Microvision and Motorola have agreed to develop pico-projector display solutions for mobile applications, leveraging Microvision's PicoP ultra-miniature laser-based display. Tiny laser-based projectors are expected to enable a big-screen viewing experience from mobile devices. Using the technology, images displayed on the mobile device’s screen can also be projected onto a wall, object or even a curved surface.
The companies revealed they will work together initially to integrate Microvision's latest PicoP projector inside a functioning mobile device for demonstration purposes. This prototype handset will use Microvision's WVGA (854 x 480 color pixels) wide-angle scanner, first demonstrated in May 2007 at the Society of Information Display annual conference.
