As a company known for its laser scanning technology to create micro sensor and projection solutions, it has a number of patents related to it. The latest news, however, is that Microsoft’s pr team has officially come forward to deny it.
In addition, MicroVision CEO Sumit Sharma recently stated:
As stated in that March 11 report, we are actively working with multiple parties to assess IP authorization and other strategic opportunities.
We will continue to advise Craig-Hallum to continue to create maximum value for our shareholders.
