Confirmation of Thesis....

Have some urgent business to take care of before I can compile everything. What I saw confirms my thesis: Summed up best with these older posts.

There's a TON of Value here.

Microvision is involved in the busiest technologies at this year's CES:

Personal assistants -- Self driving cars -- Mobile Phones -- Augmented Reality -- Internet of things. Where those things were at CES, there were lines of people trying to see it.

Fairest of them all.

Bleeding Edge to leading edge.

What is the value of these businesses?

What do you think it's worth (or how much more than it's trading for?)

Of course to find the right company now, you'd look to something that was going to be a key component of an up and coming new technology. 

  • Mobile technology is still in its infancy -- find the next must-have feature, and you're golden. 
  • Personal assistants, like the Amazon Echo or the Google Home are gaining popularity, and will likely become more and more common, and more widely available everywhere -- especially if video features can be conveniently added to them. 
  • The Internet of Things is talked about everywhere, more and more powerful computers are being put in everyday items. If you're old enough to remember the 1990's a powerful personal computer of the 1990's was required to play the game "DOOM" -- but that computing horsepower is now available in a thermostat. [Doom on a Thermostat] The thing about that computing horsepower is that people need a good way to interact with it, that will be a key component.
  • Augmented Reality, the ability to enhance the world you see with computer generated information, is so new most people have seen little of it except perhaps an experience with Pokemon Go. They're getting great results with this technology in industry, greatly increasing productivity -- and it's a wild fantasy of gamers. It will be bigger than Virtual Reality -- it brings people together, or it can. Virtual reality isolates them. 
  • Self Driving Cars and Automation: I know self-driving cars are controversial -- they're not going to happen all at once though. They're going to happen a little at a time. More and more sensors will appear, the ability to automate some functions of the car, and the ability of the car to process the sensors' information and intervene when necessary is going to increase. No one is complaining about cars automatically NOT hitting pedestrians, or parking themselves, or alerting us when there's another car in our blind spot. This happens through primarily sensors that can detect and identify other objects.
