Mobile products with multi-use features that allow employees to stay on the road to increase company productivity are needed as the competition in business grows."

In addition to the background information obtained for this patent, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventor's summary information for this patent: "The present invention is drawn to a portable multiuse projector. The projector uses a fiber optic imaging apparatus, which allows the portable multiuse projector to have the capability to image transparency paper for quick note-taking and jotting, as well as image documents on multiuse white paper. In addition, an electronic pen and water-based erasable marker can be used for immediate direct imaging on the fiber optic glass. The projector also provides for the capability to copy, scan, print and fax. Personal computers or computer components can be used to access documents or picture files from the internet or internal/external hard drive to project for immediate use during the many presentation demands of a modern office. Use of the invention with a personal computer or laptop, allows for presentations, copy, scan, print and fax from the convenience of a laptop anywhere and anytime but not required as the portable multiuse projector can work independently. Moreover, the multiuse projector of the invention is supplied with USB ports to accommodate tablet or electronic books, SD external hard drive and/or mouse or other input device usage."
