  • Why Unipixel Investors Thought They Saw Bigfoot. 4 comments
    Jun 5, 2013 12:20 PM | about stocks: UNXL

    My name is Noah Oliva, and as a rockstar graphic designer, X-files alumni, and future investment legend, I have decided to branch out and try my hand at some reporting, because there are few times in which all of my favorite things come together.

    You have never seen a bigfoot in person, but you know what one looks like. Why? Is it the descriptions in the urban legends? Maybe it's the testimony of scientists describing how one would look like if it existed. It appears that Mr. Seth Shaw overheard such legends about unipixel's mesh being flawed from disgruntled employees when he wrote his article a few days ago, so he decided to go to unipixel headquarters and find the elusive flaws. How do I know he heard about the flaws BEFORE going to unipixel(even though the article is written to represent the contrary)? Because he went prepared with not one, but TWO cameras, and he also knew what he was looking for. You might be asking, "But brah, how u no brah went 2 unipixel, brah?" Well brah, My mad CSI skills and basic knowledge of digital photography extracted the data from the pictures using exif:

    regex.info/exif.cgi

    Latitude/longitude: 30° 11' 4.8" North, 95° 28' 50.4" West
    ( 30.184667, -95.480667 )

    2013:03:21 14:17:22
    2 months, 14 days, 6 hours, 14 minutes, 10 seconds ago

    For the few that can't read gps, it says: Unipixel headquarters March 21st 2013.

    So this is bad, right? It proves the pictures are real. These are in fact pictures of Unipixel mesh. So is bigfoot real? Or is this a picture of a blurry bear? To find out, you need an expert opinion. Too bad the only true experts on Unipixel mesh would be those fraudster unipixel employees that are now trying to cover up the truth... if only there was footage of a unipixel founder explaining the meshes months BEFORE this whole- ROLL 212!

    Mr. Dan Van Ostrand VP Says at 6:25 "I mentioned in my presentation, that not only do we print copper, but we can also put a blackening agent on the surface of the copper to make it much much darker. So here's an example of printed copper system with a blackening agent so you can see its much much darker."

    So wait, there are different meshes? Including one where they put black stuff on it to MAKE IT DARKER and more visible? why didn't seth take pictures of ALL the meshes? Dan even has some ontop of white paper, how silly of him!

    "But what about the demo brah? What does your awesome csi skills say about that?" Well, an exif data search gives nothing. This is a clear giveaway that its an edited picture. It's also easy to tell because I doubt the words "broken lines" with an arrow was scotch taped to the display. Seth might have been helping the viewer, but None the less, the original wasn't in the article, so its unreliable. Why? cuz photoshop:

    minus.com/lboAnS9ouLoW9D

    or photoshop might not have been used, it could just be a guy in an ape suit, the top two lines are different colors, and it SEEMS the demo (when it was on youtube) generated a random color each time the person touched the screen. Why couldn't the person just have double tapped the screen as they were dragging their fingers to make it LOOK like broken lines? You know, like the legends said?

    So Maybe this was all a poorly thought out attempt at guerilla(lol) reporting, but what if its not? Who is this group of people looking for faulty meshes? Why did they wait so long to publish there findings? What really happened on March 21st? What if Seth is somehow in cahoots with Craig-Hallum? What if bigfoot can't be found cuz aliens?

    Meh,I remain skeptical.

    Then there's the problem of the company having copped to broken lines being expected due to the age of the demo unit.

     

    If UNXL says there are breaks in the lines and Seth says there are breaks in the lines, Who're gonna believe?
