Rohinni – A Leader in Mini and Micro LED Technologies

Physicist Richard Feynman once gave a lecture – without notes, like a proper presenter – in which he talked about how there’s plenty of room at the bottom. The year was 1959, and Feynman was proposing that we manipulate matter on an atomic scale, ideas that would eventually become nanotechnology as we know it today. […]

Ambarella Becomes an Artificial Intelligence Stock

“Ambarella is an artificial intelligence (“AI”) company,” says the first line in a recent Ambarella (AMBA) investor presentation to Morgan Stanley. More than four and a half years ago, we wrote about how Ambarella was seeing very strong revenue growth selling semiconductor processing solutions for video in four primary segments: camera-based advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), wearable cameras […]

Altair Engineering Stock is a Play on Simulated Design

Investing in disruptive technologies appeals to investors because it promises high growth over short periods of time when compared to a slow-moving technology benchmark like Nasdaq. In many cases, it’s a get rich scheme in disguise. In other words, if that “next Microsoft” you think you’re holding can’t manage to beat a bog-standard market benchmark, you’ve […]

Telematics in Cars Can Reduce Traffic Accidents

We previously hypothesized about an autonomous taxi company that could get almost constant utilization from vehicles as opposed to the 5% current utilization of your average car. […]

Is Smart Glass a Smart Investment Yet?

Does it seem like everything is becoming smarter? Soon even your toothbrush will have more computing power than the space shuttle. One smart technology that’s been around well before the term came into vogue is smart glass. But is it a smart investment yet? Smart glass, also referred to as dynamic or switchable glass, is […]

5 Connected Vehicle Technology Startups

In a recent article, we demystified some of the terminology used to describe the Internet of Things (IoT), a technology that promises to connect all the devices around us and ultimately make the world a better place. If that utopian vision doesn’t come to fruition, then at least marketing people everywhere will have more “big data” on […]

Metromile: Pay As You Go Auto Insurance

In a previous article, we talked about a startup company called Automatic Labs which allows you to turn your old car into a smart car with the introduction of a simple device that plugs into the OBD-II port of your vehicle.
