REDMOND, Wash. -- August 15, 2013

MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:MVIS), a leader in innovative ultra-miniature
projection display technology, is pleased to recognize and congratulate
Pioneer Corporation on its introduction of a new CYBER NAVI Car Navigation
System for the Japanese market. The product incorporates MicroVision’s
next-generation HD PicoP^® display technology based on direct green lasers
(PicoP^® Gen2) to offer drivers a new way to experience data on the road.

According to a recent press release issued by Pioneer, its Carrozzeria CYBER
NAVI has always pursued a spirit of innovation and industry leadership to
create new value. The CYBER NAVI, the world’s first head-up display (HUD) to
project augmented reality information in front of the windscreen and the
world’s first onboard HUD to use lasers, now has new “Smart Loop” eye
information sharing service. A recent Engadget review of the product described
the enhancement for drivers as “giving them a crowdsourced glimpse of any
trouble that lies ahead.”

The display engine based on PicoP^® display technology embedded in the CYBER
NAVI HUD delivers bright, clear, full-color images viewable in daylight from a
small form factor with low power requirements. Pioneer’s video demonstrates
how the driver’s augmented reality experience is aided by the brightness of
the projected display achieved with PicoP^® display technology. Watch the
latest Pioneer AR HUD video on You Tube now.

Pioneer was the first customer under MicroVision’s “Image by PicoP^®”
ingredient brand business model, and the CYBER NAVI HUD was the first
commercial product based on MicroVision’s PicoP^® Gen2 display technology when
it debuted in Japan in July, 2012. The product was also one of the first to
use direct commercial green lasers.
