As a company who is grounded in research and development as a means to discover exciting, disruptive products, at MicroVision we’re always encouraging others to explore new possibilities and create innovative applications using MicroVision technology. So when Disney Research’s latest projection demonstration surfaced, we wanted to share what they have created mixing their “magic” and our technology.
HideOut is a perfect example of how PicoP® display technology can free your imagination to see outside the box — a prototype system created by Disney Research that uses MicroVision’s patented PicoP display technology in the form of a SHOWWX™ pico projector to enable interactive , augmented reality
applications. The video shows how the handheld device enables users to interact with digital content that seems hidden until the projector brings it out onto everyday objects such as books, walls, game boards, tables, and many others.

This is the latest advance by Disney Research using MicroVision technology. MotionBeam and SideBySide are two other instances where Disney Research demonstrates the type of “beyond projection” applications that can be created using PicoP display technology. The focus-free nature of PicoP display technology is one reason why it is suited to this type of advanced application where other projection technologies are not.
While these projects are only in the research and development phase, we are excited to see PicoP display technology at the heart of solutions that show off some possibilities to change the way we see and interact with information.
