MicroVision SHOWWX+ Laser Micro-Projector Unveiled

Have something on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad that you really want to show off to people? What if you want to project an image onto the back of a seat on an airplane, during a long flight? MicroVision has your back, as the company has just released the MicroVision SHOWWX+ laser micro-projector, and it's fully capable of doing all of those things. But, with a small package, and features to boot, MicroVision is asking a pretty penny for their micro-projector.

The new laser micro-projector is compatible with Apple's iPod Touch, iPad, and iPhone. You just connect the device, and then the projector will shoot out a 16:9 image, which can range in size from 12-inches, all the way up to 100-inches. MicroVision also claims that the new projector is 50% brighter than their previous iteration.

The SHOWWX+ laser micr-projector is about the same size as your standard smartphone, so it should be easy enough to carry around. As far as battery life goes, the company suggests that you should get anywhere between 90 and 120 minutes of usage out of it, depending upon how you use it. As for price, you'll be looking at spending $499, right from MicroVision, to get your hands on this little projector.
