Microvision is a famous company in developing Pico Projector targeted with either as a standalone portable device or being integrated into mobile device such as the Intel has demonstrated a game controller.
--------------- MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:MVIS), the leader in innovative ultra-miniature laser display technology, today announced an agreement with Intel(R) to distribute and resell its SHOWWX(TM) family of laser pico projectors through Intel's U.S. distribution channels. ----

--------Microsoft at CES 2013- One interesting item at CES was Microsoft's IllumiRoom which utilizes a projector to enhance the entertainment experience. One of the key researchers behind IllumiRoom, Hrvoje Benko, collaborated with Chris Harrison in developing the OmniTouch, which utilized a Microvision projector and Microsoft. Kinect. Interesting to see that IllumiRoom also utilizes Microsoft Kinect and a projector. It seems Microsoft Research is busy at work utilizing projectors to enhance the user experience and my best guess is that if they ever do come to market with a product it wont be sold with a clunky projector.

-------------------Intel has demonstrated a game controller. By eliminating the limitations of the small fixed screen, and combining it with a large display and immersive movement that gyroscopes and accelerometers offer in new mobile devices, gamers get a much more exhilarating experience.

Disney and a project called MotionBeam---Disney Research group partnered with students from Carnegie Melon to create MotionBeam, which uses a MicroVision SHOWWX, an iPod touch and microcontroller-sensor unit so users can guide and interact with their characters, similar to MicroVision’s own Sultan’s Rings and Project Tuatara.
According to the MotionBeam site, “Developing new interfaces for handheld projectors opens up a range of possibilities for interactive experiences in both work and play.” We agree, and it is great to see other companies demonstrating future possibilities with MicroVision technology.
APPLE- Even with the immersive movement offered by today’s consoles, gamers are still staring straight ahead at a fixed point,” said Alexander Tokman, president and CEO, MicroVision. “By using lasers to eliminate the fixed screen and combining it with immersive movement, whether through your iPhone or something like our Project Tuatara prototype, gamers get an entirely new and extremely engaging experience.”
