ViewSonic today announced a new high definition, “Made for iPod” DLP front projector. The ViewSonic PJ258D features a top-loading dock for fifth-generation iPods, eliminating the need for a computer to project video content.

“Mimicking the sleek design of the iPod and weighing less than 4 pounds, the PJ258D is a portable powerhouse ideal for teens, young adults, home theater enthusiasts, and business professionals looking to bring the benefits of their digital media content to any environmentfrom living room walls and basements, to well-lit hotel rooms and conference rooms,” says ViewSonic.

Sweet!  I want one.

One thing that I find silly about this… Most of the videos on iTunes are pretty low quality. Why beam grainy movies into a high definition projector?  I would also imagine that the location of the dock is a bit inconvenient, seeing as most projectors used for home theater are mounted hanging from the ceiling.

I must say though, If I was shopping for projectors and my choice was between this one and a comparable projector, sans iPod dock, I’d choose this one just for the cool factor alone.

This is a company that is cashing in on the craze, while just taking it way to far.

This product has gone beyond the limits of practibility.
That is just my opinion
