Well,



just back home from our trip to Seattle for the shareholder meeting.



First, a note, MVIS is indeed included in the 2004 Russell 3000 Index.



Some great posts about the meeting on the Yahoo! MVIS message board:

For me, the meeting was pretty momentous -- for a couple of reasons.



One, the products. Putting on a Nomad for the first time was a revelation. There is something hard to describe about the experience of wearing a Nomad. The scanner was so light that it's easy to forget it's being worn. The color of the image is unlike any digital image I've seen -- a pure, deep, ruby red. A sight to behold.



I also got to try a full color prototype Nomad which was hooked up to some 2D battlefield type maps with moving 'friendlies' and 'unfriendlies'. The green was particularly nice on this.



The Micro-HUD is going to be a smash. There was a car seat and windshield set up in the back of the meeting room -- when you're in the driver's seat, you can see a full color image that's projected onto the windshield. Having driven about 15 hours to get up to Bellevue, WA for the meeting, it was easy to imagine how much easier and safer a tool like this would have made our journey -- instead of looking away from the windshield to see the moving map and turn by turn guidance information, it can be projected right where I need to keep my attention. This kind of thing will save lives and has a knockout 'wow factor'. I truly believe the Micro-HUD will be a smash success for the company.



There were other products displayed including the Canon EVF, Flic, Lumera products and a 'tech table' with some light sources and the scanning engines. I didn't get to spend much time looking at these but the Canon EVF was instantly very impressive.



The second reason I was jazzed from this meeting was the Microvision employees themselves. They are all extremely enthusiastic and excited about the products and future potential of the company's technology. They were exceedingly gracious and friendly to me, my wife and son. They are doing everything they need to in order to grow Microvision into a big, successful, powerful company.



It was a long trip to get there, but the satisfaction of trying these products and meeting the people behind them made it all worth it.



Can't wait to see what they'll have to show at next year's meeting...
