Here is why I bought ---INVN –today-- I think it is in 3D space with no competition one year old IPO not many know about it yet
Sales 169 mill-- income 33 mill – shares outstanding 83 mill and today they just came out with earnings that beat
In a nutshell it provides an electronic response to movement- not many in this space- they are the leader
Nintendo Wii-- they make the electronic response to movement for them
Black and Decker Motion-Activated devices use it
•Smartphones & Tablets - to improve any applications for mobile devices that might use navigation, games, or location-based services. Think about a phone that tracks your current speed or location.
•Gaming - for precise tracking of movement as a replacement to tradition hand-held controllers. Think about the Nintendo Wii Sports games.
•Smart Televisions - to use motion for browsing and selecting content, as a replacement to inconvenient touch pads and keyboards. Think about moving the controller right to Play, or double-left to Rewind.
•Health & Fitness - variety of opportunities in activity monitors, fitness devices, and sports equipment. Think about golf clubs or tennis racquets that can instantly analyze your swing.
•Optical Image Stabilization - to reject the distorted effects of hand jitter in high resolution photography. Think of simple handheld-cameras that can take high-res pictures without the blur.
--3D mice and portable navigation devices
•Industrial - variety of uses, including the B&D drill and larger-scale industrial machinery processes.
that is where it gets interesting that all 3D Systems would use electronic response to movement.
Also Motion Tracking is becoming increasingly important for industrial applications including Antenna Stabilization, Precision Robotics, and Agriculture Machinery.
