Microvision debuts the commercially available laser pico projector, the SHOWWX.
Microvision’s Made for iPod SHOWWX Laser Pico Projector, powered by the PicoP display engine, delivers a colorful, vivid big screen viewing experience from a device about the size of a mobile phone.

The SHOWWX can also connect to other portable media players, mobile phones and notebooks to spontaneously share movies, photos, presentations and more with their friends, family or business associates.

Utilizing lasers as the light source and a proprietary microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) single scanning mirror within the PicoP display engine, the SHOWWX provides a very different viewing experience from pico projectors that rely upon traditional display technologies. The capabilities of the laser-based PicoP display engine include infinite focus, wide field of view and bright, vivid colors.
As a result, consumers can project a widescreen, WVGA (848 X 480 pixels), DVD-quality image onto virtually any surface. The images projected can range up to 200 inches (5.0 meters) in size depending upon the surrounding ambient light.

Initial shipments to distributors in Asia-Pacific and Europe began in late September 2009.
