Microvision invites attendees of CTIA Wireless 2008 (from April 1-3 in Las Vegas.) to test-drive its palm-sized, ultra-thin mobile laser projector prototype, code named SHOW, at Booth 4411.
Based on the company’s PicoP display engine technology, SHOW has already attracted the interest and joint development initiatives of mobile handset device manufactures, carriers and content providers.
We’ve all been there. You’re trying to show people a highly amusing picture or video of a mutual friend and you’ve got everyone crowded round the same tiny screen all trying to see at the same time. Well, this is where SHOW comes in.
Mobile devices that integrate Microvision’s PicoP display engine into their products will be able to project any kind of digital content in a large, full-color, high-resolution format onto any surface.
Aside from it being a function on a handset, we’re sure that someone is going to make a fortune from marketing this as a mobile phone accessory as well.
Alexander Tokman, President and CEO of Microvision seems to be on the same page as us when it comes to needing a larger display on mobile devices.
"No more squinting at images and text on small mobile device screens. Consumers want a great big display that lets them project and share TV, digital photos, movies, and games—as well as browse the web—directly from their cell phones and other mobile devices. We invite CTIA attendees to experience the difference that a pocket-sized projector can make"
If you happen to be in Vegas next week, be sure and pop in to have a look. If not, have a picture of the prototype instead.
