seeing it as another milestone for the future of AR and Smart Glasses.
Christopher Grayson, an independent market analyst on SmartGlasses and Near-Eye Optics display systems praised the company’s ability to scale
Competitors like to note that Lumus’ cascade coated mirror is simpler than other waveguides, but they’ve proven they can scale. I most commend them on being not just a team of engineers, but a well run business. They can forge partnerships, close deals, and deliver on product.

In terms of the technical quality of optics, AR analyst Sarah Mautino stated that
They avoid aberrations tipical of holo/diffractive solutions. They have a huge know how, they were the first ones with waveguiding. They are pioneers to learn from. Before business they propose technical Quality.

Coming on the tails of a CapGemini Research Institute that shows 82% of companies currently implementing AR say that the benefits are either meeting or exceeding their expectations. The positive feedback lays a solid foundation for the widespread business adoption of augmented reality, which according to the study 46% of companies believe that the technology will become mainstream in enterprises within the next three years.
