MIT Spinoff, Xander, Unveils Captioning Smart Glasses at CES 2023

January 5, 2023

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — Xander will publicly unveil its first product at CES 2023. XanderGlasses are smart glasses that display real-time captions of in-person conversations to help people with hearing loss.

The CTA Foundation selected Xander as a winner of its Eureka Park Accessibility Contest, enabling the company to exhibit the glasses at CES.

XanderGlasses are powered by Vuzix smart glasses and are designed to be used like a simple “on” and “off” device. XanderGlasses work anywhere people need them, whether they are at home, at work, or in a loud public setting.

As XanderGlasses don’t rely on smartphone or cloud connectivity, they “are remarkably reliable and perfectly private”. In this augmented reality experience, captions are displayed seamlessly right in the field of view of the wearer.

Xander has already received awards and recognition at CES 2023:

  • CTA Foundation Eureka Park Accessibility Contest winner
  • AARP AgeTech After Dark Finalist
  • CES Eureka Park Pitch Competition Finalist

According to the company, XanderGlasses are expected to be available in Spring 2023. To learn more, visit Xander at CES 2023, booth 60517, or online at
