Big bang!

Nice article on digital convergence from Business Week.

"...a few breakthroughs are sure to take off, giving birth to new tech champions and changing the way we live and work. Hossein Eslambolchi, president of AT&T Laboratories (NYSE:T - News), thinks the changes ahead will be as significant as the advent of commercial aviation in connecting people and communities. "This is going to be the most disruptive period in the past 50 years," he says.

Driving this long-awaited trend are two powerful factors: the relentless evolution of technology and the tech industry's hunger for growth....

...The industry teems with upstarts, and any one of them is capable of rocking industries with just one new idea. Newcomers have defined each stage of the Information Era. And the age of convergence offers perhaps the richest yet. Why? The networks now taking shape will link together more than 1 billion people, not just with words or voices, but with music, video, games, and commerce. A vast chunk of the world economy is going digital -- and for the next few years it's up for grabs."


It's nice to see some optimistic articles about technology convergence and the emergence of new computing paradigms. It's easy to see Microvision's role in the unfolding digital economy of the next ten years. With the Microvision scanning engine adapted to function in cell phones, digital cameras, in car displays, and 'imagic' consumer digital display eyeglasses, we have the opportunity to position our display as the man/machine interface for digital convergence. Connectivity between people, from the railroad to aviation, to telecommunications and the internet, to ubiquitous mobile phones, is a trend that is only going to accelerate. With the continuing miniaturization and improvements to the Microvision scanning engine, we will be able to provide more pixels-per-penny than any flat panel display. In a world of digital convergence, Microvision's scanning engine's small size, low power consumption, low cost and high resolution and color saturation will enable new industries and redefine digital information delivery.
