Northland Capital Markets maintains an Outperform rating and $3.50 price target on Microvision (NASDAQ: MVIS) ahead of potential 2H revenue ramp. Analyst Michael Latimore believes that there is a good opportunity for large retailers to promote pico projectors this holiday season. Success of such products would give more visibility into 2016.
Latimore commented, "Reiterating Outperform rating as we believe MVIS is on track to show a 2H revenue ramp. This material improvement reflects the culmination of years of technology development, a massive effort to get the Sony module launched, elimination of supply constraints, and market receptivity. We estimate 240% growth for this year. We also believe MVIS has established sufficient manufacturing capacity to fulfill strong demand."

We know that the sony engine in celluon product would probably be too large to embed in phone...
We know that they put Intersil in charge of making a smartphone engine...but they stopped making
These types of products a couple of years ago...
So, who is making the smartphone engine in the F500 cellphone?
My gut says with all the IP that microvision has , it has to be STMicro......
I really don't see any other scenarios given Microvisions patent for 2 mirror engines
Which ST Micro is said to have
We should know fairly soon....
Do we still have a relationship with Intersil? If not, STMicro could have replaced them ....Intersil was to make display engine much smaller.....I have heard nothing from them or about them.....maybe STMicro is ours
You mean how he put the lasers out of alignment and said the picture sucked? That type of integrity?
PC mag says we are editors choice
Dumbo ears hasn't figured that out yet
The only time I have seen a similar guy trying to do what he is was when a co-owner of a company was fired for sexual harassment. And. Hounded the company day and night on the internet...in the end he had no effect on the stock. But I can't,say what happened to him legally because of it. It's kind of sad really to look at the guys life or lack thereof
No he doesn't....that would involve dealing with the truth using real facts ,not made up ones like he continuously does...
He has been so marginalized by his boring subjects and his bias. That the best course is to let this jealous fool keep pontificating about nothing.
Unemployment has not been kind to him
I couldn't agree more .this is trust but verify mode...
If they do not follow through with a large product announcement. A company name. And product that investors can connect with the 22 million order. Then the order itself is meaningless...
They need to find a way to get this show on the road...
This is like pulling teeth to get the company to do or say anything to make high growth a reality....
Once at least 1 company announces a high growth product, then we will know that the 22 million is not simply hanging out there swinging in the breeze
I truly hope they have their product roadmap in gear.....but even with the 22 mill announcement detractors of the company can say, " look they have nothing going on". Without a playstation,cellphone,tablet or some other announcement.
This is why we sit at 3$ in price.
Or how about a company called MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ: MVIS), a Nasdaq-listed tech microcap based out of Redmond, Washington — just down the street from Microsoft's corporate headquarters?
It has reinvented the high-definition projector using lasers in place of LEDs to produce a bright, colorful, room-sized picture from a projector small enough to be fitted into future smartphone models.
The company has 66 employees, is valued at more than $150 million as of today's share price, holds more relevant patents in augmented reality, miniaturization, and head-mounted displays than any other company in the U.S. — and it still thinks of itself as a start-up.
Again. 2 words......Editors Choice
That's what PC Mag said
How many people are going to take apart a projector. (And mvis-align the lasers) to end up at an opinion of the product?
The results are in ...we are the best that is out there and many people have been astonished at the quality.....
Get a job, and maybe you can be a player in this industry
The world's leading developer of smartphone-compatible projectors, MicroVision, Inc., is in the process of bringing to market the world's first fully functional smartphone-projector hybrid — complete with the SmartCast system, a new user interface that pushes the boundaries of science fiction-caliber technical elegance.
"Smart cast". Is lenovo
I agree there has been enough time to get our tech in a phone ...if someone else gets "first laser projector in a phone". Then AT should be removed. IMO.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN IRIS LASER AND IRIS DLP?
By using a laser display, Iris is able to display incredibly crisp imagery with zero ambient backlight. This is most noticeable at nighttime, when the laser display will have no ambient glow around the icons. Both versions of Iris are great, but the laser really looks amazing. Its also extremely expensive to purchase in small quantities, so we are only offering a limited number of these for our initial Indiegogo production run.
WHAT’S IRIS’ RESOLUTION?
WHAT APPS WORK WITH IRIS?
Iris currently works with Google Maps, Facebook, Whatsapp, and most native phone notifications as well. Iris has an App that will be available for download giving you the ability to control which notifications are projecting on the Head Up Display The list of features will grow and grow.

Yes. We have successfully installed Iris on a variety of cars and trucks with zero difficulty. Iris mounts securely into the visor body mounting points, and we supply a variation of mounting clips to ensure a secure fit in your vehicle.
WILL THIS PRODUCT MAKE FOR MORE DISTRACTED DRIVERS?
No. Iris keeps the driver informed of changing road conditions, as well school zone notifications, speed alerts, navigation and much more. Iris keeps the drivers eyes focused on the road ahead while still being able to acknowledge incoming communication.
WHAT DOES DD STAND FOR IN DD TECHNOLOGIES?
In mathematical terms, D is written as Δ or delta. Delta is representative of change, D*D is exponential or rapid change. Rather than writing it as D(squared), we used DD. It also happens to be Dallas and Dino's first initial... just sayin.

Iris has components manufactured in Asia and the United States.

The visor of your vehicle must be removed to install Iris. This may sound daunting - but its actually pretty easy. Depending on your vehicle, you may be able to remove the visor yourself, but the easiest thing to do may be to take your car to your dealership and ask them to remove your visor. They will probably give you a funny look but its OK. Once the visor is removed, you will place the included mounting bracket with metal clips in the visor mounting holes. You will want to select the best fit from the included bracket clips. then slide the bracket together so it is nice and snug, and screw the bracket in place. This should feel very secure and not move once completed. Next, plug the OBD connection cable into the Iris front face, making sure to feed the cable OVER the display arm. Next, place the Iris body mounting hole on the mounting bracket bolt, level the iris and screw the round central retaining bolt in place, making sure to adjust the level of the iris. You want it straight! Once this is tight and level, screw the allen screws in the Iris mounting bar and lock the Iris into place. Once this is done, the Iris should not move at all and is now a secure part of your car. Clip the visual beauty covers over the mounting bracket. Next, locate your vehicles OBD port, usually in the driver's footwell, near the door. Plug in the Iris and hide the wire. Iris is now installed and ready to use.
HOW DOES IRIS FUNCTION?
If Iris is used without the app downloaded on your iOS or Android smartphone, it will display information from your car's computer by default such as speed, engine data, fuel consumption and more.
If you have downloaded the app onto your iOS or Android smartphone, you will be able to select what information you want displayed. This includes phone calls, messages, GPS and geolocation information. We will be working on expanding the range of features so your Iris improves with time.
WHAT DISPLAY ENGINES OPTIONS ARE OFFERED IN THE IRIS?
We offer 2 different display engines: a MEMS laser scanning engine and a DLP display engine.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
MEMS laser scanning produces an incredible crisp, vibrant full color image. When viewed at nightime, the difference is apparent when the lack of an ambient backglow makes the laser display really stand out from anything you've ever seen. Laser display engines are also incredibly expensive and for our initial campaign, we are only offering 30 units with the laser display.
DLP display engines provide a bright, crisp full color image. Their performance is excellent and combined with their compact size and availability, they are an excellent choice for use in the Iris.
It's been a very long time that they have been setting them up for high volume
Now we see smartphone product(s). Possible Tv projectors.
Add in tablets.
Won't take much to launch this stock.....
