Microvision lands supplier of green lasers for its pico projector

Microvision, a Redmond-based developer of light scanning technologies, moves a step closer to shipping its new pico projector to users with the announcement that it has landed Corning as a supplier of green lasers. For two years, Microvision has been waiting for a company to be able to supply production-level quantities of green lasers. Microvision expects its Show WX pico project to be commercially available mid-2009. The Show WX projector uses lasers, not optical lenses, to project images ranging smaller than 6 inches to larger than 100 inches diagonally from a device the size of a portable music player. A key benefit -- in addition to the small size -- is that focusing is not necessary with laser projection technology.
