A quick word or two with a much more impactful image.
People have asked me to show some sort of visual evidence of what VEE can do for pico projectors. Below are two images I took of pico-projected content, the left one with VEE turned off and the right with VEE turned on.
* Both captured images are from the same camera and a fixed exposure time
* Both captured images are from the same projector with identical lumen output. The only difference is that VEE is enabled or disabled.
This, dear readers, is effective lumens.

Seems like a no brainer. What barriers are you coming up against with OEM to make this a checkbox item?
Pantech phone 5inch- is this the only size phone you will be targeting?
Thanks for the questions Terence…
RE: barriers — the biggest barrier we face right now is mass market adoption of the pico projector technology into smartphones and tablets. It won’t matter how much we can improve the viewability of a projected image if no one sees it…but we are optimistic as to pico projector adoption prospects, especially those that would use VEE.
Re: the second question about size — we are targeting all smartphones, regardless of display size.
You need to correct the statement above the photos: it says that in both photos VEE is turned off…
You are absolutely right…thanks for noticing my error!
are you working with microvision?
Thanks for the question. We actually do not comment on specific engagements with potential customers and/or partners, as generally any engagement (if it exists) would be covered under an NDA. I can say that we know of Microvision’s technology from having seen it before at public demonstrations, and that there is no reason that VEE would not be compatible with it.
