Company Summary

Until now Digital Eyewear designers have been forced to make a fundamental choice between offering to their customers either big field of view experiences (ex. rich entertainment and high-performance simulation) OR compact, comfortable and stylish glasses. Innovega has developed a next generation optics platform that breaks through this media bottleneck by delivering immersive gaming, IMAX video, or panoramic HUD/AR from conventional glasses.
