    Hey MikeDamone61,

    Your $3K price tag comes from what reliable source?

    Or is it just your biased uneducated uninformed opinion?

    How did you get to the $3K price tag?

    They have peddled this idea since 2009.

    The company was called Logic Wireless and the phone was called the Logic Bolt.

    "The phone uses an LCoS (liquid crystal on silicon) projector with an LED backlight from Butterfly Technology, a Chinese company that makes micro-projectors and projector modules. The phone also has a 320x240 touch screen, the ability to read Microsoft Office documents, Bluetooth, GPS and a 3-megapixel camera. The Bolt runs a Java-based OS on its 100 Mhz MTK 6225 main chipset, and is made in China, Saied said. Bizarrely, the phone has a huge 1800 mAh battery but only gets 2-3 hours of talk time, which seems very short for a battery that size. Said said they're working on a 5-hour battery.

    RED FLAG!!! According to Saied, T-Mobile will sell a future version of the Bolt in T-Mobile's stores and "is working on an infrastructure" to support the phone.

    RED FLAG!!! Unfortunately, T-Mobile disagrees. "The comments made by Logic Wireless that T-Mobile is the carrier is inaccurate," the company said through a spokesman.

    The current version of the Bolt is a limited run just to get press and retailers interested in the product, according to Saied. They'll only make a few thousand, he said. The big production run will come with the second version of the phone, which will run Windows Mobile and debut at the CeBIT trade show in Germany a few months from now.

    "The next version is as small as a BlackBerry [Pearl]," Saied told me."

    Of course it was a scam for financing and the phone never saw the light of day.

    The actual phone they claim was theirs was actually the 3M Chinavision MPRO110 that was supposed to ship September 30 2009. Very limited quantity of the 3M phone were ever sold.

    Different companies.

    FCC code 2AFZT belongs to Illuminance (Canton) Co, LTD

    The -L1 is their product code. (PicoBit?)

    The Qualper phone has a FCC id of 2AFZT-Q1 which does not return any hit on the FCC database.
    Probably because it is not meant to be sold in the USA?

    New Prospectus Filing $35m

    Of course it is clear.

    BOTH!

    Growth would require capital expenditures.
    That would still be considered continuing operations.

    What would be bad is all this stock selling supports paying salaries and existing expenses with no new orders.
    Just to survive.

    We need to hear of new orders or see them in the Q report in the form of backlog.

  • If this is sold in one scoop, to a known entity, it would be a fantastic development.

    Sony, Intel, any other highly recognizable name, would make the PPS appreciate.

    This would be a serious public recognition of the technology.

    If it's a bunch of investors, from the latest conferences, than it might just be a need for cash for operations. Then we'll need to see some serious order coming in.

    Stay tuned for the roller coaster ride!

    Intersil / ISL78365 Explained

    Hillerby55 said that Sumitomo corresponded with him and indicated those modules would be available in pre-production starting in March.

    Not sure what volume is available as of today.

    May not be high volume commercial production available yet to the point that they would take open orders and display the module in catalogs.

    This information always reaches us way after the fact.

    Intersil / ISL78365 Explained

    Anything sold by the manufacturer has to be tested.

    There are rules regarding add-ons and stuff you hang to your mirror or stick on the dash, many of those rules by your insurance company.

    Mine would not cover injuries caused by a "flying" phone or laptop if it wasn't secured properly. I found out one of my business acquaintances did not get covered for his laptop hitting the windshield after he hit a post at the gym parking lot. The laptop was on the rear seat and went flying and cracked his windshield. Laptop and windshield needed replacement and the insurance denied any claim for them.

    It's in the fine print none of us ever read.

    AEC-Q100 Grades 0(-40C to +150C On Engine), 1(-40C to +125C Under The Hood) and 2(-40C to +105C ECU Box) are for outside the driver compartment and usually under the hood or inside engine components.

    AEC-Q100 Grade 3(-40C to +85C Driver Interior/Under Dash Board) is required for in dash and inside the "car":.

    The Sumitomo module is designed for the Grade 3 (-40C to +85C) temperature range.

    In their paper, they indicated that their DIP module is appropriate for HUDs (Located In Or Under Dash).

    That is an available component.

    Nothing is obvious and we do not know the details of the Sony agreement. Neither do you. From waht we know, Sony only buys the mirror and the mirror driver software from MVIS.

    Automotive grade components are a different animal that household pico projectors.

    Intersil claims this is the industry only automotive grade driver for MEMS scanned laser HUD.

    Class 3R

    You are mixing two topics that are not related.

    Dr. Buckley described the limitations of MVIS engine in Class 2 taking in account pulsed laser projection technology.

    The safety classification and it's application by various countries in determining the limits of what they allow for consumer class products is not related Dr. Buckley's paper but to IEC methodology and information.

    Stop mixing the topics.

    Class 3R

    pierrev55 pierrev55 Jun 17, 2016 11:42 AM Flag

    Obviously you never read Dr. Buckley's paper.

    He calculated that the maximum brightness, in Class 2, for an MVIS sinusoidal LBS engine, would be around 15 lumen. He never published that 15 lumen was the limit for LBS. MVIS was going to use the new Corning 80 mW SHGL and produce a Class 2 20 lumen engine. That Corning SHGL never saw the light of day.

    When Microvision introduced the Gen2 PicoP, it was at 25 lumen and Class 3R. Used DGLs.

    Class 2 is currently the limit in the EU and some other countries for consumer class products.

    Proximity detection could be used to lower thew brightness to Class 2 when in the 10-40cm range. Dr Buckley produced another paper showing that MVIS LBS engine could double brightness at around 40cm and still be in Class 2 at that distance and be adjusted by decreasing the brightness as you get close to the 10 cm. The point was that proximity detection would work for MVIS LBS engine.

    The technical hurdle for LBS would be how much laser light (mW) the mirror can absorb before showing mechanical artifacts caused by heat. If the mirror is too big then it can't really be small or fast enough.

    Obviously your understanding of sinusoidal LBS technology is very limited.

    Give credit to KG for his technological expertise.

    However his engineer background creates a bias versus any technology that is not perfect.

    The marketing people see an opportunity for such technology because humans are not machines and they like technology that provides them pleasant stimuli regardless of the technology imperfection.

    It's not at 40%.

    It's at 3.4 out of 5.

    You are correct, a lot of the negative 1 start reviews are from non verified purchasers or people who obviously do not even have the projector.

    The latest one where he claims the unit displays an 18" picture at 3 feet and displays an ultra wide image obviously does not have one.

    A lot of those negative reviews are for impossible issues.

    There are many 5 start reviews that seem suspicious too.

    Too many 1 start reviews are stuff like "It's junk" or "does not work". No actual review.
