The Pop Video pico projector measures at 4.4 x 1.8 x 0.6 inches and weighs around 97 grams. It is compatible with the third and fourth generations of the iPod Touch in addition to iPhone 4 and 4S and requires iOS 5 or above.

The Pop Video pico projector can be charged through microUSB and takes around four hours for a full charge.
The light engine in the device uses FLCOS microdisplay technology which is claimed to be better in energy efficiency and a lot more affordable to manufacture, thus making the device affordable.
