  1. What happened to Samsung's TOF group? I am hearing rumors that they are shutting it down.

  2. I don't believe that ToF is a priority for Samsung right now. Probably they have their hands full with existing high volume product lines.

    Anyway, Samsung venture guys are pretty independent, I think.
