I doubt LC exists that is clear enough in the 'clear state' to use in front of a camera lense--unless there is some post processing that can correct for the haze.

The clearest LC that I have found is something like 15% haze vs 2% for SPD. We'll never see Dyed LC compete and win against SPD for museum cases....

Is it fair or correct to say that reading this patent one possible conclusion is that the patent applies to using "the switchable layer" not to making such a layer?
I think so.

One of our licensees, Smartglass Int wins a big project at Intel HQ...bad news is that it doesn't use SPD.

A new version of the Google Daydream View VR headset (to complement the new Pixel phones)
Google does have a 2016 patent for a head-mountable VR device with adjustable transparency. The device could be controlled via cell phone.

The remote device may be any type of computing device or transmitter including a laptop computer, a mobile telephone, or tablet computing device, etc., that is configured to transmit data to the device. The remote device and the device may contain hardware to enable the communication link, such as processors, transmitters, receivers, antennas, etc.

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.

Review of current Daydream View headset.


At least we know that Google knows what SPD is.

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?
