    Microsoft Patent Application linked on aceofspDOTblogspotDOTcom

    12/25/2014

    US20140375789A1 also 20140375789

    Fig 3 & 4 optics look similar to our WF05

    Also a shout out to OLED :

    In other embodiments, the display subsystem may include an emissive micro-display, such as organic light emitting diode (OLED) array display types, inorganic light emitting diode (iLED) array display types, and/or any other suitable micro-display.

    It uses a different display technique than the usual VR headsets with an array of micro mirrors which reflects movies and games directly onto your retinas. The resolution is 1280x720 per eye with a 45 degree field of view.

  • "There's just one problem: Magic Leap didn't actually create all those awesome UI concepts. It copied them."

    When I was looking over Magic Leap patents It looked to me like they were trying to patent every AR/VR technology available & now this revelation . I don't think they have a single original idea . Google is one of the investors in Magic Leap . These big companies sure can waste a lot of dough .

    Perhaps Google wised up that Magic Leap is going nowhere & got with the Carollo/EMAN plan .

    BTW : KOPN has an ownership stake in VUZI so I guess that makes KOPN & Intel partners . LOLOL

    From KOPN 10Q 3Q 2014 Page 11:

    Fair Value Measurement Sept 27,2014 :

    Vuzix Corporation $1,222,118

    Again LOL

    That's because people are starting to realize HDI is all smoke & mirrors .

    Yeah, they're talking to MST , GOOG, ... so is everybody else in the display space .

    All that defenders of HDI have to offer is speculation . No contracts . No Front-Lit products in use in the market . Sounds more like a prototype than a product to me .

    Talk , talk & more talk .

    Google Glass went on sale to developers Feb 2012- 2 years ago & what does HDI have to show for it ?

    Google had to pull the product for a complete redesign partially because of the performance of the HIMX LCOS display . HIMX then scurries to show a new Front-Lit prototype to try to salvage that mess . Seems like they blew their opportunity & now Jerry Carollo has given eMagin's OLED micro displays a foot in the door since he became Google's Optical Architect . (Yeah, check his Linkedin)

    Meanwhile others in the marketplace produce micro displays that go into real products that people can actually purchase such as Kopin displays in the Vuzix M100 and eMagin displays in the eSight - enabling the blind to see - , the Red Bomb , Tracking Point and many others.

    What evidence do you have that Intel will steer VUZI away from Kopin ?

    Just more baseless speculative talk . It gets rather thick on the HIMX board .

    " even as they have no tier one customers"

    What tier 1 customers is the Front-Lit display in ?

    Please show me the PR with the product name & where I can buy the product .

    "several product engagements"

    In other words a real product that contains a Front-Lit display that is available for purchase does not exist .

    Capital Ventures International filed a 13G on 2/13/2015 for 1,580,813 shares so they might have bought the bulk of the Farhi shares .

    If they , or whoever bought the remaining shares ,are selling into the $2 level , that could be suppressing the PPS. Once they are finished the PPS could rise suddenly .

    v720 vs Rift

    by cane5 Feb 21, 2015 9:02 PM
    frankenberrylives frankenberrylives Feb 22, 2015 1:07 PM Flag

    Cane5 ,

    I found a chart to convert TV viewing size & distance to FOV .

    You can find it by searching on this : tv-screen-size-vs-goggle-field-of-view

    Unfortunately the V720 spec of a 130" screen viewed at 10' falls outside the chart . A 100" tv viewed at 10' would have a FOV of 45.2 degrees .
    I doubt the V720 would even be 80 degrees .

    There is also a formula to calculate FOV : Field of View = 2 * arctan ( (S/2) / D )

    However , I don't know how you get the "arctan" variable .

    Ace has a few posts on his blog aceofspDOTblogspotDOTcom indicating Qualcomm as a suitor for EMAN .

    Seems plausible to me . HIMX got into the display business to expand their offerings to the customers they already serve.

    Qualcomm also sees potential in the wearables market . Currently their Snapdragon 805 Processor is in the ODG R-7 glasses , Their Snapdragon 400 processor is in the ASUS Zenwatch, Samsung Gear S , LG G Watch R , Samsung Gear Live & LG G Watch .

    They also have a AR software platform Vuforia and several billion in cash on their balance sheet .

    Seems a buyout of EMAN would compliment their business nicely.

    A 1 for 1 stock swap would get my vote .
