Most investors know of MicroVisions' contributions. Get started on day one with HoloLens 2 and the ultimate mixed reality communication app from Microsoft, available together. (https://www.reddit.com/r/MVIS/comments/9n9iyv/microsoft_foveated_mems_application/) h/t ppr_24_hrs, April 17th, 2017 --MVIS files patent for [reducing exit pupil disparity in HMDs.] April 28th, 2017 -- MSFT files eye-tracking patent (useful for foveated rendering) relying on LBS --patent further describes using the same MEMS scanner that is used for AR/VR image production to do the IR laser-based eye tracking.
I’ve yet to determine but will be watching closely all wk, Either way it’s going up till Thursday, from hype of news, or hype to sell before. See March 28th, 2017 and April 26th, 2018 below. Agreement foresees development of a new generation of MVIS MEMS and ASICs and is expected to complete by late January 2019 ("21 months" from April 20th, 2017). a new generation two-mirror LBS MEMS scanner at 1440p and 120Hz. April 20th, 2017 -- MVIS $24M "Large NRE" agreement signed with "major technology company". For example, MicroVision's MEMS engine can be found inside Microsoft Hololens … April 3rd, 2017 --MSFT files patent on enlarged FOV using LBS MEMS and multiple lasers. See slide 13. . http://phx.corporate-ir.net/External.File?item=UGFyZW50SUQ9NzAxOTIxfENoaWxkSUQ9NDEzNjc0fFR5cGU9MQ==&t=1. H/t ppr_24_hrs, August 15th, 2017 --MSFT files yet a FOURTH patent using LBS to do eye-tracking for HMD. January 2017 - March 5, 2017 --MVIS signed Phase II AR contract for $900K. For example, Microsoft HoloLens 2 uses projectors from Microvision.
Scopri cosa rende HoloLens 2 il dispositivo di realtà mista per eccellenza, con soluzioni che producono un valore istantaneo. Snaps photo from second row of a slide Kipman uses to show an early prototype of HoloLens 2. Then again, the mere existence of a patent is no guarantee of its implementation in any form. Go figure... Sure would help if the officials at Microsoft lifted a finger to help... but they seem to enjoy seeing Microvision collapse into bankruptcy. Also seems to imply 114 degree theoretical FOV (60 degrees * 1.9). A recent product tear-down by YouTube user 's2upid' appears to show MicroVision components used in Microsoft's highly anticipated HoloLens 2, but who is this little known technology company? November 10th, 2016 --MVIS announces strategic partnership with ST Microelectronics (MVIS manufacturing partner for MEMS scanners and ASICs) that as part of its aim is to "develop" new LBS scanning technology for AR/VR. It's finally done.
Design includes MEMS scanner that appears to match descriptions provided by MVIS for their new scanner announced on April 26th, 2018 (see upstream). (i.e.
If you can find out how many Hololens 2's Microsoft shipped in Nov-Dec 2019 ~ you could probably extrapolate some sort of cost/revenue/royalties from Microvision's last earnings report ($5M purchase order for Q4 2019, and $5.5M backlog for Q1 2020?) November 2nd, 2017 --MVIS announces Phase II AR completed in 3Q 2017. Design facilitates polarization and beam-splitting that other MSFT patents on this thread use to double FOV.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vfn_u768UoQ. December 16th, 2016 --MSFT FOV patent filed [referencing MVIS and relying on LBS (Laser Beam Scanning --MVIS 20+ year specialty and IP patent strength) to double FOV.] As a result, the field of view could approach 70 degrees, according to the patent summary. h/t baverch75. Hat-tip to Mike Oxlong for getting us started. February 2017 --Sumit Sharma (former "Head of Operations --Project GLASS" at Google) of MVIS promoted from VP of Operations to VP Product Engineering & Operations. Same-day deployment; Low-cost financing for the device; Enterprise-grade security; No custom development required
