"Oculus sold out of their initial production in 10 minutes.........but are still taking orders and estimating deliveries in June. I don't know why VUZI is not doing something similar..."
Seriously ? Your comparing a company with a $2B war chest backed by FB with VUZI ?
Virtual Reality (VR) is rapidly evolving as an important new area in personal computing and content creation. The Google VR team is a fast-moving group of designers, engineers, PMs and research scientists, tasked with building the foundations for great VR, developing best-in-class VR apps and prototyping novel, delightful user experiences. The project started as a 20% project with Google Cardboard. It has since evolved into a vibrant team of full-time VR enthusiasts at Google.

Sweet , it's a little too early to tell until the Institutional filings are in for the quarter IMO If it is a new owner (s) & it increases the number of shares held by Tutes then yes that's good . If it is shares being shifted among them it's not really that big a deal .
BTW my guess is that it is an Institution making the purchase . 4.4 m shares would not be that uncommon . If you check out KOPN's last Inst. Holdings they are 61.29 % .
A broker could have been accumulating for a client then doing a bulk share transfer .
The timing is suspect as the 2m share trade would not trigger a 13-D filing . Also they have 45 days after the quarter to file a 13-F .
Then if the same entity accumulated the 2m & 2.4m shares they will have to file a 13-D by Jan 30th . 10 days after they reached the 5% ownership threshold .
I wonder if they will gobble up more shares this coming week at these prices before they are revealed .
When the IHMD came out I thought the white dots around the glasses were sensors but they were not .
However , I think these Lighthouse Sensors may go there in the next version being developed by the unnamed licensee .
Hololens is currently a low volume developer product . It will then move to enterprise . Doubtful it will ever become a consumer product due to limited FOV & high pricing .
Consumers are crying about Oculus at $600 and will not pay more than that for what is primarily gaming device .
And yes I know Hololens is AR & Oculus is VR but the primary consumer application is gaming for both .
This is the tech Magic Leap is reportedly using .
In one aspect, a method for projecting one or more images with a projection device comprising a light-scanning optical fiber is provided. The method includes generating a sequence of light in response to one or more image representations and a scan pattern of the optical fiber, articulating the optical fiber in the scan pattern, and projecting the sequence of light from the articulated optical fiber. The articulated optical fiber is scanned within a within a Q factor of a resonant frequency of the optical fiber.
How come Magic Leap gets all the hype & investment ?
Bill will buy some shares and then cut & run at the first bump in the road like he always does .
Cowards like him have no conviction (balls) .
