It is clear to me that Gangster Frank Seymon, (more with the animal masks) (Ed Note- Ray may have been wearing a kevlar vest)

killed both his business partner Casper and Detective Ray Velcoro, unclear  why he killed Casper (maybe Casper was blackmailing him and the revelation is worse than losing $10 Million) but after working Ray for years he knew he was most likely to follow the twisted, really twisted trail back to Seymon. He could see the entire field.

It's hard for me to imagine eMagin selling displays to Belarusian interests but it that what EAR99 allows then I guess they will. Sculley said "global market for VGA displays used for hunting." OK then. Send em to Belarus.

  • They are also anxious that people will not notice somebody rummaging through their pockets and

    Sculley said "Depending on how fast they (whoever "they" is) wants to turn us on..Why Facebook can't wait any longer for the release of a new virtual reality headset

    Oculus can't wait because they sold the sizzle to their devotees before they had a steak that at least partially lived up to the promises they made .i.e. low cost, widely available at an affordable price, "world changing", blah, blah. So everybody stepped into the Rift and appear to be sated by the new look and design Microsoft controller, a toss in, Half Moon controller, new games etc. They avoided the staid and more serious environs of Display Week and AWE to cater to their base at E3. They have to keep up the momentum as Vive appears to be starting to capture the more serious VR enthusiasts, early adopters. eMagin's iHMD has dropped out of the conversation, for now. But in the back of Team Oculus' mind, however, is the sure knowledge that the iHMD was well received at DW and AWE. Cui statement in the Upload VR Interview should indicate to them that eMagin is a busy bee behind the scenes. Oculus is aware due to eMagin managements public statements on the success they have had demoing the iHMD vs Crescent Bay and Gear VR. Interesting that Oculus latest appears to morphing into something that doesn't look like a Dive Mask, it looks like a placeholder design to me. What's next?

    SKYLENS™ – Packed in a lightweight, easy-to-install device, as intuitive as a pair of sunglasses, SKYLENS is a revolutionary approach for today’s aviators challenges. Operational in all weather conditions, day and night, SKYLENS™ provides head-up information and minimizes dependency on airport instrumentation.SKYLENS™ is part of the Clearvision Enhanced Flight Vision EFVS family, displaying high-resolution information, images and video on a high transparency visor, providing superior see-through transmission.

    We see with the iHMD that the hockey puck on the back of the unit that contains the electronics provides balance and prevents neck strain, same thing here.Elbit Systems outlines Paris Air Show involvement

    the iHMD was developed for pilots so no surprise there. So Elbit is one of the avionic companies that eMagin is working with. There are two others, one is Boeing no doubt, the other must be either Rockwell or Honeywell.

    New Capabilities – DigitalJHMCS is alight weight and comfortable head mounted display (HMD), provided by RCEVS, a joint venture with Rockwell Collins. Offering an improved HMD Center of Gravity (CG) and balance and thus reducing neck strains, DJHMCS isplug and play, with minimal installation requirements and the ability to operate with the aircraft’s current tracker and Electronic Unit.DJHMCS can replace legacy JHMCS equipment with no A/C modifications required, thus reducing life cycle costs. DJHMCS offers advanced video and color capabilities in both day and night missions using a modern, lightweight, well-balanced digital HMD system. The system’s proven symbology, combined with color, creates a superior solution that provides intelligent vision in the cockpit. It provides immediate and accurate recognition of friendly, threat and unknown targets and areas to create a complete view of the air, ground and sea picture.  This is accomplished with sophisticated software that integrates accurate intelligence with images, video and sound. The technological upgrade dramatically reduces the logistic and maintenance requirements.


    The Dark Lord's Vomit Comet Continues to Haunt the VR Landscape..VC Investments Pour Into Virtual Reality Startups, But Payoff Looks Distant

    How long? At least two to three years, said Flinn (and that seems somewhat optimistic). One reason is that the hardware doesn’t have mass appeal yet, not least because some of the most prominent products such as those from Oculus and Magic Leap aren’t even released yet. “The No. 1 thing Oculus doesn’t want to do is ship a headset that makes everyone sick,” Taussig said, referring to the nausea common to the use of at least early VR gear.

    Hey man, you MIGHT be in the Welder's Mask...

    This cloak and dagger stuff Oculus is doing is somewhat intriguing

    leaked photos of an "ancient" Oculus design, so says the Dark Lord.  Big Presser tomorrow, "ancient" pictured oculus is a more stylized dive mask. Now design called ancient. Is this a hint of re-design that represents a departure from that approach? Just saying, eMagin Tech showing up on the Oculus Forum, Zuckerberg playing the "they will look like glasses" card again the other day. This week has been a little weird. If it looks like this, I hope eMagin's cracker jack lawyers are ready for action. In the countdown link the black and white picture seems to show one half of a binocular display. And it is not opaque but not blacked out. The other odd thing was Sculley and Campbell mentioned Oculus by name while discussing problems with the device on the latest Call, Opt related a similar discussion at the Annual Shareholders Meeting.  And Dan Cui dropping the bomb that eMagin is in talks with ALL the major headset companies...STOP IT, JUST STOP IT!

    Brilliant Exposition on the State of eMagin By Mr. and Mrs. Opt (Report from Annual Shareholders Meeting)


    Live at AWE "Augmented World Expo" 2015 - June 9th, 2015

    The Empire Fights Back! (Did not like the Dark Lord Sauron stuff I guess, looks like an 0 that keeled over)

    A List of Major VR Headset Companies

    1. Facebook/Oculus
    2. Microsoft/Hololens
    3. Google/Magic Leap
    4. Valve/Steam



    Hands on with eMagin’s 2K prototype HMD

    All in all, the HMD was solid for exactly what it was intended to be – a tech demo showing off eMagin’s microdisplay technology and how it could work with VR. Cui says that eMagin is “in talks with all the major headset companies” about integration of their display technology. If Cui’s belief that these microdisplays will manage 120Hz in the near future proves true – we could easily see the form factor of HMDs reach closer to Zuckerberg’s vision much sooner than many may have anticipated.
