    Rumored Sony Z3/tablet? (code name: Pegasus) to be released in September--or by Black Friday? Not sure about Sony's naming convention.

    Same terminology used to describe the successful joint development agreement with Pioneer in December 2010.

    My thought is, "a leading name in consumer electronics" would narrow it down to a select few..

    The announced Amazon device will likely involve a camera-based eye tracking method for creating a semi-3d user experience. MicroVision tech may eventually provide a more accurate way of doing this--but for now, Amazon's product uses cameras, as describe in their patent:

    Amazon patents point to camera-based eye tracking, a conventional touch display, and algorithms to spatially adjust an image according to user movements to create a partial 3-d effect.

    Hi Peter, I was unable to attend the 2014 ASM. As described on this message board, there was said to be a thin 30-35 lumen projector shown, correct?

    How would you describe the latest? Compare image quality of the current display with Gen2 from last year? Relative brightness? An absence of speckle would be notable. Was power consumption and batteries discussed?

    Were you or attendees able to photograph or make videos of the presentation? If so, will you pist to your blog?

    Also curious as to if they demonstrated technical advances such as distortion correction on the fly, etc.. thanks!

    To me this makes sense. Projector and phone stowed together and work together (mobile). Projector and phone separated, work apart (standalone). Best of both worlds.

    Ah, looks like there was a deadline for all companies are required to report this. Apple's just so happens to be newsworthy.

    I am new to this type of reporting. In running a quick search, I find articles (at the top) on Apple's recent disclosures--indicating that Apple is a proponent--and has a program in place:

    "Apple’s Conflict Minerals Program
    The ethical sourcing of minerals is an important part of Apple’s mission to ensure safe and fair working conditions in its supply chain. Apple is determined to use “conflict free” minerals in its products.
    Apple began investigating the uses of tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold in its products in 2009. In 2010, Apple became one of the first companies to begin mapping its supply chain to the smelter or refiner level, in order to identify the smelters and refiners its suppliers use and to understand potential entry points into its supply chain for tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold."

    Recent patent application 20140146292 outlines LG's embodiments for a projected keyboard that uniquely utilizes "leakage light". Figure 1 shows the familiar bi-axial MEMS mirror (in association with one or more embodiments)..

    "A projection display device (100) capable of providing a virtual keyboard function to the user, using a light source of a pico projector, is discussed. According to an embodiment, the projection display device includes a light source unit (110) configured to emit lights; a light combining unit (120) configured to generate a leakage light from the lights emitted by the light source (110) unit and to selectively combine the lights from the light source unit (110); an image projection unit (130) configured to project an image using the combined light from the light combining unit (120); and a virtual input unit (140) configured to project an input unit image (150) using the leakage light from the light combining unit (120)."

    Thanks for the fresh perspectives, dgl. Long envisioned, the cultural and architectural basis for this is well laid out in the book, Digital Ground, by Malcolm Mcullough. booksDOTgoogleDOTcom/books/about/Digital_GroundDOThtml?id=Mw4dQAAACAAJ

    sonys market penetration

    "Admittedly it is an embedded product we are waiting for"

    The case for a secondary screen-less display device.. We may be surprised to find a substantial market for a standalone projector that can also be used in a handheld mode. The user places the projector on a surface (coffee, boardroom, or bedroom table) and controls the content or presentation from a casual distance with their smartphone. Such a standalone device could also be used in a variety of as-yet-to-be-demonstrated handheld ways.

    For example when watching a full-length movie, typical users (IMO) would want to keep their smartphone to themselves--and charged for other uses. That is my preference. I increasingly use my smartphone during the one or two hours it takes to watch a conventional movie at home--while not wanting to interrupt the program. Even having my main device coupled to a controller might seem like an inconvenience. Gamers might like it--but what happens when you get a call?

    Two Devices / One Projection

    Apple's homepage with stills from their TV ad. Obviously the projection is from a different source--but it raises the question.. & which brand is it??

  • green_lanterns_11 green_lanterns_11 May 22, 2014 6:50 PM Flag

    Mainstream media reveals no clues. If it is so, the level of non-disclosure (or unawareness) in advance of such a *new hardware* would hearken back to the the early days of personal computing. We sit back and watch...

  • green_lanterns_11 green_lanterns_11 May 22, 2014 4:22 PM Flag

    A merger in the works? In which case MVIS would no longer be an ingredient brand only business. Meanwhile, I recall AT saying MVIS is not presently working with anyone on glasses.. Last cc, no?
