Normallegal is absolutely right. If Vuzi ever hopes to compete with the likes of Microsoft and Apple, then they need to get their promotional act together. The Hololens is nowhere near ready for commercial production, yet Microsoft planted the seed in everybody's mind that they have the solution. What has Vuzi done, except prance around obscure trade shows in the shadows and hang awards on their wall. I'm afraid they are losing the public if they don't get their story out to counter Microsoft, Google, et al. Perception is everything.
The Tuesday morning gap was filled yesterday. That may be the only gap that needs filling. My guess is that the big gap in early January never gets filled, and the stock either 1) consolidates sideways for several months with support/resistance around $5.20/$6.60, or 2) it floats upward in a new rising channel.
If Intel really does take control of the branding, that would be a great sign. I can't take it seriously until I see they establish some real attempt at mass-market branding. Enterprise market should be okay; the consumer market is all about branding. They need to get serious about it. Do it right.
All things being equal, would John Q. Public rather buy an Apple smartglass or a Vuzix smartglass? That is the long-term hurdle to climb. Having a sticker that says "Intel Inside" is nice, but it only goes so far. How does VUZI intend to position itself on branding since it intends to compete in the consumer market? Is it too early to think about this? I don't think so. Best to capitalize while you're early and in the lead, because it only gets harder. They need to sign a movie star or sports star to be the promoter for the brand. Get the name out there at least.
Okay, make that two pumpers.

Looks like Vuzix is part of this holographic headset. Vuzix owned the IP.
Guys, forgive me for interrupting your love fest, but I can locate only one pumper who sparked this whole argument. Funny, he started the fire and escaped out the back door.

What if it is Intel/Vuzix IP for the Hololens. The smart glass market is getting pretty intresting!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
It's the same ole story on every Yahoo message board. The pumpers do no favors for the longs - they just create noise and confusion, and in the end, resentment. But I will say these new Microsoft hologram glasses look like more of a threat to Occulus Rift than Vuzix. I can't envision people walking on the street with them unless they're on drugs.
Vo2max, do you see any risk that Vuzix will be relegated to secondary technology and these other Intel investments will be the primary smartglass maker involving Intel?
Betamax vs. VHS. There will be winners and losers in the technology wars. Intel is building a stable of horses, knowing only one will make it to the Derby.
This is evidence that Intel does not see VUZI as the be-all and end-all to the smartglass solution. Intel is hedging their bets. They will utilize the best ideas and scrap the rest. Hopefully, VUZI doesn't end up in the garbage can like GTAT.
Save some cash to buy the gap fill at $5.50 - $5.70 on the 5-day intraday chart.
Betamax was the superior technology, yet VHS was crowned the winner. It is difficult to say at this point which smart glass company will be the leader, even if VUZI waveguide technology is the superior choice.
Cane, people go out of their way to get fitted with contact lenses instead of glasses because they DON'T want to wear glasses for whatever reason. That is my point. The question is can Vuzix and other smart glass brands convert contact lens wearers into full time glass wearers? In other words, can wearing glasses become the norm in society? That is the bigger question, in my mind.
If you currently wear glasses, okay. Do you think the millions of people who wear contact lenses will now wear smart glasses? That is a big leap.
Cane, what more do you need to know? Do you really think the SEC will grant them listing with known errors in their current financial statements? The answer is no. What more do you really need to know regarding this issue?
I agree with vo2nacs. Not to mention that a lot of people won't want to wear glasses on their face for 12 hours a day, every day! The smartphone fits in your pocket and it's with you 24/7.
Bolles, get over yourself. I'm not even asking tough questions. As a shareholder I have right to ask questions and play devil's advocate.
