Ocutrx Vision named to StartUp City’s list of promising wearable startups

“Team Oculenz is dedicated to delivering next generation AR/XR (extended reality) wearable technology that can be applied across industries and demographics, with perhaps no application more important than how our technology can improve the lives of low vision patients by connecting augmented reality with pioneering eye tracking technology to help ensure better patient outcomes,” Michael Freeman, CEO and CTO of Ocutrx, said in a statement.

Ocutrx’s flagship Oculenz AR technology is built on an open development platform that can be broadly applicable across industries, including medical, gaming, industrial, consumer, commercial and drones.

The Oculenz AR glasses feature USB-C connectors and Mini-HDMI ports included along with built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity.

The headset has a 110-degree field of vision with 2.5K resolution for each eye, two HD cameras five camera/sensors, noise-cancelling microphones and stereo sound options. Weighing less than 200 grams, the Oculenz is among the most lightweight AR headwear technology in the industry.
