Remember that Digitimes report that said Apple was going to be putting together some kind of projector device in 2010?  Well, if Apple were to do something like that, they’d probably want to patent it like crazy, right?  

Patently Apple today looks at a another projector patent from Apple that states that a projector could not only be put into an iPhone or MacBook, but also in an Airport Express type of device.  This product would act as a router and wireless hub and can get get projector video feeds from the devices over a network.

Previous Apple projector patents included the following verbiage:

“display 204 may include a movable display or a projecting system for providing a display of content on a surface remote from communications device 200 (e.g., a video projector).”
