Marketing and production ramps cost money. I would guess that some smart people knew this was coming and that is one of the reasons why there's such a large short position. Why pay $7 or$8 when you can push this thing down below$6?

Hi OX: I expect the offerings to keep happening on any stock price staying power move. It been a regular money raising pattern. Dilution the price for the company proving it can compete with the biggies. Intel didn't sell any stock this round to lower it's stake. This if it truly wants out all together. I listened to the CC. The advertising won't be continuing, but the company did want to show their wears. As I've mentioned before this stock is a poster child ad PRO & CON- Long & Short on twitter. Blackberry? IMO this is what they have had to resort to because the biggies won't partner. IMO Blade 3000 is still a top notch development project that IMO could attract a top tier partner.

IMO you can't rule out a stock or cash deal. A few future hypothetical problem solved and a new platform for Blackberry to build on?

1. A way for INTEL to exit quietly (liquidity in BB stock or cash if a hypothetical cash deal.)
2. Cash to develop Blade 3000.
3. Enterprise Mobile Security: Mobile Device Tracking & Security Software -- Good Technology (BlackBerry)
4. A way for Vuzix shareholders/Board members to benefit by way of BB stock participation if a hypothetical stock deal.
5. Paul Travers can concentrate on Operations/marketing & R&D instead of future funding.

It supports all major operating systems and provides the granular control, visibility and flexibility that IT needs to secure all endpoints.

"As more and more devices and connection points emerge, IT departments are tasked with not only ensuring data and information are secure, but also providing a unified workspace for employees," said Mark Wilson, SVP and Chief Evangelist, BlackBerry. "We're excited to partner with Vuzix to provide an innovative solution that will improve productivity and most importantly help keep people and information safe."

BlackBerry makes its first wearable play with AR smartglasses
BB is teaming up with AR powerhouse Vuzix



Thursday
August 10, 2017
By Hugh Langley
@hughlangley


As we await AR to hit the big time, it's finding its feet nicely in enterprise. Vuzix is one of the biggest names in this space right now, and it's just found an ally... in BlackBerry.

The once-heavyweight of the smartphone world is in a new era where it's licensing its software rather than developing in-house, and smartglasses are next on the agenda.

Vuzix, which has a lot of pedigree in the smart glasses space will be providing the hardware - the Vuzix M300 - while BlackBerry will be providing its UEM software to keep all the data secure.

Read next: The future of AR is...

Unless you're in an industry where you might be donning one of these bad boys, this probably won't matter to you. But it's interesting to see BlackBerry finally edging into the wearable space.

Back in 2014 CEO John Chen said that the company was interested in the category, something he reiterated earlier this year. Despite long rumors of a BlackBerry smartwatch (which seems incredibly unlikely given the new shape of the company), this is the wearable play it's made beyond sticking BBM on Android Wear.

There may be more to come, but as BlackBerry's strategy has shifted, it's likely we'll see this play out through licenses rather than BB building its own hardware. Don't call it a comeback, but it's probably a smarter direction for it to be making right now.

Interesting development at Intel, but IMO no means a game changer for Vuzix.


Intel Corporation Kills Microsoft Corporation HoloLens Chip That doesn't mean Intel is out of future HoloLens devices, though.

Technology website AnandTech spotted that Intel ( NASDAQ:INTC) issued a product-change notification on Aug. 7, announcing that the Atom x5-Z8100P system-on-a-chip (SoC) used in Microsoft's ( NASDAQ:MSFT) HoloLens has been discontinued.

According to Intel's announcement, the company will stop taking orders for the chip on Sept. 30, and the last ship date for the chips will be a month later, on Oct. 30.

The project is expected to span 4 to 5 years and is targeted towards 175,000 American veterans and wounded warriors with low vision and blindness. All 42 Wounded Warrior Battalions and 40 Army Medical Centers will begin introducing Cyber Eyez on the Vuzix M300 to American veterans and their families as well offering assessment, training and technical support services.

Cyber Eyez leverages advanced AI engines to enable users with low vision and blindness to be more independent in a sighted world. Users can experience their world and get things done efficiently and independently. By using a high definition camera and an optical character recognition engine, Cyber Eyez provides highly accurate text recognition and provides the ability for virtually any text or signage read to the end-user in real time with no internet connection while still maintaining privacy. Cyber Eyez on the Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses enables many American veterans with low vision and blindness to magnify anything in their environment up to 15 times, read any text in over 100 languages, identify over 16 billion objects, recognize over a thousand colors, scan barcodes to identify products and even detect moods on faces.

"This is a tremendous opportunity for Vuzix to leverage our smart glasses and augmented reality technology to help American veterans, including our nation's veterans and wounded warriors impacted by low vision and blindness improve their overall quality of life," said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix.

"We are very excited to help our nation's greatest warriors impacted by low vision and blindness to maintain and regain their independence," commented Sean Tibbetts, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of CyberTimez. "With Cyber Eyez, the Vuzix M300 is enhancing our nation's American veterans and wounded warriors lives and enabling them to resume their daily tasks, find jobs and regain their independence."

"Our goal with this project at the Wounded Warrior Program is to outfit thousands of American veterans and wounded warriors impacted by low vision and blindness, both men and women with smart glasses to help them find jobs, improve their quality of life and give them financial independence," commented Dr. David Godbold, National Director of the Wounded Warrior Program.

I've met the man . I've been a believer in Paul Travers. At first, Via information from a long ago former Vuzix employee. This before the company got to this stage. However It's the execution of a business plan that will make or break you. Could the recent stock offering been partly for the project ramp from the announced wounded warrior deal? The SA article seems to have started some short covering going on today.
