MicroVision and WOWee ONE to Create Powerful Mobile Theater BundlePocket-size SHOWWX+ laser pico projector and WOWee ONE speaker offer big sound and an even bigger image from small mobile device
REDMOND, Wash. – Nov. 10, 2011 – MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ: MVIS), the leader in innovative ultra-miniature laser display technology, is offering its new mobile theater bundle in partnership with WOWee ONE. The bundle pairs MicroVision’s SHOWWX+™ laser pico projector with the WOWee ONE Classic portable speaker to deliver booming sound and big-screen video up to 100 inches in diagonal image size. Together the two pocket-size devices weigh one pound, making it easy for mobile device users to create an immersive movie theater experience virtually anywhere.
With the mobile theater bundle, smartphone and tablet users can enjoy huge multimedia experiences on the go. Whether users are watching movies in a friend’s backyard, showing off their favorite music video before class or playing highlights from a college football game, the dynamic sound and stunning big-screen image are available in a compact, pocket-size package.
SHOWWX+ is a “Made for iPod, iPhone, and iPad" product that easily connects to a wide variety of consumer electronics to display photos, applications, movies or streaming video on any surface. It is one of the only pico projectors that easily slips into a shirt pocket and offers both big-screen, movie-length viewing experiences and focus-free operation. With a category-leading 5,000:1 native contrast ratio, the SHOWWX+ produces the deepest blacks and most brilliant whites.
WOWee One Classic is compatible with any audio device that offers a headphone jack, and delivers a deeper range of sound than portable speakers costing and weighing three times as much. It melds standard speaker technology for mid-to-high frequencies with a Gel Audio™ driver for low-end bass frequencies that are approximately three octaves below the low end cut-off of speakers of similar size.
“The ability to view, share and play big anywhere just got a whole lot louder,” said Alexander Tokman, president and CEO, MicroVision. “Combining the huge, vibrant, always-in-focus image of SHOWWX+ with the rich and dynamic sound of WOWee offers the ultimate multimedia experience for mobile device users.”
Availability The mobile theater bundle is currently available on the MicroVision online store: SHOWWX+ laser pico projector and WOWee ONE Classic portable speaker.
