The PEK Rocks

One of the things that I’m most excited about this year is our brand new PicoP Evaluation Kit (PEK). This is a tiny metal box with our PicoP Display Engine (PDE) inside. The PEK accepts power and video signal from a host device or computer and it projects a bright, beautiful image, just like our SHOW WX handheld accessory.

Purchasing a PEK allows customers to evaluate our laser scanning display engine at the highest performance, with the fastest turnaround, and the lowest cost that we’ve ever provided. This streamlined, low barrier to entry process means more customers can engage with us and try our technology than ever before. In this way, customers can use the PEK to experience Microvision technology inside of their own prototype systems and then work with us on an embedded PDE application.

The PEK is already small enough (60 mm x 68 mm x 10 mm, or 0.39” x 2.40” x 2.68”) to be embedded in proof-of-concept/prototype devices, and it can illustrate to customers how it’s possible to elevate the user experience of mobile devices by using PicoP.

Leading companies in computer hardware, mobile devices, microprocessors, software and electronics have already purchased PEKs to experience the power of Microvision’s technology first hand. It’s exciting to know that our world class technology is now in the hands of these world class customers. For more information, and to purchase a PEK, click here.

    Great Ben! Approximately how many PEK’s have we sold would you guess?

    Thanks

    This is some of the best news yet! I think some have over looked just how big the availability of the PEK really is…
    Thanks for the updates!

    Ben,

    Do you ever feel embarrassed when you read back over your blog posts? Or do you actually believe what you write?

  4. Hello Robert:

    You are being mean to “Ben” for no apparent reason when you write your scathing comments to his post.

    I read his post and feel that Ben may be a bit more enthusiastic than his normal self… but not unreasonable considering the huge opportunity the PEK development allows for multiple developer engagement by the hundreds [if not thousands] in such a short time after PEK introduction. Ben has more information that you and I have at this time and he is restricted in what he can say and can’t be blamed for not “blowing the gaff”.
    My take on Ben’s post is as follows and is by no means “blowing smoke up his stack”…

    Statement of facts with a sales pitch! Yes. What Ben is not telling you is the price of PEK in his post.

    That’s a pretty impressive sector list of PEK customers and is stated enthusiastically. And, of course, we have no way of knowing if Ben is “blowing smoke up our stack” or just telling us the truth. Assuming he is telling the truth, and I see no reason why he won’t be, I share his excitement that is finally oozing out from under the “cloak” of secrecy prevalent at Microvision.

    Bravo Ben…for letting the “cat out of the bag”!!!
