Smart Glasses Boom Means New Business for Optical Components and Sensor Makers: You Think "Glass Looks Strange When Worn", Really?
This is important because spectacles—smart or not—are articles of clothing and the general consensus is that the current generation of smart glasses—Google Glass in particular—look strange when they are worn. There is therefore a premium on any optical subsystem that can improve the appearance of smart glasses by, for example, pushing some of the electronics to the front or side of the head.

UR researcher Tang on short list of Nobel Prize likely winners: Co-Inventor of OLED, Was Collaborating with eMagin on a DOE Funded OLED Lighting Project
but haven't heard a peep about that lately. He was the Guest Speaker at eMagin's Analyst Day a couple of years ago, wow, that seems like ancient history, charming guy. Good Luck Tang.
Now imagine you put this capability into smart glasses that you would wear. You wouldn’t have to hold your phone up to see what was going on, it would be displayed in front of you. Someone walks up their name and relevance to you appears magically in front of you (which is kind of handy with Facebook friends or if you are like me and can’t remember names to save your life).

Ocean AR: The US Navy Project That’s Testing Google Glass: I wonder who is footing the bill for eMagin to get their Ultra High Brightness Direct Pattern Displays produced in large volumes? Naval Research Lab maybe?
He goes on to explain how his group is just working with the “first iteration” of Glass now, and that he expects Glass — and augmented reality, in general — to change a lot in the next few years.

Oculus Brings the Virtual Closer to Reality: The Cult is finally admitting they have no idea what to do with this thing called "Presence": will they ever admit it can't be done? "No" but why? Because $2 Billion
Atman Binstock, chief architect of Oculus, quite succinctly summed up the biggest challenges facing Oculus and virtual reality in general: “actually delivering compelling experiences and not making people sick.”

On Google glass, the analyst said it looks like Google will be returning. "While there is still no word on timing for commercial release for a new version of Glass, Google has been making significant investments in personnel including Ivy Ross and the partnership with Luxottica. We believe that earlier reports of Google looking at alternative display technologies are accurate, but believe that the company may be returning to the Himax fold."
That Seeking Alpha report was bullshit promulgated no doubt by the Jerk (sure that's not the blogger's mugshot) in the upper right corner of this page, the erstwhile Jared Wilson, who, no doubt is a fake identity to undertake just this kind of mischief on Seeking Alpha.

Larry Page visits Samsung in Spring 2013 ostensibly to see about the possibility of using Samsung OLED Microdiplays in Consumer Google Glass.
Comes away apparently empty handed.
Google buys stake in Himax Display and uses their LCOS displays in Google Glass. Reviews are mixed on quality. Battery life awful, heats up causing shutdown, problems.
Ron Mertens reports Google is going to switch to OLED Displays produced by a small company affiliated with the French Atomic Energy Commission called Microoled. (Red Herring if I ever saw one)
On recent eMagin Conference Call CEO Sculley says that prominent Smart Glass Maker(unnamed but clearly referencing Google) KNOWS that they are looking to switch to OLED displays, and just how would they know that unless Google is one of the 10 companies they have been talking to about displays for Smart Glasses. He adds "They (Google) just have to figure out how to get there." he said.
Report today says "Google likely to stick with Himax as Samsung OLED not Bright enough." This sounds like a throwaway line from Google. Samsung had a prototype XGA out there a few years ago but since then not a peep about them. Why compare current tech with 3 year old displays? Having said that apparently a new Samsung Camera has an OLED XGA Display. Just to add to the plot. That's not to say that Himax LCOS displays aren't brighter than those. But they did not mention eMagin. It's an odd comparison to make.
We have already had rumors of Google switching to OLED Displays twice. And yet we have had not one rumor, nothing, that Google might contemplating a switch to the best performing OLED microdisplays on the market. That my friends is "the dog that didn't bark in the night." My conspiracy theory is that Google is once again making public their interest in OLED displays but "these darn Samsung displays are not bright enough, if we could just find an OLED display that is brighter..." that's how they get there.

Like to hear more about this as the Liteye 750A employs an eMagin Display : Great to see Liteye break into commercial.

They are moving as fast as they can.

I was under the impression this patent had already been granted but today reported as new: Apple Wins a Patent for an Oculus Rift-Like Display System
yeah, looks to me like this was granted in December 2013 but here's patently apple among many others reporting the patent as new, all of them, no doubt, panting for a new HMD to talk about. I am too. Those ARE microdisplays positioned in front of the eyes.
I wonder if they are looking to market their own line of Smart Glasses similar to the Pupil. I'm tempted to say "Speak No Evil, Hear No Evil..." but they look like fine people.

discovered an ancient papyrus from the Early Dynastic Period that seems to show that a Prince of the Court, called Himax, attempted to depose another Prince, Eman, as a rival and competitor for the Pharaonic Crown. Not much is known of Himax except he was power hungry and affected cheaply made bright green tunics which were said to be so bright they glowed. Eventually having lost the power struggle Himax opened a shop in the Bazaar that sold kitsch to unwary tourists. So ended the struggle for the Crown. The definitive account of this fictitious era was penned by Jaret Wilson, Graduate Assistant in Photonics ,University of Dipshits Press.

“As those displays keep getting better, you could see this incorporated into a pair of lightweight sunglasses,” she says. “This does not need to go in a traditional helmet. … We can integrate with any display that is out there.”
