Note 2 – Revenue Recognition and Contracts with Customers
 
Adoption
 
On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the new guidance on Revenue from Contracts with Customers under Topic 606 using the modified retrospective transition method. Results for reporting periods beginning after January 1, 2018 are presented under Topic 606, while prior period amounts are not adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with our historic accounting treatment under Topic 605. We recorded a net decrease to opening accumulated deficit of $81,724, as of January 1, 2018 due to the cumulative impact of adopting Topic 606, with the impact primarily related to our post contract support (PCS deferred revenue). Refer to the following table for the detailed effect to our consolidated balance sheet upon adoption:

Under the modified retrospective method of adoption, we are required to disclose the impact to revenues had we continued to follow our accounting policies under the previous revenue recognition guidance. We estimate that the impact to revenues for the year ended December 31, 2018, primarily due to deferrals of PCS amounts for product shipped offset by the amortization of the unearned revenue related to our prior PCS deferred revenue under Topic 605, would have been immaterial.
 
Disaggregated Revenue
 
The Company’s total revenue was comprised of four major product lines: Smart Glasses and iWear Video Headphones Sales, OEM Product Sales, Waveguide Sales, and Engineering Services. The following table summarizes the revenue recognized by major product line:

Significant Judgments
 
In applying the new guidance under Topic 606, we performed an assessment of judgments used that could potentially impact both the timing of our satisfaction of performance obligations and our determination of transaction prices used in determining revenue recognized by major product line. Judgments made include considerations in determining our transaction prices for our standard product sales that include an end-user 30-day right to return if not satisfied with product and include payment terms that are between Net 30 and 60 days. For our Engineering Services, performance obligations are recognized over time using the input method and the estimated costs to complete each project are considered significant judgments. For the years ended December 31, 2018, 2017 and 2016, the significant judgments previously mentioned did not have a material effect on the timing or the amount of revenue recognized under the new guidance.
 
Performance Obligations
 
Revenues from our performance obligations satisfied at a point in time are typically for standard goods (Smart Glasses, iWear Video Headphones and Waveguides) and our OEM Products, which are recognized when the customer obtains control and ownership, which is generally upon shipment. The Company also records revenue for performance obligations relating to our Engineering Services over time by using the input method measuring progress toward satisfying the performance obligations. Satisfaction of our performance obligations related to our Engineering Services are measured by the Company’s cost incurred as a percentage of total expected costs to project completion as the inputs of actual costs incurred by the Company are directly correlated with progress of completing the contract. As such, the Company believes that our methodologies for recognizing revenue over time for our Engineering Services correlate directly with the transfer of control of the underlying assets to our customers.
 
Our standard product sales include a twelve (12) month assurance-type product warranty, except in certain European countries where it can be two years for some consumer-focused products. In the case of our OEM product and waveguide sales, some include a standard product warranty of up to eighteen (18) months. In 2018, we began offering extended warranties to customers, which extend the standard product warranty on product sales for an additional twelve (12) month period. All revenue related to extended product warranty sales is deferred and recognized over the extended warranty period. Our engineering services contracts vary from contract to contract but typically include payment terms of net 30 days from date of billing, subject to an agreed upon customer acceptance period.
 
The following table presents a summary of the Company’s net sales by revenue recognition method as a percentage of total net sales for the year ended December 31, 2018:

Remaining Performance Obligations
 
As of December 31, 2018, the Company had
$148,000 of remaining performance obligations related to its extended warranties. The Company expects to recognize this deferred revenue on a twelve (12) month straight-line basis beginning in October 1, 2019.
