CES: SHOW WX Laser Projector for iPhone

At times, it felt like little video gnomes had snuck into CES, and stashed tiny iPhone compatible projectors all over the place!

…and most of them sucked — out of focus, colors from hell and the luminance of a black hole. But then I found the Microvision Show WX, and my faith in video gnomes was restored.

The Show WX boasts some decent specs:  WVGA (848×480) resolution, 120 minute battery life, and sharp images from 6 inches (or less) to 16 feet (or more).  And since it’s laser based, there’s no need for a focus knob. It’s always in focus.

The only downer is its lack of an on-board speaker. Instead, the Show WX gives you a stereo jack that can be used with external speakers (or ear buds).

Check out the video to learn more, and see it in action.

Shang-Chi Director Directed From His iPhone

I enjoyed reading this brief ScreenRant story, so I thought I’d share it here. It describes how Destin Daniel Cretton, the director of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, was forced to direct an important scene via his iPhone while in the hospital for the birth of his child! Sadly, it doesn’t divulge the details of that unusual workflow, but it’s an excellent reminder that we’re all toting the world’s most versatile piece of filmmaking gear in our pockets and purses!

  1. $500!? That’s nearly how much my full-size, searing-hot, bulb-probably-close-to-burning-out projector cost me two years ago. I’m looking forward to seeing how this thing looks at larger projection sizes—a complete projection rig that’s battery powered, fits in one hand, and costs less than a thousand bucks (even when buying an iPod Touch just for this purpose) would be incredible.

  2. THIS DEVICE IS PRICELESS WHEN I HAVE TO KEEP MY KIDS QUIET. IT IS THE MISSING LINK TO THIS NEW ERA OF A VIDEO ON DEMAND AND ITS NICE TO SEE THAT QUALITY PRODUCTS STIL EXIST. THANKS TO APPLE AND COMPANYS LIKE MICROVISION.
