Microvision Ships SHOW WX PicoP Pico Projector To U.S. Consumers

Just because Microvision's SHOW WX laser pico projector shipped somewhere in the world, it doesn't mean that U.S. consumers have been able to easily find one. Today, the company announced that their flagship product is now available and on sale in America, with a special limited edition bundle heading things up.

Starting now, the Standard Edition SHOW WX and the Limited Edition SHOW WX promo bundle can be ordered in the United States, both of which are "Made for iPod" and able to beam iPod and iPhone content onto whatever wall is readily available. The projectors ship with accessories and can be ordered with an optional VGA dock that allows it to connect with a multitude of other devices. If you opt for the Limited Edition bundle, you'll get those extra right out of the gate.

If you needed a reminder, the SHOW WX projector has an industry-leading 848 x 480 resolution, and it's the world's first PicoP laser projector in a pico form factor. The Limited Bundle can be purchased for $999, while the Regular bundle goes for $549. Both should be in U.S. hands by March 24th.

To celebrate the introduction of the world’s first laser pico projector based on Microvision’s PicoP® technology in the United States, Microvision is offering U.S. customers a one-time opportunity to purchase a special Limited Edition SHOWWX bundle. The Limited Edition SHOWWX bundle is for the technology enthusiast and ultra-mobile media connoisseur. This special bundle comes with a personalized splash screen bearing the name of its owner, SHOWWX with 'Limited Edition' insignia, certificate of authenticity and a SHOWWX VGA dock plus other accessories not included with the Standard Edition. The Microvision web store with details about the Limited Edition SHOWWX bundle will open starting today at 12 noon, EST, www.microvision.com/showwx. The SHOWWX Limited Edition bundle is priced at $999.

The SHOWWX is the world’s first laser-based pico projector that delivers premium image quality generated by Microvision's PicoP® laser projection technology. Features include a native resolution of WVGA (848 X 480), ultra-simple plug-and-play use, fiddle-free infinite focus, very high-contrast ratio, and bright vivid colors generated from ultra-miniature laser light sources. Users simply connect the SHOWWX to any mobile device with TV or VGA out (iPod, laptop, etc.) and project DVD-quality images from a mobile device, up to 200” across, depending on the ambient light.
