Unfortunately, this technology is still in its early stages, but we’re finding Alexander Tokman of Microvision’s promises interesting. He’s working on technology that would ideally integrate right into today’s mobile handsets, and allow them to project images (whether video or pictures) onto a nearby wall. The display is called PicoP, and uses commercially available green lasers, in conjunction with developments of an Integrated Photonics Module (IPM) to project WGA or SVGA resolutions, at 20 lumens, on a wall up to half a meter away in a lighted environment. In a dark environment, ever larger images can be achieved.
Tokman says there is strong demand from global OEM’s, especially from the Asian market. There’s a working prototype ready, and he envisions complete integration within two years.
Oh, you wanna see that prototype working? Well, come inside for a video.
