    Well, I still am unsure how to hook it up with my droid (but i'm told it can be done). I went with the most expensive aaxa l1 laser projector model because spending the crap ton of money on a droid wasn't enough.

    This is one that has onboard storage as well as a USB hook up for flash drives...this leads me to believe that I might be able to run a usb to mini usb somehow...I'd just need the proper software developed for droid. Does anyone know if there is something out there?.

    Right now i'm just using the USB flash as a way to put things on to the unit and easily carry around for presentations/video. It comes with an 8gig so I might upgrade the flash stick and put movies and stuff directly on there. Kinda wished I could use the droid's internet for youtubing stuff instead but it works for now.

    I snapped a couple of pics of it in action. It is pretty fancy. Lasers are supposed to be the **** in projection. It cost me a crap ton of money...lol. but the image is stellar. good colors and quality.

    *edit* here is the product page if this info helps http://www.aaxatech.com/products/l1_laser_pico_projector.htm

    If anyone has questions about my camera, that was expensive, too.

    I think retail is $599 for the projector, if that is what you were referring too. Which BTW is some James Bond ****, super awesome display of how far technology has come. :icon_eek:

    Can that projector access from a storage device or not?

    Edit: Never mind, I didn't notice the pics earlier.

    If you can somehow try to connect it with one of those WD TVs, it might be possible. LOL

    Maybe I'm confused, but if this thing can play video from a standard USB stick, is there some reason you can't use the stock USB-microUSB cable that came with the droid and enable the mount on the droid side? It should be able to play videos right from the microsd assuming it can handle the codecs.

    No. Assuming the projector can handle 16gb SDHC USB devices, and the video you're trying to play is in one of the formats supported by the projector, you don't need your droid to do anything except sit there and act as a USB device.

    I think he's wanting to stream youtube etc. This could be done but given the headache that enabling FMRadio has given the devs I doubt that it will ever get done unless you want to pay someone $100,000 to create the necessary libraries etc.

    If the droid is lacking the hardware to make video out possible, no amount of software will fix that.

    If that's what the OP is really after, then the WD TV Live suggested above is a good choice as long as you don't mind carrying around some extra gear and finding an AC outlet to plug it into (and setting up a network share on your phone).
