Hi all,

I’m here in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada where the people are warm and the weather is…not! For the next three days, Microvision will be showcasing some innovative new uses of the PicoP display engine for gaming applications at the Intel® Extreme Masters North American Championships, taking place at the enormous West Edmonton Mall. Intel Extreme Masters is classed as the biggest gaming tournament worldwide, with six events around the globe and a total prize pool of $530,000.  Our press release issued earlier today is HERE.
