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 shows a first working sample in terms of technical feasibility, but not a final product design – as various fashionable product designs (in different materials and colors and slimmer shapes) will be available.

Constant Light Exposure

Regular sunglasses use fixed light absorption, while INOPTEC’s electronic eyewear is capable of adapting and changing light intensity in real-time, instantly going from transparent to extremely dark. 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.

The image below shows how regular sunglasses adapt to light (on the left) compared to INOPTEC smart glasses (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!

Instead of raising €20+x million to address all potential industries simultaneously, we will need only €2 million.
The demand from the “migraine as a condition” market is so high (3% of the world population) that we can grow “organically” into all other markets over time.
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.
In any case, we do not exclude raising growth money at a later stage to expand into the automotive, AR, rescue, and public safety markets.

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 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 ~ 3% of the world population are light-sensitive migraine patients who need to be protected with a “self-adapting hands-free solution” as INOPTEC can provide.

Investment Advantages based on our Strategy

Product Investment Opportunity
Light-triggered Migraineurs

are in desperate need of automatic light dimming sunglasses and smart protection. The unbearable pain and severe side-effects of taking opioids for decades, such as liver damage, has led to a surge in demand!


as a company is only on urgently needed products, with no other competitors in the market.

INOPTEC’s Advantage

is to develop personal protection equipment (PPE) for which neither clinical studies nor FDA approval are required.

How INOPTEC’s Smart Glasses can suppress light-triggered Migraine Attacks

Migraine is NOT curable, but painful light-triggered attacks can be avoided!
The market size for light-sensitive migraineurs 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.

You can choose any intensity level, similar to auto cruise control in automatic cars, where you set a fixed speed and this 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!

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

Check out some of 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).

Investor FAQ

We strongly recommend reading our Investor FAQ to better understand why our shares are a low-risk momentum 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%).

Simply put, if you invest, i.e., 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. Normally, the last (third) step in the waterfall model of the distribution of the profits in which all shareholders will participate will be the most important and most lucrative step => see company articles, which are also downloadable on the KCG website.

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

There are approved methods and standards (see IVS for example) for how an expert can evaluate the most likely return on a capital investment.

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

If a start-up has a valuation of 6M – 10M, but gets sold for 60M – 100M you can clearly see the 10x return on investment.

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 have found that most investors tend to invest in the industries they know best and in which they are allowed to invest (e.g., health tech funds will only invest in health tech, etc.).

Therefore, some local development investors have asked us if they are allowed to invest in “their subsidiary,” and our answer was yes –> together, we can create “your own subsidiary in your country”. – Please contact us to discuss 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 INOPTEC exit point, and no drag or tag-along clauses force minority shareholders to participate in a trade sale.

Yes, and this is an advantage of investing in a holding company structure. And the upside is 3 potential exits with an average low relative risk and positive cashflow generation.

Under one potential scenerio, an ROI of > 30 is possible, however, we have choosen a more conservative estimate for the sake of prudence.

We have done everything in our power to minimize the corporate tax burden of INOPTEC Group Ireland Ltd., which due to its location in Ireland is in a favourable position for taxation, required to pay corporate tax at a rate of 12.5%, one of the lowest corporate tax percentages in the world (even after the recent corporate tax harmonization towards 15%, which is not applicable in our case).

Furthermore, the taxable profit in Ireland will be reduced by patent licensing fees, within an intra-group intellectual property license where R&D subsidiary fees in Germany lessen the overall tax liability. Hence, liquidity/profits can accumulate under the KCG holding, from which you will get your return on investment.

Thus, we have undertaken a considerable effort to optimize shareholder value, while ensuring that we uphold the highest standards of legal, ethical and sustainable practices to protect the environment and to help those in urgent need of this vision enhancement system.

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:

  • and further eyewear specialists from this industry
  • 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.
