About Us

XRAI Glass creates software solutions powered by Augmented Reality. We convert audio into visuals allowing a pair of smart glasses to turn speech into subtitles, in real-time. We enrich and empower lives by giving people the tools to be themselves. Enabling the deaf and hard of hearing is just the beginning.

XRAI was created to connect people through technology.

After successful careers managing enterprise technology and charity businesses, XRAI’s experienced group of founders came together to make a tangible difference in people’s lives.

The XRAI team didn't want to build a healthcare brand. They wanted to create a lifestyle brand that treated its audience as a group of individuals with unique needs and unique lives.

They had witnessed first-hand, in their families and in their experience within the sector, how technology built for the deaf community tended to be assistive, looking to improve a hearing experience rather than enriching a conversation. This was a problem worth solving.

As the vision for XRAI and the technology for XRAI Glass progressed, the team’s passionate goal of enriching connection in everyday life started to become a reality.

Today, XRAI is going to market with Nreal as its first hardware partner, whilst remaining an independent software brand exploring many partnerships – with the goal of helping thousands to subtitle life, connect on a deeper level and reach their potential.
