I don't get the Spark. I think the Torch will outsell it. Real Use Cases for Serious Endeavors.

Really hot stuff: AR and VR spending to double in 2017...2017, that's this year

You mean, like it's 2018, 2019,2020, 2021...

Righto, not all those other years that preceded 2016, 2015, 2014,2013....

I'm guessing Jacob's "like" means you get the cigar

You cannot go to a Site That features Night Vision and not see a FLIR advert (no idea what a tourist tower is but LEO seems a natural market), goggles start at $2.5k and Up

is there any sense, that OEMs to which eMagin provide displays are not happy with their inexpensive alternative? (He asked rhetorically, since we are all trying to engage the company directly with these Marketing Cri de Coeurs, presumably everyone has a phone and email and know how to use them. Direct address, however, seems to be the order of the day.)

Of Course as Kopin is or will find out the display is half the battle, eMagin has a pretty good head start on optics and prisms

redmercuryvendorKickstarter Backer Duct-tape Prototype tier 1 point  
The OLED microdisplays themselves are nothing really new, OLED microdisplays have been available and used for HMDs for a long time.
The problem with microdispays is that because they are physically small, as you increase field of view, you decrease the exit pupil, to the point where as you try and 'look around' the display your physic pupil exits the area within which the display is in focus. That is the fundamental optics problem that would need to be worked around before microdisplays can be used in high-FoV HMDs. So far, eMagin are the only ones to have demonstrated a prototype that achieve this, using fused-fibre faceplates to change the effective exit surface (to get a 2D curved exit surface from a rigid planer display

PDD "Insight Driven", Designers of Blaze Spark, Seems they Design with Asia in Mind (Ceramic Xi'an Warriors?)

In Asia the medical sector has been especially active for PDD. Kanellopoulos explains how PDD has responded to an increasingly sophisticated market in that area. “Four or five years ago companies from the West might enter immediately by tweaking the design of products or perhaps dropping the price a little,” he says. “Now the overall market picture has changed and become more competitive – as a result of which we are helping many companies that we serve with upstream capabilities of contextual research and understanding the market. China alone has tremendous complexity and variety in the way products are designed and engineered and the  way consumers buy.” The South East Asian market is twice the size of Europe (over 600 million people) and covers a huge variety of religions and cultures. As such, it represents an excellent opportunity for PDD to deploy its human-centred design methodologies to help clients understand the particular needs of consumers, patients, and users amongst all other stakeholders in a product or serviceSuccess at January’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has set the tone for the year ahead. BlazeSpark, a consumer-orientated night vision technology, designed by PDD for its client eMagin (a virtual and augmented reality technology company) was an Honoree in the CES 2017 Innovation Awards digital imaging product category. The product will allow consumers to see clean, high-resolution images in the dark by inserting their Android phone into a case that displays what the near infrared night vision sensor is seeing. “Our strength is in understanding the framing of conception and development,” reflects Kanellopoulos. “Insight and creativity have always been in the PDD DNA and will continue to be so.”

Seeing is believing: Glasses give sight back to the blind

Powerful Prisms (OLED Screens and Powerful Prisms, don't know if they are from eMagin but those shoes sure fit)...These glasses give sight to the legally blind

Inside are two OLED screens and powerful prisms

eSight 3,OLED Screens, no Nausea

How Does eSight Let The Legally Blind See?

eSight houses a high-speed, high-definition camera that captures everything the user is looking at. eSight’s algorithms enhance the video feed and display it on two, OLED screens in front of the user's eyes. Full color video images are clearly seen by the eSight user with unprecedented visual clarity and virtually no lag. With eSight’s patented Bioptic Tilt capability, users can adjust the device to the precise position that, for them, presents the best view of the video while maximizing side peripheral vision. This ensures a user’s balance and prevents nausea – common problems with other immersive technologies 

I don't know Don, appears the same as the old Trademark but like Torch (uses only the RGB Pyramid on the Battery Case) they have the good sense not use the dreaded "e" word to identify the company. Tells me they plan to emboss it somewhere

Mr. Gonsalves made another telling comment about the Cameras from the Big Company (GoPro)

Good Point

found that the recorded images always had"rounded edges", the "Fisheye effect", absent with Blaze.

Ms. Baade's Take on Blaze From GAOS

I had the great experience of being introduced to this technology today. Being in public safety for 23 years, this should be standard in emergency vehicles. I was doubtful that I could use it having a visual deficit, but it took that away and worked perfectly. This product will save lives.

Easiest Place in the World to Find My Car, Nothing But F-150s in the Parking Lot, Not One Was Mine

There might have been 200k people there yesterday.  Just a few bullet points (pun intended, bins of free bullets everywhere)

Apple approval for Spark should be in April
FBI interested, LE agencies in General, Dash Cam sort of the deal, a Police Officer pulling up to the ever dangerous traffic stop, record the stop in low light conditions could see how many people were in the car, how they were acting etc. range with IR Illuminator 300 feet, with the assist of Starlight even further with Battery Life to approx 5 hours
Border Patrol, DNR, Game Wardens, asked about potential Mil Sales, did not want to talk about it as I think other use potential outweighed (part of the Admiral's letter to State, remember?)
Can Ship Overseas
Chinese Prefer These to the Domestically Made Displays
Steve Gonsalves is a swell guy
I thought part of his association with the was to blend Blaze into the shows they are considering as Ghost Hunters finished it's last season on Syfy
3 Offers on the Table, Netflix the one he seemed most excited about
He thought the "Survivor Type" shows would use it and that popular culture, media TV, Social, would drive the change that makes "Blaze" synonymous with Night Vision not "Grab the Night Vision Goggles" but "Grab the Torch"
That said "Myth Busters" is a possibility for a Blaze Episode
The AR function they want to get going is the ability to see the symbology that they look for Ghost stuff, he spouted them off , only remember the Electro Magnetic so and so, anyway will be displayed in the frame, through the Torch's camera along with whatever the Hunters are looking at, neat, like Everysight
Made in China (mystery JV?)
Interesting time talking to the inventor of the microbolometer
They both look great, crisp B&W, resolution outstanding, comfortable, Torch's weight is distributed evenly with the Battery's square housing on the back, like the iHMD,
shatterproof, can take a direct hit of a Paintball, Revision Locust or Housing for the displays, bought a Torch get it March 8

It is estimated that more than a fifth of the world’s population or approximately 1 billion people have no access to electricity, and a billion more have only an unreliable and intermittent supply. Of the people without electricity, 85% live in rural areas or on the fringes of cities. 600 Million Africans still don’t have access to electricity. In many parts of Africa, night-time economic activities are practically nonexistent.
