    • The article stated ...>>> "The global pico projector market generated revenues of around $0.49 billion in 2011"

      Where did they get there numbers? Five hundred million dollars worth of PicoProjectors sold? At an average price of $250 that would indicate 2 million units sold. Too high IMHO.

    • What stands out for me is:

      "The global pico projector market generated revenues of around $0.49 billion in 2011,"

      What was Microvision's share of that? $500,000? $1 Million? They are supposed to be the leader but someone sold almost half a billion dollars worth of Pico Projectors last year and Microvision sold less than a half of one percent. Truly a pathetic performance and yet another indicator that Tokman is out of his depth.

        You have to realize (and this SHOULD NOT have to be pointed out to you)...that Microvision [2011-2012] was in transition to pivot towards Gen_2 and awu from old "ShowWx" tech...

        ...that "pivot" won them a contract with one of the biggest name in consumer electronics on the planet...PIONEER!...

        ...PLUS...Pioneer became/is now a "parts" technology partner for PicoHUD and other tech/things PicoP-Gen_2 (a bonus structure).

        If you [and others] dont think this has gained industry points with ALL THINGS and ALL players that want Pico-Projectors in and part of their consumer electronics product line-up, both embedded and SA, you have been disinformed.

      • How long does a paradigm shift take on average?

      What stands out for me, is what is not said by the TI Manager of DLP.
      Not one single reference to eyewear. I wonder why?


      "In a research interview with GBI Research, Mr. Frank Moizio, Manager of DLP Pico Projection, Texas Instruments stated: “On mobile devices such as cameras, cell phones, notebooks, and tablets, there is a desire to have bigger picture experiences for consumer entertainment applications, such as gaming, sharing videos and photos, and even web browsing in the enterprise space for mobile workers looking to easily get their vision across, and also in the education space to foster greater collaboration and content sharing among small work groups.”
