We live in an always-on world, and thanks to the myriad of MEMS and sensors in a myriad of products today, we are granted unrestricted access to the technologies that amplify and simplify our daily lives. MEMS-mirror based Laser Beam Scanning solutions, such as those enabled by MicroVision’s PicoP® scanning technology, can offer projected display and interactivity capabilities that could turn today’s technologies into tomorrow’s innovations.
Take for instance the smart home assistant – a device that is part of a market expected to reach more than $30 billion and a household penetration rate of over 60% by 2021*. In the future, we could see these hubs responding to more than just our voices, but also our hand gestures.
Here’s a further look into how MEMS-based Laser Beam Scanning solutions can enable some pretty cool products:
Demand for small and low cost 3D depth sensing solutions is growing rapidly, with the global 3D sensor market estimated to grow to $5.46B in 2022 at a CAGR of 26.5%**. Innovation is always on the horizon and we are excited to see how MEMS and sensors will play a role wowing us.
