Not sure if this is the place to put this post, but it seems to make sense to me.
I'm currently working on a project, and for it i need micro projector. I am wondering where i can buy a projector like one of these.

like the projectors they put inside cell phones.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the list,

is there anywhere i can buy the raw materials, such as the piece form the picture i posted. I'm trying to build something which would have a small space for a projector. I know they fit these things in cell phones now lol theres got to be a way to find the raw parts.

Here's an evaluation kit for only $2,000; http://www.microvision.com/pico_projector_displays/picop_dev_tools/pek.html

TI has a developer kit for $349: http://www.ti.com/tool/dlp1picokit

I have been unable to find a source of raw modules.  It looks like the manufacturers are only interested in large orders or something.

Current price is $89.99 with free super-saver shipping.
