These smartglasses don't make you look like a cyborg, while giving you pilot-level stats

The CEO of Everysight, Asaf Ashkenazi said in a company release that this is just the beginning. “Raptor is the first step in our greater plan to create a full line of smartglasses.” Something to look forward to for those who aren’t into biking.

Worth Repeating/ re Elbit Everysight

Scully seems to have given a big hint in that direction.

Scully 3rd Qtr 2015
One of the areas requiring our R&D effort is augmented reality, or AR. Higher brightness is required for some application. And here, the easiest one to understand immediately that we are involved with is the display in an aircraft that – aircraft helmet that reflects off a visor in front of the pilot’s eyes. And again, as you probably remember, this is I have got to see icons on the screen, so I don’t have to take my eyes off the outside world and I have to compete against sunlight. And in night, it has to do full night vision. And this is for both military and commercial aviation. And I will remind you that there is a company, one of the
four top companies working on commercial.
But think for a minute about a consumer application. If that same image can be reflected off a pair of sunglasses, it wouldn’t need to be as bright and you and I could have augmented reality on our glasses, our sunglasses and this is where the 800 nit color OLED architecture could be important for these AR applications and also for applications in the industrial segment like inside a warehouse, etcetera.

I didn't notice that Cui's "Toys in Development" Tweet

carried the #hashtag "augmentedreality" so  I assume an AR Glasses prototype is to be revealed in the indefinite future. Not the recent CC from Hell but the previous contained a nuanced reference to eMagin AR Glasses as a product in waiting.

Who is they?, this part of the discourse somewhat convinces that the identity of the Tier 1 is known as prep is underway to get them in the door. Whoever them is. Fingers crossed, it's not a bill of goods

Now the expansion of capacity I mentioned above will not handle the volumes this year once tell us they will need. But it is a needed step for our current customers and these are both display customers and development customers and it’s also needed for the HMD group. It is a first step in preparation, however for the Tier 1s demand. Improving our current efforts will allow the better design of next generation equipment for implementation with the foundry partner. With this in mind, we are discussing these markets with a number of potential partners. We are also searching for a new VP of manufacturing with a background in scaling up processes similar to our OLED display processes. We have hired a new CFO, Jeff and very happy to have him with us and he comes to us with great manufacturing experience, including scale of efforts. These efforts today are needed for our future success in AR and VR markets. And they are clearly needed for our success today and in the near-term next year.

Otherwise eMagin Flounders

Uerkwitz noted, “EMAN reported 3Q15 earnings with a weak top-line performance as management diverted resources away from production into development contracts. This theme will likely continue as management believes future product revenue opportunities hinge on these contracts. Bottom line: eMagin’s end goal is to land one large customer. In the meantime the company will continue to fine tune and improve its microdisplays and land small scale government contracts. We reiterate our view that significant near- term revenue contribution from consumer AR/VR is unlikely due to design cycle and capacity constraints.”

Kip and Dan Go Way Back

Kip assigned to lead the iHMD Project, Dan presumably heading the "other" HMD project likely to be AR Glasses.
