Microvision's PicoP projector

MicroVision just can’t seem to cut its losses. The maker of visual display technologies and Pico projectors announced today that it lost $9.8 million during the first quarter, up from $9 million for the same period last year. Its revenues grew slightly to $1.7 million for the quarter.

Even more concerning, MicroVision’s cash and cash equivalents fell to $6.8 million for the period ending March 31, down from $13 million. The company had previously warned last fall that its cash supply was dwindling.

“We believe we are positioned to achieve our goal of making PicoP Gen2 display engine technology available this year with a licensing and royalty business model that capitalizes on our investment in our patented PicoP technology and the associated reduction in operating expenses,” said MicroVision President and CEO Alexander Tokman in a statement.

Redmond-based MicroVision has lost 80 percent of its value in the past year, and it now shows a market value of $39 million.

    As soon as MVIS announces its collaboration with Google’s project glass, the PP will recover and move to never before seen highs.  So, you have to ask yourself one question, got mvis?

      I don’t know about Microvision really making a recovery. They banked on laser projector tech which is being outclassed by LED Projection devices. Consumer preference is always going to go to whatever company can produce the best product at the lowest price. Look at AAXA Technologies, they chose to abandon laser projection tech because the market just isn’t there.
