In addition to the Last Gadget Standing and Innovation awards at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last month, SHOWWX took away top honors as a “Best of Show” winner at the Macworld 2010 conference this week at Moscone Center in San Francisco. Estimated attendance is in the 30K+ range by the show organizers. So, while attendance may be down from the high a few years ago, this is still a very active show. The Macworld Best of Show awards, selected by the editors of Macworld, are given to the best products, innovations and upgrades.
Only a few companies — Microvision among them — were chosen to spotlight award-winning products on the Main Stage during “Macworld DEMO: Best of Show.” This was a feature presentation for conference attendees, in front of about 1,000 people on Thursday morning. Myself, Ben Averch and Nick Andron gave the SHOWWX pitch and demo on stage. It was exhilarating to listen to the ‘ooohs’ and ‘ahhhs’ of delight from the audience when we turned the projector on! Here’s just one of the many blogs about the event, entitled: Six Products To Watch From MacWorld.
It’s also been very busy in the Microvision booth during the first day of the exhibitions, and many conference attendees are excited to hear that the product is planned to arrive in the U.S. for distribution in the March time frame.
If you are in the San Francisco area, come visit us at booth #1486.

Hi there. Most of you don’t know me so I’ll introduce myself. My name is Tony Bussert and I’m the Product Support Manager here at Microvision. Mostly I spend my days in the trenches helping customers work through their tough issues. I also get to play with a lot of handheld type gadgets so I’ve got a pretty good feel on what kind of experience I’m looking for in handheld technology. Because of this when Macworld rolled around this year I was asked to participate and help man our booth. We had a great show, but the time I had the most fun was after the show was over.

Following the successful debut of the SHOW WX at Macworld and CES I’ve only continued at the same light speed since returning to the office. I can now finally can catch my breath and answer a couple of the questions from previous comments.
