It is not just Google as there are many efforts ongoing....even in addition to Microsoft, Sony and Oculus. As someone (sbacchus??) mentioned here last week, do a Google search on:
"13 ways to digitize your face (that aren't Google Glass)"
This tells of 13 other companies working on the same sorts of things which will make us HIMX longs rich. HIMX may or may not be in all of these............but I bet they are working with many of these and include them when they list "Others" in the plural form.
Yes and is another great reason to be in Himax. They have the patents on their technology so they will come to them. They are waiting on Google:
1.) To copy (Baidu)
2.) To see if glass will fail or takeoff. IMO Samsung will follow. Apple seems to be putting their nose up and may come out the loser. Apple will be sorry some day, again IMO.
Micorsoft will have the gaming market with their own interation of glass as Sony will follow with theirs.
Just need the market to stay steady because that is the thing I fear. Still gun shy from 2000 :)
Good luck all longs.
