Palm-size Pico projectors are hitting the market in a sudden wave, able to cast a large image on a nearby wall or ceiling. Most are in the price range of $300 to $500.

Now toy-maker Jakks Pacific has announced a $99 model. The EyeClops Mini Projector can cast a 70-inch image and run 10 hours on D-size batteries. Or it can run off an included AC adapter. I expect this thing to only work in the darkest rooms. We've also no details on resolution.

Then again, it's aimed at kids as young as 8 who probably aren't videophiles, anyway, with a discerning eye for pixel detail. And they'll love the big picture.
