Kindle Fire will display Amazon instant video i.e. movies, TV shows, documentaries etc. Amazon just might bite on the PicoP hook? They need / want to be innovative. But the text reading thing would be a negative. Even if it could project text in a readable fashon, how many people would really want/need to project text. Movies on the other hand . . . .
(Category: Where are all the customers? for $2,000 Alex) If there was a huge a market for picoP. What is: Whatever happened to all the cell phone OEM customers and the mobile device OEM customers and the other green laser makers and HUD and wearable displays?
LOL it's de ja vu allover again. 9 years ago, we were all speculating if it was Motorola, Nokia, Samsung - whoever was going to sign the big deal. And wouldn't you just know it? Nothing happened. Little did we now at the time, that the critical component (namely green lasers) were MIA. It was essentially vaporware. Now, here comes someone else making baseless speculative comments regarding prospective OEM customers. Has the issue of battery endurance been resolved with respect to PicoP embedded cell phones? Do consumers really want embedded projectors in their mobile devices? My guess is that the battery endurance issue has not been resolved. I also believe that there is fear among OEM's that embedded projection in cell phones will create a new driver distraction/safety problem and seen as a toy, as much as a valid consumer appliance. Perhaps PicoP is the answer to a question hat no one is asking?
Actually, my Dad bought is first cell phone in 1984, and I got my first one in 1988. Motorola and Nokia were selling them as fast as they could make them -- by the millions. Everyone a know has a cell phone. No one I know has or wants a small pico projector. And if they did want one, they could easily buy one on Amazon right? I firmly that we (including myself) over-estimated the potential demand for small projectors as a consumer product. We may see this change with the current development of wearable displays however. Wearable displays may well be the game changer we've been waiting for.
Now you're just being stupid. Pico projectors have been around for several years now. If there was a pent-up demand for them, or any major demand for them, it would be obvious. There is no pent-up or obvious major demand for them. No media coverage. You are trying to convince yourself that something is true because you desire it to be true. Good luck with that concept. It's been tried before.
Clearly, some of you MVIS investors are not business people. If there was an obvious demand for these projectors, they would be flying off the shelves and creating a media buzz. As it is, they are essentially invisible to the consumer market in general. To equate pico projectors with the demand for cell phones before 1995, or any year, is utterly ridiculous. That's apples and oranges. Everyone has a cellphone, and or smartphone they're still selling extremely well. Everyone who owns a smartphone can connect with a stand alone pico projector. Apparently, only a very small percentage of smartphone owners choose to purchase a small, stand alone, self powered mobile projector. It will remain a very specialized product serving a niche market.
When will you people realize that these stand alone pico projectors are not in great demand? MVIS will NEVER excel on the basis of the sales of pico projectors. If they were in huge demand, it would be obvious by now. It's merely a niche market. Nothing more. Please get real!
As I posted 6 months ago, it's a niche product -- like so many other SONY products that have come and gone over the years. We're still at $1.76 six months later.
The worst part about the RS, was when AT said that the RS would be implemented as "a last resort". And 24 hours later, without further warning, they initiated the 11/1 RS. OMG! How did we get from a clam and collected advisory from AT that it would only be 'a last resort' to the next day, the RS kicked-in. To me, that was blatant deception. They clearly wanted to avoid a huge sell-off before they did the RS, so they made it sound like the RS was merely an option - as a last resort. When in fact, the decision had already been made and the machinery was set for RS.
Wow! I can't wait for the next reverse split. What a wonderfully outstandingly wonderful stock to own! We ought to fly now eh? What with all the OEM's lined-up to embed PicoP in their mobile devices? Just a matter of time right!
Ha! Back to where we started er, I mean re-started from. Wow! What a great investment this dog turned out to be. Like others, I have no choice than to hold and hope for a miracle.
It would have happened by now. No HUD, no automotive instrumentation projection, no cell phones or tablets or anything else with embedded PicoP - except a rather obscure stand alone pico projector -- which hasn't really come up on anyone's radar -- except here. No main stream media buzz, no projected signage et al. Yeah, I can't wait to get my little robo-doggie with a projector that I can carry around town like some sort of freaking idiot. I had high hopes for Microvision, but this dog is going no where - fast. And it's a crying shame.
