The most impressive improvement is the absolute elimination of speckle. The brightness improvement is good, too, of course. But no speckle whatsoever.
Latest podcast with IRIS HUD
A fan sent this in to us. I believe they mocked up the splash screen. I don't believe the PicoAir has the "Image by PicoP" splash screen. Also, the MicroVision logo is the old one. We will be getting the PicoPro directly from Celluon to review soon, so stay tuned. Should be lots of fun!
I've dug up an amazing treasure trove of IP that LG Electronics has on embedded laser pico projection. I am convinced they are the Fortune Global 500 partner.
We have a podcast lined up with IRIS HUD for February. More details to follow. They are quite interesting, based on our discussions with them to date.
I keep away from this message board, generally speaking. Follow our Facebook page for the most updates. Twitter as well. Looking forward to the upcoming podcasts!
Indeed. We are targeting a podcast with Celluon prior to CES. Details to follow on our Facebook page, etc.
Interesting stuff. Thanks. Looks like DE makes/sells tablets, among other things. Based on what I am reading, it sounds like they may be developing accessories as well as embedded laser pico projectors for their products.
We talked about AirPico during our podcast ;ast night. It is still available if you're interested:
If you go to the Continental webite for HUD, it does show DMD being used with 2016 for series production:
"The AR-HUD moves virtual information directly into the driver’s line of sight. It inserts full-color graphics into the real road view in an approximately 130 cm-wide and over 60 cm-high section of the driver’s field of vision at a distance of 7.5 meters. The basis for this is provided by digital micro-mirror device (DMD) technology, which is also used in digital cinema projectors. Continental will bring this projection technology into series production as early as in 2016. Three possible applications are realized in connection with driver assistance systems in the Continental demo vehicle as an example: The AR-HUD supports the driver if the vehicle is in danger of unintentionally drifting out of a lane. The AR-HUD also supports the use of ACC (adaptive cruise control). When ACC is enabled, a crescent-shaped marking in the AR-HUD highlights the vehicle in front that is detected by the electronics. The AR-HUD also reflects navigation information in the real exterior view. This leads to the driver knowing which turning they have to take, without having to look back and forth between the navigation screen and the real world."
