Laser Projection Phone & Competition

Just had a nice conversation with Joe, and he said, here, check this out.

The article is like we have seen before, but check out the interesting looking device in the picture. Looks like a dedicated PicoP gaming device.

REVIEW: Today's China smartphone market, market competition is not only a sea of blood, is a winner-take-all market almost, then the smart phone giant Lin Li of the jungle, with its own style of technical school or fever also literary small fresh Have your own living space?

Today's China smart phone market, both a blood sea competition market, but also a winner almost take-all of the market, then the giant in the smart phone jungle, with their own style of technology fever or fresh arts have their own fresh The living space?

June 28, 2017 MWC during the Shanghai exhibition, by the Green Orange mobile phone produced VOGA V laser projection phone officially debut, through the built-in laser projection components, VOGA V can cast more than 100 inches of large screen, mobile phone screen size restrictions to be complete liberation. VOGA V to break the limitations of conventional people and the screen limitations, to give people a new unlimited horizon experience, but also for smart phones opened a new window.

VOGA V laser projection phone with advanced MEMS laser projection technology, the three-color laser beam projected on the interface to form a clear image, and no focus, you can always keep the picture clear, even oblique delivery screen, but also through the smart trapezoidal The calibration is displayed as a standard screen. In addition, thanks to MEMS technology, out of the previous DLP projection phone power consumption is too large embarrassment, equipped with 4000mAh large battery, continuous projection of four hours, enough to watch two large.

VOGA series brand is located in Rijiake Group President and CEO Le Jia Ming said, VOGA V positioning is "light entertainment, light business, light family", the target market, including some white-collar male users in the city, like sports, technology, experience Must pursue. At the same time, for the past desktop projector heat problems, Le Jia Ming said that the laser projection power consumption is lower than the DLP technology, coupled with the VOGA V structural design optimization, as well as the improvement of cooling materials, we can better To control its temperature, and this temperature is the consumer can accept the temperature

In fact, any market, there is always a lot of gaps between the giants, often this is later the growth of subversive fertile soil, when Apple is also through this way to subvert the Nokia. Although the laser projection phone is now avant-garde and niche, but who can guarantee that it does not have a specific fan group? Not long ago, VOGA and the International Champions League contract, full sponsor 2017 International Champions League in China, VOGA V laser projection phone has officially become ICC official only designated mobile phone. See, VOGA survived.

Hololens Restricted FOV & Microsoft Patent

Those who have been following Hololens (still a very small part of the population) have known for a while that they have a very significant usability problem with a narrow field of view. That has been addressed here a number of times. (CES Day 3) When I had the opportunity to test it, the NOMAD from Microvision outclassed everything else in terms of field of view.

The mention in this patent is very interesting, it doesn't necessarily mean any more than they absolutely know Microvision is there.

I was invited to visit Microsoft this week. (Another purpose) but I did ask about Hololens, and looked for it. It's in their visitor center, but kept under glass that was all I could see. 

Microsoft may have solved one of the biggest limitations with its HoloLens headset. Since its first unveiling, the device has suffered from a restricted field of view. A patent filing suggests a feasible way to increase the range has been developed.

From Patent Scope

Below from Description:

[0028] The display engine 204 can include, e.g., an image former 206, a collimating lens 208 and an illuminator 210, but is not limited thereto. The image former 206 can be implemented using a transmissive projection technology where a light source is modulated by an optically active material, and backlit with white light. These technologies are usually implemented using liquid crystal display (LCD) type displays with powerful backlights and high optical energy densities. The illuminator 210 can provide the aforementioned backlighting. The image former 206 can also be implemented using a reflective technology for which external light is reflected and modulated by an optically active material. Digital light processing (DLP), liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) and Mirasol® display technology from Qualcomm, Inc. are all examples of reflective technologies. Alternatively, the image former 206 can be implemented using an emissive technology where light is generated by a display, see for example, a PicoP™ display engine from Microvision, Inc. Another example of emissive display technology is a micro organic light emitting diode (OLED) display. Companies such as eMagin and Microoled provide examples of micro OLED displays. The image former 206, alone or in combination with the illuminator 210, can also be referred to as a micro display. The collimating lens 208 is arranged to receive a diverging display image from the image former 206, to collimate the display image, and to direct the collimated image toward the input-coupler 112 of the waveguide 100. In accordance with an embodiment, an entry pupil associated with the waveguide may be approximately the same size as an exit pupil associated with the image former 206, e.g., 5 mm or less in some embodiments, but is not limited thereto.

Thanks all the people who dig for stuff like this and post it.

Apple Car Spotted in the Wild

There is a lot going on in this space.....

keep watching...

From the Twitter Feed

But perhaps everyone is right. A response to Higgins’ tweet notes LiDAR on the roof is a unique choice. It’s entirely possible Apple has struck agreements to build a self-driving car platform for the roofs of production vehicles. A Toyota Camry without Apple’ self-driving tech would look much like the car you see on the road today; with it, the roof may be a touch higher or bulkier, with tinted glass to allow the LiDAR and cameras to operate without obstruction.
This concept also creates an option for car buyers and more flexibility for auto manufacturers; Apple could hide that inelegant unit under bespoke roof assembles. Mom’s new Subaru would be able to use the same self-driving tech as your fancy new BMW, without much aesthetic sacrifice.
The missing link here is what this will mean for tech pros. We’d like to think Apple is also mindful of its developer base, and has side projects specifically geared toward app creation on this new-look platform. SDKs and APIs for apps used in a vehicle laced with Apple technology would be an entirely new market for developers to tap into (CarPlay apps are basically skinned iOS apps). Existing platforms are clunky and have a high barrier to entry; let’s hope Apple is putting in work on this front, too.

AR Glasses -- 5 years to mainstream

"Mainstream" is a significant term, and I don't think this is the kind of guy who will misuse it. Personal computers were well known for about 15 years before you could call them "MainStream."


AR’s Future is Glasses, Not Phones, Says Niantic CEO

John Hanke expects it will take about five years before the technology is mainstream

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif.—The future platform of augmented reality will be on glasses, not smartphones, says John Hanke, chief executive of Niantic Inc., developer of the hit AR game, Pokémon Go.


I noticed a few people put a bit more emphasis on the timer than is healthy, so let me clarify.

When they shipped samples from engine one late last year it took 78 days for them to announce an order for that engine.

I started the timer when shipping samples from engine #2 was announced.

That's ALL it means.

It's entirely possible that an order of this engine would not be announced, because taking such an order is in the ordinary course of business. (If I were the customer I wouldn't want it to be)

AR/VR Video from Microsoft

Kind of shows where some things are heading. Most of what you're seeing here is VR -- AR, where Microvision will likely live is going to be better.

It's a cool video. half through it now... worth watching to this point.

It strikes me that the characters used in the middle of the film look a lot like the "Mi" characters from Nintendo. (see photo below)

Thanks Walt

And an ad they have about Mixed Reality.... there will be a lot of buzz about this pretty soon. 

From the looks of it, Gamers will go crazy for this -- and they are tech leaders -- early adopters of new technologies.

What the squeeze looks like

A good friend of mine, excellent trader and patent sleuth told me about this company a couple of days ago.

He said this is what MVIS will look like pretty soon... let the shorts pile on, this will be fun. 

Microvision with patents alone is crazily undervalued.

Allview & VogaV

When I first saw the link to this I thought it was another fake. I don't think so now.

It appears to be the first European appearance of the Voga V. Starting in Romania.

The appearance in a country that is a member of the EU is a good thing in a number of ways.

Soon Microvision will be an "overnight success."

The Bug Zapper

The use of TOF infrared laser scanning may make Minnesota a more popular place.

This is fairly old, we haven't seen it yet, but it may be waiting for a more budget conscious and smaller laser scanning component.

Recently there have been a few new use scenarios that seem to break previous molds.... checking them out...

Robo Fop -- Berlin IFA

Virtual assistants are all the rage at this year’s IFA, but RoBoHon, the sharp-dressed bot from Sharp Corporation, gets our vote, and not only because he can detect your face and tell you that he likes you. The 20-centimetre-tall robo-phone hybrid is voice-controlled and can make calls, read messages and emails out loud, auto-type dictated replies, click selfies and group photographs, double as a talking alarm clock, as well as display images, videos and maps onto walls and other surfaces. The robot’s back is a small touchscreen for more complicated functions. While the device has been available in Japan since last year, its latest iteration (with English-language abilities) will make its way to other markets, starting with Europe, from this year.

Sharp, Interesting things going on ( UPDATED )

Thanks to Joe for sending me these links to Sharp....

Sharp = Foxconn.

Beyond image projection there isn't a lot of good use for lasers. (See bottom.) Projection is a biggie.

So, if Sharp is producing a million of these each month -- I'm going to guess that it's mostly for their own purposes. There are other producers of green laser diodes, mostly that will go to projection.

Note to self:
Start digging for someone making glass that reflects specific light wavelengths only, I suspect that after specific reflective surfaces that is the next big step. (If your glass reflected 515nm only, and allowed all other wavelengths to pass through easily, this would be an excellent way to make a hud that could take advantage of an entire windshield without blocking vision from the outside or too many other reflections of what's going on inside the car on to the windshield.

UPDATE:  Knew this had to be out there somewhere.

Sharp & Laser -- clearly using MEMS mirror

Sharp Corporate News
 Sharp will start mass production of two models of green semiconductor laser suitable for display light source from November this year.
 Semiconductor lasers are mounted in various devices such as reading and writing data on optical discs such as Blu-ray and DVD and scanners of barcode readers. Recently, the range of utilization has expanded to the image field such as the light source of the projector.
 This time, our company will be able to offer semiconductor lasers of three primary colors of light (red, green, blue) from the company for the first time in the industry by joining the green laser to the lineup. By responding to the customer 's request by adjusting the optical characteristics such as light intensity and laser light shape and electric characteristics such as current value, we contribute to shortening the development period and reducing the burden of procurement work.
This green laser achieves a wavelength of 515 nm and an optical output of 30 mW.  We have two kinds of metal packages with a standard type diameter of 5.6 mm and a compact diameter of 3.8 mm. We will respond to customers' diverse needs as compact projectors, market-expanding small projectors, head up display (HUD) * 2 , head mount display (HMD) * 3,etc.
 In addition, this product will be exhibited at the international exhibition "OptOpto 2017" of optical technology to be held at Makuhari Messe (Mihama Ward, Chiba Prefecture) from Wednesday, October 4th to Friday the 6th.

Purposes for Green lasers (source for below)


Green lasers can be used for a variety of roles. They can be used as pointing devices. The ability to form a continuous line in the dark is an added advantage; this has lead to its usage as rescue lights as it can be seen from miles away. It as been used for laser light shows. It is also used for sky gazing as a person can pinpoint a star by using the green laser. It can also be as laser pointers for guns, rifles. In the movie Alien vs. Predator it was used as a pointing device on some G36k carbines.


The green laser has many advantages. It is fifty times brighter than a red laser because of which it can be seen from miles away, this helps in being rescued if a person is lost. It can also be used in high-tech weapons for aiming purposes. Because of its high range, Green laser pointers can be equipped in different kinds of weapons. High and low temperatures do not affect the performance of Green laser pointers so in case a person is lost in a desert, he can still use Green laser pointers to call for help, in other case, even if a person is lost some where in mountains all covered with ice, he can still use it.

A LOT of this kind of thing has to be happening before Augmented Reality really takes hold, so I'm glad to see that things are really moving along.

"Normal Course of Business"

At the stockholder this year there was clear excitement about engine 2. (PicoP with interactive time of flight feature.)

The samples of this engine were shipped on August 9 Last time samples of a new engine were shipped it took 78 days for the announcement of an order -- but they won't be required by SEC regulations to announce an order (and may be forbidden from announcing it by their customer.) Such an order would be "in the normal course of business," and exempt from a special announcement.

The distributor announcement was excellent.

From the outside we don't know the details of what's happening...

STM, Microvsion

This is from STM's technology tour. Note the highlighting of MicroVision's tech, and the importance of the relationship, and the description of the other engine (which looks a lot like a certain other company's offering.)

There will be competition out there, but it's going to be a gigantic market. Apple is doing relatively well with their 10% of a market.

Augmented Reality Apps included in newest Apple Upgrade

This is only included to show what's coming with Augmented Reality --- the way to view this content with GLASSES --- is going to be a place where MicroVision shines -- no matter who makes the computing hardware.

Inman -- source

“By blending digital objects and information with the environment around you, ARKit takes apps beyond the screen, freeing them to interact with the real world in entirely new ways,” Apple says on its website.

Augmented Reality "Walk the Property Lines" #WalkTheLines from Homesnap on Vimeo.

Magicplan, which allows users to create floor plans while walking and automatically computes the required amount of materials for DIY projects, such as paint or flooring, based on the plan dimensions

Why AR will take off before VR

Virtual reality is probably years away from becoming mainstream, according to Leo Pareja, CEO of real estate big data company Remine. Pareja spoke on a panel called “Connecting Immersive Technology With MLS Data” at the Council of Multiple Listing Services (CMLS) conference Friday.

“VR is way in the distance and probably never mainstream, but AR, absolutely. It’ll start in our phones and then go to wearables,” Pareja said.

Fellow panelist Andrew Flachner, founder and CEO of RealScout, agreed. “Now everyone has an AR device in their pocket with Apple’s announcement.”

But he cautioned that the artificial intelligence and machine learning that underlie some of the newest technologies are very far from being able to understand our world the way humans do.

Currently, tech is available that takes a photo from the MLS and is able to identify definitively that it’s a photo of a kitchen, Flachner said. But we’re a long way from technology that is able to understand that a particular home is perfect for a particular buyer the way a real-live agent can.

Netflix for Theaters

So, a way to get people into theaters has been giving the industry fits. (They still get paid, and they're upset about it.)

I suspect it will be an even bigger problem for them when the theater fits in your pocket. 

I'll stick my neck out a little here, and say these companies are going to be good shorts: Publicly traded Theater Companies.

Blast from the past, India and their shortage of movie screens. (8 screens per million people -- and they love their movies.)

MoviePass -- Watch any movie in any Theater, any day.


In just three weeks, membership spiked to more than 400,000, Lowe told The Post in a recent interview. “I thought it would have taken us more than six to eight months to get as many subscribers as we did in the first two days,” Lowe said.

The New York company tripled its payroll to keep up with demand and has fast-tracked plans for an updated app. One is now due in early 2018 — around the time it plans to launch an IPO.

Under its business model, MoviePass pays theaters the full price of a ticket every time a subscriber sees a movie — so there is no immediate downside for chains like AMC Entertainment, Regal Entertainment or Cinemark.

But the price cut announcement had hardly hit people’s inboxes when pundits and industry insiders were measuring Lowe for a straitjacket.

The price cut, they argue, is doomed for failure, predicting that it will never hold and the company will soon be hemorrhaging cash.

The Forgotten Screen (no really)

From the smart phone available, after several generations of change, almost all of the mobile phone parts have been a depth of "change", envelope, material, processor, pixels, memory and so on. The screen problem, it seems that mobile phone manufacturers deliberately missed.
To "big screen mobile phone", can only be regarded as "full screen" transition products. The size of the phone is too large, not only inconvenient to carry, and the appearance is very rigid. And "full screen" will not have such a problem, to meet the premise of the portable, "full screen" mobile phone with the largest "screen rate" to the user the best visual experience. Throughout the mobile phone market, not only the iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S8 eye-catching, there is a dark orange VOGA is also a dark horse in the mobile phone market cut a striking figure, occupy a place.


 It is understood that the orange VOGA V has a variety of suitable scenarios, including family scenes, outdoor scenes, entertainment scenes and office scenes. For consumers, the more diversified application of the scene so that the green VOGA V more attractive, unlimited infinite connection, sharing will also be unlimited delivery.

From the era of a comprehensive screen, green orange VOGA V with technology to change the "view" sector, a mobile phone is also a portable private theater. The next decade of the science and technology sector, "unbounded full screen", let us look forward to!

There is a timer here for expected news. It will stay running... but we got news with 35 
days remaining

It started counting at 78 days, for expected news after shipment of the sample units of engine #2.

Yesterday we got news that we're connected with the #1 global semiconductor distributor. Which is great news, and will help MicroVision immensely.

I'd stop the clock, but this isn't the news that the timer is set for. It's set for an announcement of the first order for Engine #2 -- which is still expected sometime before the timer runs out.

It's appropriate to notice, that since creating tiny projector engines and sending them to customers is in the "ordinary course of business." The order may be sent and filled, without an announcement at all. If I were producing the product that includes it, I'd like to keep it quiet right up until the announcement.
