In the meantime, Mojo Vision have admitted that they can't get the lens to work
Have they, or is that just a cynical interpretation?

It is an interpretation, but I would not call it a cynical one.

If you read their "new direction" announcement, it is the usual weazel story: "We have made great progress, but the mean capital market does not want to fund further development -- not our fault if course, but due to the global economy." Yeah, sure. They are years past their target launch date, and all they got is this "prototype" they shopped around last year.

Why haven't they demonstrated the thing switched on, projecting something, onto a white screen on the bench, a single time? That promo video they produced is very carefully worded to avoid saying what actually "worked" in the prototype...

OK :)

It is cynical, though. Which, I suppose, is only to be expected in this topic. Perhaps I should have asked if it were 'overly cynical'.

Ok, I will take "adequately cynical".  ;)

These morons can't even design a proper webpage without a bunch of white/black space.
Seems like a bunch of BS to bilk investors.

It is entertaining to look at these management slides. A small start-up really needs a big organization to get investors' money wasted. I guess this company has an HR department with naturally several hierarchical layers.

   Kind of ironic, that 'VISION' Company publishing blurry photographs of the HR Dept.
Too blurry to read the names or titles of those 8 or so people.
Actually, any formal company presenting blurry photos, wanting investors, is shoddy, a bit.

Nah, it's just the screenshot which was posted here that makes the lettering a bit blurry, to limit file size. The original resolution on their web page is fine, and there are even bio sketches for each clickable portrait: https://www.mojo.vision/about

What I love about that page is how it opens with the headline "Introducing Our Innovators", and then immediately changes its mind as you scroll down, introducing the management team instead. ;D
