Take the pure natural brightness of our new 15 lumen laser pico projector prototype, add in the high contrast and high color saturation enabled by the PicoP display engine which further increases the perceived brightness, throw in a dash of super cool 720p and VOILÀ…the 720p HD PicoP should enable some stunning laser pico projectors!
But, that not all. Also planned to be on exhibit at the Society for Information Display this week are new PicoP development tools, eyewear and vehicle head-up display demonstrators, an immersive gaming demo and the award winning SHOWWX. It is quite a line-up! Read more from the press release issued today.

Hi all, as promised, please find my presentation at ISMAR above. It was a real thrill to be a part of the show, to meet the people who are implementing cool augmented reality applications today, and to get a sense for the coming groundswell for this technology. As the name suggests, ISMAR is a global event and there were people there from all over the world, representing business, science, academia, venture capital and so on. I got the sense that next year’s ISMAR would be absolutely huge.
It’s clear from the discussions I had with various industry members that a see-through wearable display that meets people’s expectations from both ergonomics and display performance is the big, obvious missing link in the AR solution story. We at Microvision are working hard to fill in this gap and create a technology solution that can allow this new market to take shape.
(On another note, during the dinner period, I brought out the SHOWWX and had a blast playing our standard reel of Britney and Christina videos on the walls, tablecloths and ceilings. There was a patio area, it was dark out, and I ended up projecting a gigantic Britney on the side of the hotel. It was awesome fun as you can imagine.)
Anyway, hope you enjoy the presentation and feel free to hit me up with questions (I’ll do my best to answer them).
