"That's why they hired me."

    good value

    i feel at this level the stock is a good value and a reasonable risk.
    I feel most of the bad news is factored into the stock.
    EMAN is not the only OLED company with yield issues
    And I find this management uninspiring, and lacking credibility

"I'm As Mad as Hell at Paul Cronson and I'm Not Going to Take it Anymore!''



This is my first post, but let me assure you I have been following this board for many years. I have been accumulating Eman shares for the last 17 years and am not at all happy with how the company is being managed. I would challenge any of you to find another 27 mil revenue non-profit company with so many employees having salaries over 250K.While they have amazing technology, they have shown no ability to produce at a profit without R&D contracts. I have sent Andrew and Paul emails asking if there is a plan to become profitable and I do not receive responses back. I struggle to believe that as a CEO, you could be a good steward of a company resources when HQ is in Washington, Design is in California and the factory is in New York. Seems like a wasteful way to manage a company that is consistently losing money every quarter. My opinion of the BOD isn't much higher than upper management. They make 80K for a single meeting and several conference calls per year along with the options gravy train. Hard to remember anything significant that they have done in the last several years. I am hoping for change, but am losing confidence. My 60K in shares are voting against every proposal at the ASM. I know I doesn't matter in the big scheme, but I am voting my opinion on how the company is being managed. I am praying for a buyout. Less

Microsoft Build 2015 HoloLens

Dan Cui was in Berlin Yesterday at IDTECHEX 2015, fulfilling a commitment? Someone else was there repping Vuzix, looks like Dan's talk was on the General Smart Glass Market

"Me too!"

"Get me some Wearalitys"

This explains the impact of Defense cuts on eMagin's Revenues...Scaling back of FELIN and FIST (Opt hardest hit)

in their favor, though, is their ability to lighten the load of soldiers in the field, even with the power savings realized by more efficient devices, however, there are still to many batteries used and misused. Pixnet, however, guarantees eMagin stays in the game as DARPA designs past systems which adversaries already are fielding. Necessary for the US Military to continue to "Own the Night."  Making displays for Pixnet is what the ManTech Award is all about.

What It Feels Like to Shoot With the Military’s Experimental Smart Scope...SPI Uses eMagin Displays in Their Thermal Weapons Sights



This Computational Weapon Optic has to be the reason that TrackingPoint has made no inroads with the military apart from a dozen or so PGFs purchased for testing. And I believe this scope similarly is bad news for Kopin's as of yet unreleased PATS System. Attributes of the Scope outlined in SPI link.

 SPI CORP is engineering a computational weapon optic system for the DARPA TransApps CWO Program that will revolutionize modern warfare by providing highly advanced thermal imaging & night vision capabilities as well as maximum situational & orientational awareness for the modern military operator.  The system is slated to be ultra rugged and shock resistant, waterproof and have long range capabilities beyond the current thermal imaging technologies available on the market today.  The program is on track to literally “change the scope of modern warfare” with SPI’s innovative leadership combined with DARPA resources and will undoubtedly pave the way for further enhancements down the line to support our Armed Forces nobly.

Question #9

there was another company that partnered with eMagin in the execution of the Focus Group. Who was it?

The best way to get the Answers to 1) and 2) is to invoke the amazing mystical powers of...

"Waz the All Knowing"

eMagin Investors Predictive Analytics Survey

"Well, How Many?"

eMagin Investor Wunderlic Test Part 1.0

"Am I Half Empty or Half Full?

8 Burning Questions Concerning eMagin's Past, Present and Future (Some Dan Cui Content)

1) date of earnings
2)date of ASM
3) results of focus group(and hopefully a list of attendees) 
4) naming contest for new ihmd
5) rollout of the ihmd
6) why did JC go to Goog
7) why did Dan C. come to Emagin 
8) sales .. like how many units is esight selling ?



1) what's the diff?

2) I predict it will be June 4th 2015 at Broadway and 61st Street, BYO Victuals
3) They told us the result, they liked the wide FOV of the Oculus, did not like screen door effect and weight and size of the device, they did not like the Zeiss Cinemizer, low resolution and narrow FOV, they liked everything about the eMagin iHMD guessing they did not tell the penniless college students the price tag, probably would not like that, the participants in the focus group were area college students with an interest in video games, you will never get "a list of the attendees", employed as "consultants"
4)I would like to know when the "naming contest" is as well
5)me too
6)to be an Optical Architect
7)to do what he did at Vuzix and Myvu, introduce leading edge technology, raise the visibility of the company and use his extensive contacts, sales ability and reputation to engage with potential partners and get them on board
8)probably dozens by now

If you just happen to be in LA Mr. Cui, give em a call

Since there is nothing else to obsess about except the hiring of the new "Face of the Franchise" Disclaimer: Rampant Speculation,( Even the Oracle at Delphi Had to Find a Way to make Chicken Entrails Interesting)

 a couple of allusions in the PR stick with me. The first was pointing out the FOTF's success in raising the Market Visibility of Vuzix. No small task, they are even, if possible, a less sexy Upstate New York story than eMagin's.  So he rode the beginnings of AR mania into a significant investment from a whale. He is obviously a very good salesman. THIS> THIS> THIS is eMagin's biggest need apart from the ongoing manufacturing issues. In fact if Comrade Cui can raise the visibility enough while selling the concept that AMOLED Microdisplays are the future of AR and VR that concern could be made obsolete by an acquisition.  To me in the last CC the Joy Boys were just not that interested in the far future. At the previous CC they joked about setting up multiple manufacturing lines but chortled "it won't be us."
 Why in the PR mention LCD and LCOS as the competition for placement in VR HMDs? I know of no such devices for Virtual Reality anywhere. Kopin rushed out and hired Mr. Iba when they caught wind of what eMagin was up too. They are from outward appearances just beginning the process. So why no mention of Oculus and large display Dive Mask HMDs? That was what the Bellevue College Focus Group was all about wasn't it? Nobody is thinking about Microdisplays at present save a very few. It's just the "Dog that didn't bark in the night" thingy. Maybe they just forgot. Or maybe they know those devices are obsolete as well.

The ACES Compliance Summit: Anti-Corruption | Export Controls | Sanctions

seems a little odd that eMagin's General Counsel is participating in this summit unless the technology is being targeted for acquisition by less than friendly entities. There have been recent cases where individuals obtained thermal devices and attempted to smuggle or smuggled TWS and Digital Night Vision to Russia, Belarus and the M.E. Former Navy SEAL was just arrested in CA for similar. So it's a lively market. A technology in demand.
Everybody remembers MOH Awardee Dakota Meyer's freakout that BAE was transhipping Fused TWS through an Emirate to Pakistan. Never was a report on that after Meyer left the company. That could have been PTSD or the situation was remedied to his satisfaction and he clammed up.
Anyway I was not aware that anyone has of yet replaced Susan Taylor but I guess they have one. A lot of eMagin OEMs going, BAE, Raytheon Exelis, Elbit et al so it is a pervasive problem.

http://variety.com/2015/tv/news/nab-show-opening-keynote-peter-guber-virtual-reality-1201471360/

So Here's an Intelligence Test That Was Administered to the (Ironically Named) Poster Zeroletdown From the Yahoo EMAN Message Board

Keep your own score, Honor System in effect. Good Luck.

1) How many fingers are being held up in the picture below.


2) This 16th President of the United States known as "Honest Abe Lincoln" was Chief Executive during the American Civil War and fought to preserve the Union and Free the Slaves. He was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth and is celebrated on Lincoln's Birthday. What is his name?


3) When somebody says on their Linkedin Profile that they are presently working at two companies i.e Google and eMagin they are probably only working at one. If the position with eMagin requires said employee to "report to the CEO of eMagin" on the work he is doing at Google he probably meant to say "I have nothing to do with eMagin, I do not know why I typed those words, I must have been drunk."

"I sorta look like Roy Orbison, don't I?"


1) False

3) South Dakota

If you got all three questions wrong, freak out, you are Zeroletdown.
If you answered all three correctly you are just fine.

PS: The same poster has for years consistently misidentified devices that utilize eMagin microdisplays. He still, after all this time, does not know the difference between Direct View NVGs and Fused Systems.

AmazingTechProducts.com Interview with Dan Cui, VP of ...

Thursday, April 9, 2015

Purebuds Earphones from Amazing Tech Products Inc on QVC TV

Keith Washo is the Senior Director of Alliances at Vuzix Corporation Replacing Dan Cui Who Has Made His Way to eMagin Corporation.


Mr. Washo is a published Author with a background in Tech Sales not necessarily in Hi-Tech or wearables. So Dan Cui IS in the fold, his breezy approach, contacts, Myvu and Vuzix experience and successful record of building partnerships globally is a perfect fit for eMagin a company that badly needs a "face of the franchise". Up until now if you asked me to describe eMagin Management's personality in one word that word would be "austere." Mr. Cui is most certainly not austere. And his Innovation Inspired Pursuit Sales philosophy should work a hell of a lot lot better than Gary Jones Viral Marketing and whatever the eMagin Sales Team is doing now.  No offense.
Little Vid above of Mr. Washo doing his sales thing. Will we see him on QVC or Shark Tank flogging Ar Glasses?

OK, who's trolling Mr. Cui on Twitter? John Damen, aren't you the guy Red Sox fans said "Looks like Jesus, throws like Mary and betrayed us like Judas?

Vuzix next generation Smart Glass design...Dan is a very good salesman which indicates that at some point eMagin will have something similar to sell

Deep Situational Awareness Thought of the Day

To defeat seeing through dense foliage, Sensor CoI is exploring the use of Laser Illuminated Detection and Ranging, LADAR, technologies. Simply put, LADAR creates 3D-image pictures using laser range-finding sensors, he said. Powerful algorithms are used to merge many images and separate the signal from the noise, with the signal being "focuses of interest" and noise being jungle clutter.
LADAR technology is being married up with OLED, or organic light emitting diode, micro-displays to provide suitable images, he said. OLED screens are small but pack surprisingly sharp imagery on them. They also work at night.
