May as well us an Oculus Rift as an AR device with cameras that pass through reality . You can get a much wider FOV & less expensive . Only thing Hololens has going for it is the built in graphics & processing .
HoloLens’ first version aimed at enterprise, says Microsoft CEO
Doesn't surprise me as the FOV is poor & they don't want a GG like consumer failure .
Figures MSFT is backing down from their hype. The FOV stinks & the obviously don't want a Google Glass type consumer failure .
Also Harris sells to first responders so the market potential is huge .
From the Harris poster with soldier & police wearing tac-eye :
Critical Missions , Critical Communications ...
From battlefield to city streets , trust Harris
I think EMAN will have a competitive advantage with tac-eye over products like GG & ODG for first responders as it has already been battle tested .
Harris Co. bought Exelis a couple years go . Exelis was a ENVG customer of EMAN accounting for about 15% of sales at one point .
Ace has a recent post from Jim Donnelly - CEO of SIX-15 on his blog regarding Harris Co .
JD : Always great to see the Six-15 customers using the tac eye's
Not too long ago Jim Donnelly posted about tac eyes flying out the door .
JD: love seeing hundreds of tac-eyedisplays ship to our customers
Hopefully , this will impact our 2Q .
BTW Chicken Little if the GF purchase of the IBM facility is a risk factor for EMAN it will be mentioned in the next 10Q .
So please find something else to complain about as we move toward earnings .
I think the response to trailertrashsong has been clear . All up votes except for the dowvotes by you & scammy .
Go find another stock to trade chicken little .
Maybe you should start a "help an illegal felon immigrant " fund in your sanctuary city . I'm sure Hillary would be grateful & allow you to work as an unpaid intern in her campaign to continue Obama's work of destroying the Constitution . All this of course after you & your boyfriend get back from your honeymoon & your done suing the baker for not making you a cake with 2 grooms on the top .
Ace has a link - can't post .

Garce , I was trying go back & find the discussion where they talked about not producing the IHMD themselves . I could not find it & maybe It was something I was dreaming .
it is clear they are moving forward with producing the IHMD themselves with or without a partner .
Andrew Sculley 1Q 2015 CC :
"Yes, it would be a wonderful thing to sell our HMDs and it would be a wonderful thing to sell displays based on how good it looks, either one of those -- actually we want both."
from Ace's blog
JD : when will you have some HMD news?
DC: going from this engineering proto to full productization takes time. So most likely no public news before end of year.
DC: However, we will be making newer versions of prototypes & showing before then
Hopefully they are getting the third color added, fixing the plug in & integrating some head tracking .
I thought they weren't going to produce & sell the IHMD themselves but maybe the plan is to proceed until a partnership occurs or sell it themselves if one doesn't materialize .
No other VR products are slated to be released until 1Q 2016 so were not far behind the curve .
