    MVIS doesn't have any A/R, THAT'S the problem.

    Yeah, just imagine, because that is as close as Samsung will be to reality. Samsung has already launched a projector phone based on DLP. It is a failure. It's far brighter than the MVIS solution and far cheaper, yet it fails. Projection will never be 10% penetration type product. Too expensive, too much power, and not bright enough. But most importantly, it is not NEEDED. Unlike your phone's camera, you will not use it everyday. So, for a convenience feature, it will never hit mass adoption. Take special notice that AT refers to.Fortune 500, not Fortune 5. Look to the bottom of the list to find this development effort.

    This announcement has relevance for Sony

    Come on. MVIS is in survival mode. They need PR in order for AT to sell more shares. In fact, I would argue that this announcement signals the exact opposite of what you wrote. Sony has thrown in the towel and AT wants PR before that becomes known. Sony has nothing but an R&D effort that is too costly to produce and sell. If only there were a way to bet online about this kind of thing.

  • that is not committed to doing anything with this technology. This is the Sony PR all over again but without development fees! The fact that AT can not get their "partner" to announce their name speaks volumes. Of course a Moto or Amazon or any number of OEMs would engage in a development exercise but like Sony, that does not mean productization. Keep in mind that this MVIS technology is a $100+ adder to the BOM! What CE device can eat that? None. What CE device can pass that on to a consumer at 4x? None. R&D does not equal product.

    Got to give AT credit, he can pump shamelessly.

    and whose name was on the thing that they showed? MVIS makes (has made for them) an ASIC and a MEMS. Someone, an OEM with a brand name, has to take that base technology and turn it into a PRODUCT that a consumer can use. MVIS can cram a Sony or other prototype engine into a piece of plastic but that does not make a product. There is no Sony PRODUCT available to sample or even view. There are no other OEMs even talking about pico projection. MVIS and more specifically, Alex Tokman, is all hype and no delivery.

    just an added FYI, I was at the ASM last year and AT showed a 30 lumen projector engine, crammed into a tablet, then as well. Showing prototype units means nothing, It's not about Gen2.5 or lumens or any spec at this point. Where are the OEMs? These guys have nothing. It's a shame.

    No. Nothing has ever happened in the course of human history that would be considered stranger than Apple getting involved with MVIS. Apple will never, ever, look to MVIS for anything.
