ITZEHOE, Germany and JENA, Germany, May 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OQmented, a technology leader in MEMS-based AR/VR display and 3D sensing solutions, has opened a new location in Jena, Germany. This step supports the company’s strategic decision to develop its solutions as complete systems with optics as an integral component. Jena has an international reputation for optics and photonics and is home to multinational corporations as well as startups, two universities and twelve research institutes. The local Research & Development team will enhance OQmented’s products with additional expertise.

OQmented’s fully integrated LBS-based (laser beam scanning) light engines are a key enabler for stylish and lightweight AR glasses.
