Windows 10 event --- HoloLens -- UPDATING....

There is no certainty that we're in here, but it looks very promising. In any case the inventor is well familiar with PicoP. I'm still working to figure this out.

Patents listed below merely seem to be related, and possibly are we don't KNOW anything yet.

WIBU -- Hands on with Hololens

Interview with Inventor --- Kipman... this is good

Kipman Inventions with PicoP  <--- all mention Microvision's PicoP display. Before you get TOO excited, they also mention other display systems -- as shown just below.

From a patent. I've seen this particular paragraph in several similar patents:

"Microdisplay 120 projects an image through lens 122. There are different image generation technologies that can be used to implement microdisplay 120. For example, microdisplay 120 can be implemented in using a transmissive projection technology where the light source is modulated by optically active material, backlit with white light. These technologies are usually implemented using LCD type displays with powerful backlights and high optical energy densities. Microdisplay 120can also be implemented using a reflective technology for which external light is reflected and modulated by an optically active material. The illumination is forward lit by either a white source or RGB source, depending on the technology. Digital light processing (DLP), liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) and MIRASOL® (a display technology from QUALCOMM, INC.) are all examples of reflective technologies which are efficient as most energy is reflected away from the modulated structure. Additionally, microdisplay 120 can be implemented using an emissive technology where light is generated by the display. For example, a PicoP™-display engine (available from MICROVISION, INC.) emits a laser signal with a micro mirror steering either onto a tiny screen that acts as a transmissive element or beamed directly into the eye (e.g., laser)."

What I would call a strong connection between Microvision and Hololens coming from a LinkedIn Profile: I won't post the person's name, or any more detail than this, but this was from a single profile, and copied consecutive lines...
