Infinite focus, as impossible and unbelievable as the concept may seem, has yet to lose its novelty with me.
Let me rewind: a few days ago, I was working with a colleague using the Pico Projector for some impromptu photographs. After we finished taking pictures, I was playing around with the projector (it seriously never gets old) and I projected the splash screen on the ceiling (on A/C ventilation pipes, etc). Infinite focus is amazing. It really is.
Here are some pics I took with my iPhone (click to enlarge): (more…)

My associate, Russell Hannigan (Director of Product Management for Consumer Projection Displays), and myself have been in Orlando this week at Insight Media’s Projection Summit. And, Ben Averch (Marketing Manager) has just flown in to participate on a panel discussion on the emerging opportunities in 3D. This is not a large event, only about 150 attendees, but extremely focused on the developments in the projection display area. For those attending they are getting a very up-close look at the emerging Pico Projector category. In addition to Microvision’s SHOWWX, also exhibiting in the pico projector category are BTendo, 3M, Micron (DisplayTech Engine) , LG Electronics (DLP pico engine), and Spyro Optics: Jabil (DLP engine). While our ‘engine’ technologies have fundamentally different approaches to projecting an image, it is very positive to see all these players in one place. The market is real and growing! And, being able to participate in the side by side comparisons does not get any more real than this. Speaking of ‘real’, check out the recent posting by PocketNow.
One of their bloggers, Daniel Webster, visited our offices last week and captured this demo of SHOWWX. Nothing fancy in the production, but this will give you a good idea of SHOWWX if you have never seen it in person.
Everybody have a good day. I have to head back to the Projection Summit event. Talk to you later. Matt

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.
