Xander is the manufacturer of XanderGlasses, a smartglass powered by Vuzix, which provides real time on-screen captions for individuals with hearing impairments. Product features include a noise-canceling microphone, a touchpad for customization of text size and position, rechargeable batteries, and the option to add prescription lenses. Furthermore, captions are provided through the smartglass itself and do not require cloud connectivity, with XanderGlasses reportedly having a 90% accuracy rate in crowded environments. In March 2022, the company’s first patent for its captioning solution was published by the World Intellectual Property organization.

The company generates revenue through retailing its XanderGlasses (priced at USD 4,999). 

Key customers and partnerships

As of January 2024, the company stated that there were 1,500 individuals waitlisted for its glasses.

In December 2021, Xander partnered with the US Department of Veterans Affairs to receive product feedback from veterans with hearing loss alongside opticians and audiologists in three VA health centers in the US. 

Funding and financials

In January 2023, Xander raised USD 1.4 million in pre-seed financing in a round led by investor Ray Stata.

Competitors: None (The product offering is unique; Xander offers real-time captioning solutions specifically for the audibly impaired.)
