSEETX Mini-Computer with Projectors
The CTX MiSEETX is an interesting new mini pc with a built in display projector and keyboard projector. Is this the computer of the future?
The Future of Mini Computers?
The CTX MiSEETX Mini-Computer is a fascinating new computer. It looks very futuristic but it's due to be available to buy later in 2012.
The concept is a mini PC which has a small touchscreen embedded and a pico projector for projecting a larger image.
The MiSEETX also includes a keyboard projector so you don't even need to plug in a keyboard.
This makes for a very compact portable computing solution. This could be the first step towards having easy access to a full-featured computer while traveling very light.
It's a cool concept and I'm sure early adopters will come up with some fun ways to use this innovative device.
MiSeeTX Mini Computer Video Demo
The MiSeeTX has an Intel Atom 1.2GHz mobile processor (as used in tablets and other mobile devices.) It runs Window 7 so you get a full PC experience.
The built-in Pico Processor has a brightness of 80 lumens which is at the top end for a portable Pico projector so should perform well. The projector is embedded in a hinged section of the device so it can be angled as needed.
On the top of the device is a 4.3 Inch LCD touchscreen which can be used on the move. This is a key difference between the MiSeeTX and pico projectors with Windows CE or Android built in.
The built-in virtual keyboard is another novel addition to this device. You could add a standalone virtual keyboard to other pico projector devices, but having one built in is much more convenient.

The MiiSeeTX has a full Windows 7 operating system so it can be used for many business and office tasks.
You can watch movies on the projector or the small LCD screen.
You can also plug in external devices like a games console for big screen gaming.
This device is an innovative portable office computer and a interesting option for business and leisure travel. And of course it's a cool new gadget for people who like to try out new technology concepts.

MiSeeTX Release Date
When is the MiiSeeTX available?
When is the MiiSeeTX available? There is no official release date at time of writing, but the MiSeeTX is expected go go on the market in 2012. This isn't just a concept, it is close to production.
How much does the MiiSeeTX cost?
The official MiiSeeTX price has not been released yet, but there are reports that the MiiSeeTX will cost around $600.
This seems quite reasonable when a higih spec Pico Projector costs around $300, a virtual keyboard costs over $150 and a tablet PC costs $200 and up.
