Confidence is Key

Confidence in the end is what drives your aggressiveness, your emotion, your spirit, your communication, your everything. If you’re sure it’s right, and you know it’s going to work out right, it’s a lot easier to hit it hard. You know the nail is sitting right there, and you can just lean back and crack it. [Otherwise,] that thing is moving, tilting, jiggling, vibrating, and you just can’t do it as aggressively.

-- Bill Belichick
Great advice from one of the greatest coaches in history. You have to believe in what you're doing. You have to believe it with every fiber of your being. You can't be hemming and hawing and wringing your hands over every decision you make. I believe that my choice to align my future with the future of MVIS will work out. I believe that it's worth it to risk it all in order to take a stab at greatness.

I'm sure it's right, and I know it's going to work out right. I am leaning back and cracking it. Who's with me?

I'm just wondering whether you guys at Microvision have tried playing any games with your own technology?

We have the computing power now for amazing virtual worlds, which wasn't the case when Dactyl Nightmare came out. I think its crazy we don't have the headsets yet. If you want a decent FOV and resolution you still have to pay in the region of $35,000, whereas it should be more like $300.

William Gibson said that "the future is already here. It's just not even distributed."

I think the opposite is the case with VR. The headsets should already be here. Can you think of a good reason why the big companies have never really invested in it?

I heard one argument about safety. i.e. People knocking things over while they are playing. Thing is though, companies sell knives, which are incredibly dangerous, yet you would have a hard time suing them for an injury.

Maybe it was just the clunky technology of the time that put people off. Also the fact that the VR machines were very few and far between and were an underwhelming experience.

I think good VR and augmented reality will take the world by storm. It's one of those things that most people don't see coming, a bit like the internet or the sudden mass-adoption of mobile phones.

YES. That is exactly what it is. Nobody sees it coming. Nobody has a clue that the internet is going to change into a geospatial metadata layer.

Nobody knows, nobody cares. And those who do, are getting beat up pretty good.

Not for long, though.

I'm on board, I've got my personal fortune in mvis shares. There is no other way, this is the only technology to deliver a satisfying viewing experience given the realistic constraints of a mobile device; screen size, resolution, contrast, and power consumtion. THE ONLY SOLUTION.

I watched an hour long spotlight on the Stryker from The Military Channel, and it went into great detail about the onboard electronics and displays used. Nowhere was Nomad seen or mentioned. There was a lot of "prairy doging" by the commander, an activity that MVIS was supposed to eliminate. I don't know what to think. It seems like MVIS flogs a "sure fire world beater" for six months, and the aplication just evaporates. Remember the mechanics Nomad? We were going to be selling thousands of these little puppies by 2005.
Microvision will break your heart if you decide to love this company. Be flinty eyed and scrooge like when investing in this company
