About Lumus

Lumus is an Israeli augmented reality optics company that has developed the most important display technology the world has ever seen.

Lumus Vision

Leading technology companies developing AR devices have stated that achieving a near to eye display that fits into a normal looking pair of glasses, performs well, is efficient enough to have a battery life that lasts all day, with an image bright enough to use outdoors is the hardest technology challenge of our time.

Lumus has the answer. Our reflective waveguide technology will allow the metaverse to be accessed outdoors with smart glasses that look like normal glasses.

Our technology is already used by spinal surgeons across the US as well as fighter pilots flying A10 and F16 aircraft.
