Microvision has just announced that they managed to integrate direct green laser samples into pico projector prototypes successfully. Why green lasers? Well, they offer a rather significant advantage where size, power, performance and price is concerned. The current PicoP engine from Microvision uses a frequency-doubled “synthetic” green laser, where these infrared lasers are manipulated to reduce the wavelength, hence resulting in the production of green light. Of course, for the end user, it doesn’t really matter which road the manufacturer takes as long as it is the most efficient and cost friendly one without sacrificing on quality. After all, you don’t really bother to find out how your iPhone 4 gives you such great reception, eh? Surely you know sarcasm when you see it.
