Featured Speaker:

Steve Willey - President of Consumer Solutions - Microvision, Inc.
“The Freedom of Virtual Displays”

One of the limitations on interactive mobile phone applications is the size of the screen. With Microvision’s virtual display technology, images transmitted across mobile networks can be displayed in space, unlimited by the size of a phone screen. Imagine being able to see a spreadsheet transmitted via phone, or being able to play a video game on your mobile — in the air in front of your eyes. Steve Willey will provide a sneak preview of a new product developed specifically for the Japanese market.

Microvision Inc. is the world leader in the development of high-resolution displays and imaging systems based on the company’s proprietary silicon micro-mirror technology. The company’s technology has applications in a broad range of military, medical, industrial, professional and consumer products.
