"The single eyepiece is mounted to ballistic eye protection and driven by a smartphone using an MHL-HDMI adapter. The portability provided by the standard smartphone and accompanying electronics module allow for maximum mobility and flexibility. Additionally, the SA-62/SM has a horizontal eyepiece adjustment to ensure proper prism alignment with the user’s pupil. A large exit pupil provides for a comfortable viewing experience even while on the move."
follow him here at his blog where he uses the Nom De Plume, "Travis Johnson", evoking sort of a Stock Market Gunslinger vibe. He so reminds me of the description of the Floor of the Paris Stock Exchange in Tom Wolfe's The Bonfire Of The Vanities when Sherman looks down and sees "men baying for money." It's a good day if you are not living in his skin. Thoreau too, "Most men lead lives of quiet (or noisy in his case) desperation."

|Long View CR|
The contract doesn't specify the XACT model but if it's the 64 i.e. thermal then it does use an eMagin display. It has to be the XACT 64 that was rolled out last month. Sculley mentioned obliquely at last CC. Exhibited at Eurosatory last month.

Look on the bright side, the Yahoo "conversations" have been cooled off, no more "hot takes" and best of all for you and worst of all non-entities like the Janus of Frankenbissel and Boardwalk97 will have to find other work. Extraneous stuff, off topic will appear, well, extraneous.

@kmanmx mine was based on eMagin OLED microdisplays, theirs use Samsung OLED panels. Hard to get wide FOV with microdisplays.— John Carmack (@ID_AA_Carmack) April 10, 2014
Does Dan Cui's Retweet of John Carmack's contention that eMagin's displays have "no physical limits" have any meaning in your High-Concept Universe?
Could it imply a relationship that has been years in the making? What's changed, Lightfields? TIR Prisms?
Johnnie Tang, Himax Analyst, stated that Himax "should" use LCOS in the next Gen Hololens, "should" as "LCOS would be the best choice", "should" as in "I think they probably will"" or "should" as in to "make my speculation seem somewhat reasonable and informed".
