Looks like Google is improving the original VR headset in this 2015 patent app so that it can communicate wirelessly with other devices. I'm guessing that would include a smartphone. (HMD is head-mounted device.)

0085] In one example, the HMD may include a wireless communication system for wirelessly communicating with one or more devices directly or via a communication network. For example, wireless communication system could use 3G cellular communication, such as CDMA, EVDO, GSM/GPRS, or 4G cellular communication, such as WiMAX or LTE. Alternatively, wireless communication system could communicate with a wireless local area network (WLAN), for example, using WiFi. In some embodiments, wireless communication system could communicate directly with a device, for example, using an infrared link, Bluetooth, or ZigBee. The wireless communication system could interact with devices that may include, for example, components of the HMD and/or externally-located devices.

So, Geo, did I miss a positive announcement that pertained to RFI and SPD?

Or what else didn't happen?

This is very positive.

The optical element could include at least one liquid crystal cell, an electrochromic cell, a suspended particle device, and/or a switchable mirror. The optical element could be operable to change the transmittance of the optical element and/or the optics.

It is logical that Google would not use its' P.r. moment to promote component makers. Nor in fact rermit them to step on Googles" message.

I saw an article about smartphones in the V.S. press book. Will we see that article again? I not only hope so but think we will.

I think Goggle has a real winner.

businessinsider.com

The fact that they even know what SPD is, is important depending on the meaning of is.


The instant vocal translation feature will be the deciding point in making sales among business people and world travelers, IMO.

Market did not think so, as stock down on the day. I can see REFR and V.S. working with a a producer that sells only a few million units and perhaps just above one million. That would still be great. But being a small part of the phone that could dominate the market is almost impossible to quantify.

Now is SPD a part of the smartphone or not?

If so when will know?

Revenues of REFR should tell us even if no one says anything.

In case no one noticed, sales for the S Class have dropped through the floor in the U.S. the last two months.

This is your periodic reminder that "suspended particle device" is a generic term and not a trademark of Research Frontiers, Inc. or anyone else. Any conclusions that references to the generic term have any connection whatsoever to Research Frontiers are made at one's own risk.

Thanks appreciate the reminder.
And I'll remind us that RFI has commercialized suspended particle device technology, with a portfolio of more than 220 approved patents as on March 2017, and many more patent applications in the approval pipeline.

Google, AFAIK, has no such patents. Perhaps the shorts can correct me?

Auger,
S.O.P.
Every time something great gets posted, they short the stock way down so the news has less impact
and it seems like a non event.
What you posted is obviously NOT a non event but shows a 'ready for prime time' event.
Thanks for posting it, I think.
