The Movie Theater That Fits in Your Pocket

24 Feb

There is a great highlight in the newest Details magazine (March, the one with The Social Network’s Andrew Garfield on the cover) of the new ShowWX+ projector by Microvision. They say “time will only tell if Microvision’s ShowWX+ is mentioned in the same breath as the camera obscura or IMAX, but for now it’s the palm-size reason to give up your flat-screen.  The size of a cell phone, the projector connects directly to your iPod, iPhone or iPad (or, with an adapter, to a laptop or digital camera). Aim it at a dark wall and view high-resolution photos, TV shows, sales graphs – anything you have stored – at up to 100 inches wide. Just like that, your home video collection is a movable filmfest.”

    How can you justify having John Edwards’ Esquire cover photo on your website’s header?
    The man is human excrement in a suit. Well, in a prison jumpsuit.

      I don’t necessarily disagree…but I just threw some magazine covers up there. I’ll add changing it to my “to-do” list!

        John Edwards is NOT admirable, but I wouldn’t waste time recharging a banner with him featured. Currently he is in the news. Don’t bow to pressure. Work on your next post. I noticed that your critic said nothing of Rihanna half nude on the other magazine cover. Go figure.

    This would be I think is a great idea if the restrictions would be minimal, but for now I think this technology can do better, I think the quality is still not yet at par with what the consumers expect. But the technology is getting there. I for one loves creating effects for films and other movie effects using which has given me great outcomes and wonderful effects that made my clients more than happy. Will surely look out for the future of this product.
