18 Pico Projectors Augmented Reality ImagingNatural UI Wireless Charging Early still. Challenges with form factor, price, luminesense. Green laser seem to be the missing piece. Use case evident for consumer media sharing, video, photos. Huge hype. Still early. Interesting potential, however, AR is a platform not a service in on itself. Use case not yet well understood. Impact on both hardware, software and application layers. Great opportunity for differentiation. Very fragmented supply chain. Very few success stories. Many one off designs. Standardisation could have huge impact. Great opportunity for differentiation. Very exciting area for innovation. Many early players. Combining new materials as well as electronics. Certain use cases maturing (voice, gesture). Great opportunity for differentiation. Standard discussions settling. Few investable opportunities. Integration on device side happening. Ecosystem still missing. bTendo, LightBlueOptics, Maradin, Lemoptix, Photodigm Augmento, Metaio, Total Immersion, Zenitum, Layar, Wikitude, Tonchidot, Kooaba Innanosys, Invisage, Pelikan Imaging, Heptagon, Cambridge Mechatronics, Invisage, Anteryon, DxO Labs Fogale, Canatu, Soundchip, Primesense Powermat, Powerkiss, Fulton Innovation, Wipower 18 © Nokia Growth Partners 2012 Selected areas for review, high level commets
