    Thanks for the clarification. I seem to recall rumors of a limited release to china or something. But I say full speed ahead with the PS Vita + Gen3 PicoP

    I still don't quite get whether or not there is an MVIS Pico-P inside with this release. I thought the big news event was a few days ago and I didn't see any specific MVIS link at that time. I hope it is, but a BIG SPLASH in the headlines would be the best thing for the MVIS long.

    I agree. And all we need now as the final piece of the puzzle is to address the one last missing equation to the MVIS conundrum... the share price. It must go UP! It must go up, up, up to match the global scale of what this tiny little company will be able to accomplish.

    No doubt Apple would want it to be 3 mm thinner... and maybe Jove Ive would decide he just can't live with the design of the lens shape. Samsung is fine by me. Apple can play catch-up.

    Samsung is my guess.

    The "wow" factor

    I would guess that the Asian markets (including India) might find that a wi-fi Pico-P fills a niche that hasn't been addressed in that part of the world. I'd imagine many chinese homes are too cramped for a large screen HD TV. So this new iteration of a portable projector TV might catch on like wild fire. It's an interesting theory. Americans already have everything, but it would be worth while to find out if there is a market in Asia (especially considering their population is much larger by a factor of 10 than the first world).

    Where was Joe Spazz?

    I'm hoping that Joe's mediterranean cruise is a sign that he's feeling completely invested and happy with the progress of MVIS. Joe's sleuthing has been invaluable over the years, and I trust there will be more to come as the supply chain comes together.

    2014 ASM: Pre-meeting Notes

    Thanks for the inside info. It occurs to me that what these NDA high tech company investors need is to hire some expert poker players from Vegas who are trained at reading the tell. Then just have a face to face with the CEO and grill them on every point blank question that they otherwise will not answer. So they might not say anything with their words, but a practiced poker player could tell from the subtle body language, recoils, smiles and shifting eyes and blinking whether it's yea or nay.

    I seriously think that concept might work, and there's enough money on the table that I'm sure the pros from Vegas would be interested.

    It was awesome

    Question: were there any key words like 'automotive' used repeatedly? That was one of the tell tale giveaways from the ASM I went to.

    I went a couple years back just to see the Gen2 PicoP. I wouldn't expect any headline news, but the one advantage to going is to try to read behind the headlines. Little things like how the PicoP I saw was connected to a Samsung smartphone.

    The year I went they said there would be demos in the press release, but when I got there they said there wouldn't be any. But AT came out to show the Gen2 himself. Maybe this year they'll have a working PicoP in a tablet?

    My conclusion on the Gen2 was - no flicker to speak of. No barreling that was noticeable. Very bright.

    On the down side, I thought it interesting that there wasn't hardly a single blank white surface in the room to actually demo the unit on. So Alex tried it on the ceiling, but the gyro in the unit didn't work very well pointing straight up. No doubt they've fixed that by now. Hopefully they won't need someone to pull out a sheet of white paper to make the screen.

    I don't feel like driving through rush hour traffic this time since I've already seen the Gen2. But I'll look forward to the reports. I'd especially like to hear any inside hints about how things stand with Sony and Pioneer. They did have great coffee and great pastries last time.
