    • Remember My statement...>>>Every rep at Fraunhofer mentioned that the present green lasers available use too much power and are not efficient enough for use in a cell phone projector. Guesses were two to three years away.

      Stu/Sensi's statement...>>>>You are FULL of SHIT. No doubt about it. Over and out.

      IPM's statement...>>>Having just returned from CES and the meeting, I can tell you Hillerby is wrong on both accounts. The specs for size and power were met. Of course Apple does it right, with that R&D they better. What MVIS has done in the last 6 months in nothing short of miraculous. More to come.

      My statement is backed up by comments from MVIS's CEO, Alex Tokman...>>>>Alex: Absolutely Randy. So we've done one of the most difficult parts, we've developed an optimechanical engine with our 2 strategic ODM partners, which is what we demonstrated at CES earlier this year. The focus of this year is to further miniaturize the electronics and also reduce power. And these two prerequisites get inside the handset. we are targeting an engine that will draw 1.5 watts of power, going down to 1 watt. So we feel we're on the threshold of getting inside the cell phone It's pretty much viewing it 10s of minutes vs. viewing it an hour or and hour and a half or more. And the reason we're able to achieve this, is a very simple reason. Everybody else, including DLP, including TI, they drive their light sources, in this case lasers, all the time. We only turn on the lasers when we need them to be turned on. So for example. If you're looking at an image, whereby half of it is covered with green grass. For half of these pixels, our technology will only turn on the green lasers, while keeping the red and blue off. TI has to keep all three lasers turned on constantly despite the fact that they only need green. So what happens then is that the other two that are staying on, the energy gets converted into heat, and therefore very power inefficient.

      and MVIS's Chief Engineer Randy Sprague...and I quote again...>>>The company has signed a deal with an undisclosed electronics manufacturer in Asia, but the exact timeline for the products depend on the needs of partners and the energy efficiency of the lasers, Sprague says. In an embedded system, he explains, laser-energy efficiency could be a concern: it's expected that projectors made using existing technology would tap a battery fairly quickly. A phone in "projector" mode would use about 50 percent more power than a phone in "call" mode, Sprague says. But over time, he adds, "it will improve to the point where I do believe people will be watching full-length movies from their cell phones."

    • Is there an actual photo somewhere of the PicoP projector that was on display at the ASM?

    • The image looks like pure garbage.
