Provision Interactive Joins Forces With University of Tokyo to Add "Touchability" to 3D Video Technology

First "Tactile Touch" Product Provides Extraordinary Enhancement to the User Experience

CHATSWORTH, CA--(Marketwire - September 9, 2009) - Provision Interactive Technologies, Inc. ("Provision"), a subsidiary of Provision Holding, Inc. (OTCBB: PVHO), announced today that a joint venture agreement with the University of Tokyo has resulted in a 3D video display that a user can actually feel.

The product developed jointly by the two organizations is unlike anything on the market today. Those at the August 2009 Siggraph Expo in New Orleans were able to get a sneak peek at the extraordinary "touchable" technology.

"Our joint venture can add an invaluable new twist to our product line," said Provision CEO, Curt Thornton. "We created a product that responds to a user's touch. Our friends at University of Tokyo have added the element that allows the user to feel the interaction. Ultimately, the value of our products lies in the user experience."

The University of Tokyo has been developing the new technology that allows users to physically sense the touch-feeling in the air when they put their fingers on Provision's floating holographic 3D image. The University has named this technology "Touchable Holography."

Tactile sensation requires contact with objects, but including a stimulator in the work space dilutes the appearance of holographic images. The "Airborne Ultrasound Tactile Display" solves this problem by producing tactile sensation on a user's hand without any direct contact and without diluting the quality of Provision's holographic projection.

Additional testing and market research will enable both companies to further enhance the actual tactile impact of the touch.

A video demonstration of this combined technology is available on Provision's You Tube website at
