INOPTEC has developed and patented the world’s first
Vision Enhancement System (VES)
—comprising SMART GLASSES and LEDs—
enabling instant light adaptation & protection (day or night),
to improve the wearer’s SAFETY & PERFORMANCE
under otherwise impossible viewing conditions!

Life-saving Protection & Empowerment

Human Enhancement Technology (H+) boosting your vision day & night

The System contains 2 innovations:

1.   Instant Light Adjustment | because the human iris reflex is too slow.

2.   Contrast Improvement | because people cannot see against the sun, nor at night.

The 2 Innovation’s Terminology and their Synonyms — please read this important explanation:

1.   “Instant Light Adjustment” also means “instant adaptation ability” for the human eye (the human eye is already dark-adapted and pre-prepared for a tunnel entry).
And it can also mean “light protection” (e.g., for light-sensitive migraine patients because the light level is always below their trigger level).

Glasses without LEDs are typically used during the day, and they are sometimes simply called: 
“Smart Glasses” or “Electronic Sunglasses”.

2.   “Contrast Improvement” happens on an even higher tech level because it allows you to “separate wanted and unwanted light” — a true “signal-noise improvement”.
This is typically the case when the sun stands deep in front of you – or when other disturbing light sources at night (e.g. oncoming car traffic) are in your way.
These disturbing light sources will be suppressed (by up to 95%), whilst essential light sources like your lamps or displays must remain visible.

Glasses with LEDs are typically used at night (or when the sun is deep), and they are sometimes called:
“Night-Vision Smart Glasses” or “Anti-Glare System (AGS)”.

INOPTEC’s Flagship: Smart Glasses

Innovation | Optics | Technology

INOPTEC has revolutionized high-tech eyewear so you can keep going, no matter what comes your way. Never stop with INOPTEC’s Vision Enhancement System!

* Please note that the film animation showcases a first working sample regarding technical feasibility, but not the final product design.
Various fashionable product designs in different materials, colours, and slimmer shapes will be offered.
The outer lenses can be plano or specs (we are planning for plus/minus 3.5 diopters) for DIY self-exchange.
If expensive specs were already bought, then over-the-glass (OTG) fit-over glasses will be available.

Constant Light Exposure

Regular sunglasses use fixed light absorption (left side in the picture below).
This includes slow-changing and UV/blue-light-dependent photochromic lenses like “Transitions”, which should not be used for fast-moving sports.

INOPTEC’s electronic eyewear (right side in the picture below) can adapt in real-time (1 millisecond), and can therefore change the light intensity at the eye in real-time AND gradually/step-less (> 64k grey levels) — so that any speed AND any amplitude of change, from tiny slow changes (walking in a forest) up to intense superfast changes (driving in/out of dark tunnels), will be “levelled out” to constant illumination.

This leads to a stable and constant brightness in the human eye, regardless of whether you are looking directly into the sun or in low-light conditions.

SUMMARY:  The left image below shows how regular sunglasses, including “Transitions”, cannot adapt to fast changes in light, compared to INOPTEC smart glasses with a real-time auto ND filter (on the right).

Regular Sunglasses VS INOPTEC Smart Glasses

Light at Eye = constant intensity !

STOP — you must understand this ANI-GIF before moving on

To understand the following applications, markets, etc. — you must first understand this GIF animation; otherwise, you will not understand why people are much better protected with dynamic sunglasses than with regular sunglasses.
Can you imagine what “constant light intensity” at the eye means?

Cruise Control for Light

It’s like driving your car with cruise control, where you set a fixed speed, which is maintained regardless of the terrain.

Whether you drive uphill or downhill, the speed stays the same since the intelligent controller and the powerful motor work for you!

INOPTEC’s light valves do the same with light — the amount of light reaching your eye is always constant.

Anti-Noise for Light

Since the dynamic absorption of the glass is gradual/step-less (> 64k grey levels), and since any variations in ambient light will be levelled out in real-time (<1ms) – this effect is also called the “anti-noise for light”.

An external Artificial Iris

Constant illumination is like a medical fixation for the human iris: The iris stays wide open, so the wearer is pre-adapted and pre-prepared to suddenly enter darkness (tunnels, shady areas) – which reduces the otherwise slow dark-adaptation time from ca. 30 seconds to zero!
With this solution, a fast-moving motorcyclist, for example, can now “instantly” see in a dark tunnel — which is otherwise not possible and life-threatening.

In the case of light-trigger migraine patients, they can choose a constant intensity, which is always BELOW their trigger level, so that they will never get a painful migraine attack from light.

Can you think of even more applications?

Go-To-Market (GTM) Strategy

Since focus is key, we will initially address only ONE market:
Light-triggered Migraine Patients - who are also active outdoors!

If we stay focused, we will need only 2 million EUR/USD/GBP (instead of raising, say, 20 million to address all potential industries). 

The demand from the “migraine as a condition” market is so tremendously high (3% of the world population) that we can grow “organically” into all other markets over time — even if competitors or other challenges might come up. 

Please be aware that migraine patients are not “physically disabled” — on the contrary, most young patients are very active — and bringing 3% of the world back to outdoor sports (MT Bike, Ski, etc.) automatically leads us into such sports markets.

Optionally, later we could expand into the automotive, AR, and rescue/public safety markets via growth money or B2B cooperations.

Migraine Fact Sheet

Migraine is NOT curable as it is a genetic, neurological disease.

Therefore, we cannot and will not claim that we can “heal” anyone, but we can PROTECT people from painful light-triggered migraine attacks (65% of all migraine patients).

N.B. Interesting for investors: This is why no medical FDA approval or clinical trials are needed – only the standards and regulations for Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) must and will be fulfilled.

We got advice from medical Professors and have listed some info videos on YouTube

If the attack is once triggered by too much light, it automatically gets worse, and it becomes a vicious cycle.

Thus, migraine patients try to protect themselves at all times by using several differently tinted sunglasses — and changing them manually with closed eyes is annoying and dangerous. 

Migraine as a condition affects every 10th person in the world, while migraine chronic forms affect every 20th person, resulting in 5% of the worldwide population.

SUMMARY:  5% migraine  x  65% light as a trigger  =>  ca. 3% of the world population are light-trigger migraine patients.

They must be protected with INOPTEC’s “self-adapting hands-free solution”.

Why is this business case unique?

No competitors ...

INOPTEC’s technology is many years ahead of any competition (regardless of patents).

All patented …

In addition to being the technology leader – we have also monopolised everything!

Urgent-need markets only …

INOPTEC will not produce any ” nice–to–have gadgets” — because this technology has many urgent-need applications.

Customers are willing to pay “any price” …

Migraine patients are willing to pay almost any price to avoid unbearable pain from light-triggered migraine attacks.
And many other users need a solution too.

Only announcement marketing is needed – to start sales process ...

Due to an imbalance between the people in need (>100 Mio) and the number of items produced (3k, 7k, 20k, 40k, 80k, …), only announcement marketing is needed to inform clinic doctors, migraine groups, and other influencers.
=> automatic sales process

How Migraine Attacks will be Prevented

Migraine is NOT curable, but painful light-triggered attacks can be avoided!

The market size for light-trigger patients is about 3% of the world population.

Example: If a light-sensitive migraine patient knows their personal trigger level, say 5000 lux, they can set constant illumination at 2000 lux via the mobile app, which gives the user a 3000 lux margin of safety.

Analogy: You can choose any intensity level, similar to auto-cruise control in automatic cars, where you set a fixed speed, which is maintained regardless of the terrain.

Response-Function-Sunglasses-Cheap-No-Effects Response-Function-Sunglasses-INOPTEC-Stable

Just ONE pair of smart sunglasses – is enough!

Ditch the need of multiple eyewear options with INOPTEC

Photosensitive migraine sufferers may need up to 4 different tinted sunglasses, from light-tinted to dark-tinted, to adjust manually to the ambient light.

When changing sunglasses, these people have to close their eyes to protect themselves from light exposure, forcing them to stop their current activity just to change glasses.

This inconvenient and unsafe daily action can be avoided using INOPTEC’s HANDS-FREE technology.

Say Goodbye to these!
Migraineurs typically wear 4 categories of sunglasses, changed manually with closed eyes!
Say Hello to INOPTEC!
Migraineurs will wear only 1 pair of automatically tinted sunglasses permanently!

“INOPTEC’s vision enhancement system will redefine the future of vision, when it comes to extreme light conditions.”

Other Industry Specific Applications

Outdoor Sports and Automotive

With its unique light capabilities, INOPTEC eyewear supports top performance by protecting you during fast movements, since the human iris reaction time, also called pupillary response, is very slow (up to 30 seconds) during dark adaptation (dilation time = iris opening time), for example when driving into a dark tunnel from bright sunlight by car or motorcycle (see the short film).

Currently, 10% of fatal road accidents are caused by visually impaired drivers. INOPTEC’s eyewear system can help prevent accidents and make driving significantly safer and was recently endorsed by the President of the AA in The Times.

In addition, cameras in self-driving cars could also be equipped with our anti-glare system (AGS®), which would be of great benefit, especially in low-lying sun or difficult night driving conditions.

AR Displays or Other Display

Take a look at the other leading AR brands we’re delighted to have met at EPIC!

It is important to note that the AGS® function mentioned above is the reason why our technology is referred to as a system and not just electronic eyewear, as INOPTEC can offer special LED lamps that run synchronously with the eyewear to avoid undesirable light (sun or glare from oncoming traffic at night, etc.) can be eliminated, while the desired light is always visible and thus a massive improvement in contrast is achieved.

The ratio between wanted and unwanted light is also known as the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR): the higher the SNR, the better the visibility / contrast.

However, all you need to remember is that any LED light source controlled by the wearer can provide essential light, such as a flashlight, a car headlight, an AR display, or any other display or instrument.

For this reason, AR companies such as Samsung, Facebook / Luxottica etc. are already interested in our US patent, which ensures the readability of AR displays in bright sunlight. This will be very important in the future for any AR display used outdoors (which is why most of the AR demo videos on YouTube were recorded indoors).

Low Vision:  Cataract, Eye Floaters, IOL Implant, LASIK

INOPTEC, Low Vision, Cataract, IOL Implant

Individuals with low vision require constant brightness for various reasons.

If the illumination is too dim, reading becomes challenging, and if it’s excessively bright, the scattering bodies (e.g., cataracts and eye floaters) in the eye generate disruptive halos, impeding readability once more.

Too much light —or— not enough light, is a big issue.

In addition to the above, people with restricted iris function, e.g., after an Intraocular Lens (IOL) implant or after a LASIK operation, are very light-sensitive.

We have developed an ARTIFICIAL IRIS that consistently outpaces the human brain, ensuring constant brightness in the eye at all times.

People with cataracts or eye floaters have full control over the brightness of the halos so that they can adjust the smart glasses to optimal illumination—not too bright, not too dark.
This is a one-time adjustment; the smart glasses will retain all settings until they are updated either by the user, through a training program, or remotely by an eye doctor.

In addition, constant illumination is also particularly beneficial post-surgery, following intraocular lens (IOL) implantation, as iris function is limited afterwards — a procedure that is among the most common surgeries globally.

Therefore, INOPTEC’s smart glasses empower individuals with low vision to navigate changing light conditions effortlessly, significantly improving their quality of life.

The potential applications for low vision and post-operative scenarios are limitless.

The market size exceeds $1 billion, and the CAGR is about 10%, driven by an increasingly ageing society.

X-Ray Vision:  Firefighters can see through a wall of fire — like Superman!

INOPTEC X-Ray Vision to see through a wall of fire
INOPTEC X-Ray Vision to see through a wall of fire

Infrared rescue cameras will not work because they get blinded by fire! 

Firefighters cannot see through a wall of fire, and standard infrared rescue cameras are blinded by the fire — so no one can see the people in despair and need.

INOPTEC’s Vision Enhancement System lets the wall of fire disappear, allowing the firefighter to see through the fire, like Superman, to identify individuals requiring rescue.

There is no alternative in the market — hence, total monopoly, there is not even indirect competition.

This scenario falls into the “contrast improvement and night vision” category.

Seeing this with your eyes feels like magic — as if you have superpowers!

With full clarity and control over the operation, casualties can be rescued.

Multi-Channel Vision:  Rescue Teams with Headlamps cannot glare at each others!

Helmet-mounted headlights are a good idea, but when colleagues blind each other, everyone is in danger! 

After a storm with fallen trees at night, firefighters with chainsaws must see everything perfectly and not blind each other with their helmet-mounted headlights, which can quickly happen when standing directly opposite each other.

There are hundreds of other scenarios in which at least two rescue people must work on the same jammed car door at night (see pictures above), the same patient, road blockage, or whatever is needed. So, the probability of blinding each other is very high.

The closing reflex of the human iris is very fast (less than a second) compared to the very slow opening time (dark adaptation times are at least 30 seconds, if not minutes), so the rescue person will be incapacitated and in situations where time and action matter.

Up to 10 people – (i.e. the typical size of a fire brigade team, police tactical unit, a military squat section or even divers with under-water lamps) – can have “perfect undisturbed glare-free Individual Channel Vision without any interference or dazzling” from their team partners — or any third party (citizens, enemy, whatsoever).

The amount of light visible from team partners can be individually selected.

If the team is larger than 10 people, the smart glasses’ standard anti-glare function is always switched on, even if they are not part of the “Perfect Vision Multi-Channel Vision Group” — which means, any accidental exposure to too much light will be levelled out in any case.

Like tuning into different radio stations without interference, up to 10 people can “only see what they need to see” (channel definition) — without the danger of being accidentally blinded by a colleague standing opposite within the same rescue or law enforcement team.

Since this is a very likely situation, INOPTEC’s Multi-Channel Vision is your solution to ensure everyone’s safety and performance.

Invest now with a positive social impact!

10x ROI within 7 to 10 years + 20% LP per annum.

Investor FAQ

Please read the Investor FAQ to understand better why KCG shares are considered a low-risk stock with high future potential.

And why our shareholder list reads broadly like the Who’s Who of C-level experts.

A robust financial estimation presents a conservative 10:1 ROI ratio in 7–10 years – please download this IRR-Table (IRR > 40%).

If you invest x EUR, you will get back 10x EUR within 7–10 years after we enter the market (see also the IRR Table above).
In addition, you will get a liquidation preference (LP) of 20% p.a. in rank 1 – which is also a safety net since, after 5 years, you have gained the right to get all your money back, especially when we liquidate all the patents (worst-case scenario).

As the owner of preference shares, you have the legal right in rank 1 (before the owner of the ordinary shares can access profits) to secure a return on your investment. The value of this right will depend on how long you have held the shares since 20% will automatically accumulate over the years until profits are available for distribution.

Why is this important?

The liquidation preference provides a safety net for investors in the unlikely event of a company liquidation, so investors get their money back, before ordinary shareholders (e.g., after 5 years x 20% p.a. = 100% money-back guarantee, if profits are available, e.g. after the liquidation of all patents).

Again, this is just a safety net, as typically, the last (third) step in the waterfall model of the distribution of the profits, in which all shareholders will participate, will be the most significant and lucrative.

=> See company articles in the download section of the KCG websitehttps://knollcapitalgroup.com/downloads

Yes. There are no lock-up periods, and everyone is free to do whatever they like. All preference shares are tradeable peer-to-peer at arm’s length — but not publicly, as we are not a PLC.
KCG cannot guarantee to buy back your shares before INOPTEC’s market entry or to find a new buyer for you. However, you can usually find a new buyer in business angel networks, and we will always try to assist you, which we have already done successfully.

There are approved methods and standards (see IVS, for example) for evaluating the most likely return on capital investment.

One method is benchmarking, where you look at similar exits in the past (e.g., VUZIX, RECON, and others sold shares well beyond 100 million. EUR/GBP/USD.).

If a start-up has a valuation of 6M—10M but is sold for 60M—100M, the 10x return on investment can be seen.

Since most innovative high-tech startups of this calibre sell for well beyond 100M – and since we could have 3 exit scenarios under the holding company (see next question), we are confident that a higher ROI is possible, but we prefer to be more prudent in our estimation.

We’ve observed that most investors typically invest in industries they are familiar with and can invest in (e.g., health tech funds focusing solely on health tech, etc.).

Therefore, we plan to establish 3 subsidiaries:  health  |  outdoor sports  |  rescue/public safety.

Each subsidiary can be sold separately — hence 3 exit scenarios.

Moreover, certain state-driven local development funds have inquired whether they can invest in “their subsidiary”, and our response has been affirmative. Together, we can establish “your subsidiary in your country”.
Please reach out to us to explore further details.

No! There is no need to sell shares since the profit distribution rights are already linked to this preference share class (see publicly available corporate articles). In this way, this share class feels like a bond.

You don’t have to sell your shares at an “exit point”, and no drag or tag-along clauses force minority shareholders to participate in a trade sale.

Yes, this is the advantage of investing in a holding company structure — akin to investing in a fund, where portfolio diversification leads to lower risks -and- ideally higher returns in case of more than just “one” exit scenario.

Ideally, an ROI > 30x is possible.

However, for prudence, we have chosen to stick to the ROI > 10x narrative in all our primary documents — but we deliberately used the ‘greater symbol’ (>) to indicate much higher potential.

Yes, due to our overall sales headquarters, INOPTEC GROUP IRELAND Ltd, the corporate tax burden of 12.5% is one of the lowest in the world.

Moreover, the taxable profit in Ireland can be reduced even further by patent licensing fees within an intra-group intellectual property licence, while R&D subsidiary fees in Germany lessen the overall tax liability.

The founder himself always undertakes a considerable effort to uphold the highest legal, ethical, and sustainable standards:
“We must help those in urgent need of this vision enhancement system and protect our environment — whilst optimising shareholder values.”

Existing Shareholders:

Distinguished shareholders act as brand ambassadors, as most are renowned CEOs from the tech industry.
The KCG shareholder list reads essentially like the industry’s “Who’s Who”, comprising C-level partners from –or associated with– the following companies:

  • Fleming Family & Partners Capital Management (UK)
  • U2T-Photonics-FINISAR (DE/USA)
  • P3 GROUP (DE)
  • SCHOLZ High Tech in Plastics
  • CIPRES – SLS & eColor (DE)

Finally, a personal note from the founder:

As a personal note, I would like to add that openness, fairness, modern thinking, and transparency are our company philosophy. We do NOT operate with hidden shareholder side letters or preferential treatment. Everything we do is publicly downloadable from the GOV.UK Companies House, with the aim of ensuring fair and equal rights for every shareholder.

This is also why I am inclined to consider going public (e.g. AIM London, EURONEXT, NASDAQ, etc.), which is also a realistic alternative to selling three subsidiary companies (trade sales), but we will leave all options open for now. Rest assured, I will take care of you as a shareholder, as all our interests are aligned in the same KCG company, where I am also a shareholder like everyone else. We are all partners with the same goal.

We are a company that cares deeply about our product, customers, and investors – and we will never give up pushing this business forward, no matter our challenges.

Yours sincerely,
