As CES continues, we’re getting the opportunity to meet with many great folks and have been excited to see people’s responses to our technology. We’ve heard positive things about the possibilities that lay ahead for mobile display and the future of mobile gaming, and we’re pleased to say that Popular Science has awarded our PicoP Gen 2 laser display engine with the CES Product of the Future award! The award compliments the great article Popular Science posted yesterday, which emphasizes MicroVision’s PicoP Gen 2 laser display engine as an embedded display solution. Here’s a quick highlight from the award:
“If there’s one thing we love at PopSci, it’s a pico projector. And, well, we’ve seen a lot of them over the last three years. But MicroVision’s new PicoP Gen2 is sorta the one we’ve been looking for. Not only is it the first pico to display 720p HD video, it’s also the first one we’ve seen that’s small and efficient enough to be built into more things that just standalone projectors–we’re talking projector phones that aren’t bricks and even portable gaming systems that can be standalone mobile entertainment centers.”
Popular Science isn’t the only one impressed with our technology. Jason Gilbert at The Huffington Post wrote a great article about MicroVision’s PicoP touch interactive display and compared the technology to a scene out of the movie “Minority Report.” The article includes a video of our own Mark Burson playing a helicopter game with our PicoP touch interactive technology, painting a clear picture of what Gilbert means when he says “the technology that could one day allow you to play any video game, anywhere, at any time, on any surface.” You can read the full article and watch the video here.
