Microvision - a peak into the future

Earlier today, at the invitation of Ben Averch, I visited Microvision and got a view into their upcoming products/technology based on Integrated Photonics Modules (IPM). Also, met with Alex Tokman (CEO) and Ian Brown (VP, Sales and Marketing).

Essentially, it allows you to project the screen of your device without losing focus or clarity, colors are incredibly sharp irrespective of the size of the projected image (depends on how close the projection surface is). OEMS better line up to integrate in their devices.

If you combine IPM with amBX, you are in the different generation of user experience unlike you have ever experienced anywhere. I will be covering these emerging technologies more in detail in the future. Stay tuned.

That's such a brilliant idea!! Because ipm has infinite focus you could make a standalone ambx device integrating ipm. I could see there being a huge market. Or even having it be embedded like phillips does with some of there tvs, now. This guy is a genius. Great to get the endorsement.

Thanks Brian. We were excited to meet him and to see his response to PicoP and our IPM-based business plan.

Chetan referred to PicoP as having high 'instant gratification' value, which he identified as a critical quality for the introduction of new features into the mobile phone.

I thought that was a great way to put it...!

I don't think there is any doubt about consumers adopting PicoP. The really important thing is when can PicoP be made commercially available. AMD media chips are already in OEM's hands for integration in 2008. PicoP seems to be getting late for 2008 release.

Anon 5:56...what a whiner! The green laser just became available early Jan., MVIS has made great strides in the size of the PicoP to date, and can you tell me of another company further ahead in getting a like projector to market? I think it is you who are late to the table in both intelligence and patience. Ben, I feel for you having to read through some of these lame posts...

Come on! You mean they didn't do anything while waiting for Green laser for 5 years? ASIC could have been done ahead of green laser and everything else. To be a great technology company, you have to execute perfectly, otherwise you will be doing prototyping forever. I am a shareholder, not a basher.

it would be great if you would facilitate a discussion about the printer with Epson:
