MicroVision Announces Micro-Projector SHOWWX with BlackBerry PlayBook Compatibility


MicroVision has recently launched a pretty cool micro-projector that has an HDMI connection, making it compatible with the BlackBerry PlayBook. The device is an ultra-miniature laser display that joins a family of pocket-size laser pico projectors. The device has a quick start feature that offers immediate startup and offers true display mirroring. According to the manufacturers, you can display images at sizes greater than 100 inches in a matter of seconds. Since the SHOWWX uses MicroVision’s in-motion laser display technology, the image doesn’t suffer from deterioration or “color break-up” that often occurs with other projection technologies.

SHOWWX+ HDMI is currently available in North America for pre-order on microvision.com and amazon at an MSRP of $369. A full suite of optional accessories, including spare batteries, extended HDMI cables, VGA docks, car chargers and carrying cases are available on the MicroVision online store and from authorized distributors.
