About Us

Founded in 2018, tooz technologies GmbH is a joint venture of Carl Zeiss AG and Deutsche Telekom AG.

We put the wearer in focus and ensure that the tooz optics platform and designs are not only feasible to create but also desirable for daily use. Tooz smart glasses display information discreetly to the user – upgrading the essential purpose of regular glasses.

Smart glasses designed to help and not hinder, our solutions enable unique products and infinite user experiences.

Bringing together the core competencies of both joint-venture partners, we’re pushing the envelope of wearable technology. With scalable and cost-effective manufacturing processes, we offer a full range from optics up to reference designs consisting of optics, frame, electronics and software for both B2B and B2C applications.

tooz is headquartered in Aalen, Germany, where we are continuously pushing the limits when it comes to optical engineering and smart glass technology.
