Ubiquitous, PicoP Technology Woven Seamlessly into the Fabric of Everyday Life?

2/12/2015 Anant Goel

It seems that there is no shortage of great ideas on what you can do with a PicoP Projector.  And just when we think we’ve heard them all, BLAMMO - out of left field, or sometimes from the right, there comes another innovative use for PicoP projection display technology. The innovative use of PicoP Projector, as depicted here, is sure to un-stick your imagination… and maybe even set it on fire. 

Can you imagine?...

  • Shopping isle infomercial projectors… in every supermarket and shopping mall
  • Infomercial projectors in office building hallways, airports, museums, art galleries, fancy restaurants and other commercial and public places
  • Safety, security and emergency guidelines, instructions and procedures video-on-demand at the industrial, construction and other sites
  • Emergency kits with video-on-demand instructions for life [or a limb] saving procedures
  • Advertising outdoor displays for drive-by passenger cars
  • Video projection for large classrooms, seminars, meetings and conventions
  •  And the list goes on.

Now imagine that MicroVision’s laser based PicoP display engine is the [only] technology that makes all these wonderful [and high margin] applications possible…with no competition in sight! 

Here’s why I said: “PicoP display engine is the [only] technology”…

“To make the above mentioned applications, you must have three differentiating and enabling functionality: 1) always-in-focus, 2) short throw ratio, and 3) low power consumption.”

As of this day, there is no competition from any of the DLP or LCoS based Pico projectors… because they lack always-in-focus, short throw ratio, and low power features. And one more thing, don’t forget high 80,000:1 contrast ratio for superb picture quality.

Only MicroVision’s laser based PicoP display engine technology has all the three enabling functionality… and as such, owns this market for the foreseeable future. Not only that, there is a tremendous ad value for the PicoP brand name in being seen at these high traffic places… day in and day out.

Do I hear “ubiquitous, woven seamlessly into the fabric of everyday life”?

Albert Einstein said, "Imagination…is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world."

Some folks are born with vision and have a higher degree of imagination. Others can learn to be visionary and imaginative. Here’s a demonstration of how some engineer at Intel applied his creative imagination and came up with this gizmo using the PicoP display engine.

However, in order to fully appreciate his creative work, it is important to first understand…

“Imagination is an experimental partition of the mind used to create theories and ideas based on functions. Taking objects from real perceptions, the imagination uses complex IF-functions to create new or revised ideas. This part of the mind is vital to developing better and easier ways to accomplish old and new tasks. These experimented ideas can be safely conducted inside a virtual world and then, if the idea is probable, and the function is true, the idea can be actualized in reality.”

So what is it that allowed this Intel engineer to be visionary or imaginative in creating PicoP display engine based application? 

Here’s your answer…

“It’s the availability of the two enabling [and true] what IF-functions that only PicoP display engine could provide: 1) always-in-focus and 2) the short throw ratio”.

That’s what stoked the imagination.  Now it only stands to reason that as the list of PicoP display engine functions [like user adjustable throw ratio, or brighter HD images] grows, creativity will be stoked again and brand new applications that never existed before will come to the market.   

Billion Dollar Idea with $20 Billion Market Potential by 2020...

Company: MicroVision [Nasdaq: MVIS]

Technology: Laser Beam Scanning [LBS] PicoP Display Engine and IP Portfolio

Market: In addition to PicoP projection and heads-up display (HUD) markets, MicroVision anticipates targeting emerging markets and applications including virtual and augmented reality (VR, AR), 3D sensing and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
