The days when you only viewed holiday snaps on your camera’s tiny built-in display are dead. Why? Because Nikon’s launched the world’s first compact camera featuring an integrated projector.

That's a pretty cool feature, but suprised this hasn't already been done in the past. In Japan they have had them in mobile phones for a while...Most phones have a camera, but suppose this is just the first compact digital camera to have it.

No mention of it, so I hold my breath for the announcement that its actually a laser based projector - would be much cooler, not to mention more practical.
Google for 'laser pico projector'.
I have little doubt that the resolution will be VGA or less, this is an interesting step forward but I would rather just pass the camera round.
Paris, because she knows how to project an image.
That's actually a good idea in a world where gimmicks seem to be dominating the world of digital cameras.
Amazing. Does the camera/projector also support video, or only stills? If it does then I am definitely buying one!
