MicroVision SHOWWX+ PicoP display engine
by Mark R
I decided to take a break on reporting on gaming gadgets, and focus on some other form of consumer electronics at the E3 gaming Expo. I always like seeing the latest in pico projectors, and I would have to say that the SHOWWX+ laser pico projector is one of the smallest that I have seen.
At a height of .55 inches and width of 2.36 inches, it is able to create an impressive image up to 100 inches in size, with WVGA resolution (848 x 480). According to the manual and what I saw at E3, it should “project on any surface, curved, moving or still, without having to focus or refocus”.
The battery is good for about 2 hours worth of use, and it is great for sharing videos, photos, and presentations in a 16:9 aspect ratio with a brightness of 15 lumens.
The SHOWWX+ is designed to work with all kinds of mobile devices, like the iPhone, iPod, or iPad. A VGA dock is sold separately, which should be good for laptops, netbooks, and the Macbook. It also has a composite adapter for other TV-out devices.
The SHOWWX+ Laser Pico Projector is currently available now, and I checked on Amazon. The current price is $329.00, and you can find out more information at the official site here.
