MicroVision Announces Micro-Projector SHOWWX with BlackBerry PlayBook Compatibility


SHOWWX playbook projector

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.

The Astonishing Tribe has been showing off some pretty cool concept apps at Mobile World Congress and one of them is a stereoscopic 3D app. The app shows off a carousel style view of some stereoscopic 3D images and shows how the 1080p high definition display, combined with the HDMI output, a nice flatscreen and some fancy coding, all work smoothly together.

The idea of wearing glasses to view 3D is a little lame, but again, it’s just a concept app. Read more about it from Inside BlackBerry.
