    If you look at the link below , the photos are from CES 2015 Jan in Las Vegas.

    Notice Sony MPCL1 is in these photos which were shown at CES, and some privately. If you look close at some photos of the back of the MPCL1 from other links you will see Engineer Sample only.

    I'm betting Sony's mobile projector MPCL has now grown up since Vegas 8 months ago. I'm looking for a similar Celluon PicoPro but on steroids :) . Let's wait a see!

    So what does this mean for the mobile device market?

    These video streaming platforms have created a new purpose for smartphones and tablets. Gone are the days when we were confined to sitting in front of a stationary television screen and flipping the channel during commercials. Instead, we have pocket-sized devices on which we can instantly view mobile video without interruption. The one thing we have been giving up when we view our movies and shows on a mobile device is a screen size big enough to sit back and watch the show in comfort, alone or with a group. But like everything else in the technology world, there is a solution at hand that makes larger-viewing experiences achievable.

    Pico projection technology is helping enhance the choice people are already making by offering the option of mobility, without the limitations of a small screen. Customized viewing experiences give the consumer the power to pick the screen size that best suits the moment. Whether you’re on a plane, a passenger in a car, or even camping in a tent, you can project and watch your latest television obsession on a screen bigger than the 5 plus inch screen of a smartphone or tablet, getting as big as one that rivals the largest big screen at home.

    The Binge-Watching Craze: Mobile-Influenced, Pico Projection-Enhanced

    As a growing part of the population is demanding “TV Everywhere,” pico projection can be the key to having content on-the-go and the big screen we are used to at home – the technology answer to having our cake and eating it too. Solutions such as MicroVision’s PicoP® display technology offer a vivid, always-in-focus picture and the ability to generate a screen size of over 100 inches from a device no bigger than a smartphone.

    wearable technology among consumers. Holographic video development is being carried out in MIT's Media Lab.
    •Notable players involved in R&D include Avegant, Google, Kapsys, Displair, etc. Optical technology helps project images and data from computers or video players into the viewer's visual field. For instance, MicroVision's HMDs allow Army tank commanders to view the surrounding area from topside while simultaneously viewing a translucent map that floats a couple of feet away. This industry is characterized by M&A activities and strategic alliances to boost technology development.

    Sony’s Device Segment & Insurance Business Continue to Rise

    MicroVision PicoP technology is a part of Sony's Device Division

    A good sign for Sony, the Devices segment of the company reported a 35.1% increase and in turn brought in ¥237.9bn ($1.92bn) in revenue. For those unfamiliar with Sony’s division breakdown, Devices consists of semiconductors and components. This includes Sony’s camera sensors which can be found in competitor devices from Apple, Samsung, and Motorola. Better yet, Sony doesn’t see this trend slowing down.

    It’s no wonder Sony is investing $4 billion in their image sensor business. Another interesting bit from Sony’s earnings came from their Financial Services segment, which really consists of the company’s insurance business. That division reported ¥46 billion ($370 million) in revenue, up 13.1%.

  • With the annual software developer conference Google I/O approaching next week, many in the wearable industry are wondering what place Glass will have on the agenda, and to what extent Google will continue to promote its augmented reality platform. Glass was not a main focus during the 2014 I/O conference, however, that may change this year as Google Glass officially became integrated as a division within Google this past January.

    Sony topped our list as the largest US patent holder in this space, owning over 600 patents. Close behind is Samsung Electronics, which owns 550 US patents related to AR and HMD technologies. The next largest owners are IBM (476), Microsoft (392), and Google (351).

    What if Sony's engineers decide to add multiple functions to their laser based pico projection devices?

    The technology is also capable of image capture through scanning as well.

    What if Sony were to develop a module that was capable of both image capture and projection for embedded!

  • NCC CERTIFIED BY TAIWAN, POCKET PROJECTORS UPCOMING SONY MP-CL1

    Sony plans to launch a pocket projector, this product has appeared on the Taiwan NCC Certification page.

    For MP-CL1 is not too much information, but can be determined, Sony this pocket projector at CES in early 2015 actually exhibited, but information found on the Internet is really quite rare.

    Already, which means Sony MP-CL1 will soon be launched in the Taiwan market by Taiwanese NCC certification.

    note..Sony Device Division is about to show the world their breakthrough Laser Displays using MicroVision PicoP. Sony IMO , is thinking $billions of dollars from this new technology which they have invested
    extreme cash the last few years. This pico projector which I'm guessing may look different than shown
    will rock. Let's remember, Sony's is coming out with more devices and more technology using MicroVision
    PicoP engines and to think Sony sells 70+% of camera sensors around the globe to major OEMs, you can image where Sony wants this patented laser technology from MicroVision to end up. OEMs around the world can now rely on Sony to produce the best laser based pico projection technology. Their Device divisions also branches out to lamps, walls, tables, medical, etc. We all earlier this year why Sony was projecting $billions more in revenue in the next few years. For me, I see it being done with PicoP.
