Atheer AiR is said to be the world's most interactive pair of 3D smart glasses for deskless professionals. This innovative product targets people across many different fields and provides them with critical information right in their field-of-view. Such information may include everything from image annotations to workflow charts, video calls, or web data. [1]


Atheer AiR Glasses leverage the power of existing Android applications by enabling professionals, such as doctors, technicians, and engineers, to enhance their productivity with rich information and distraction free communication.

The glasses itself are powered by a custom built Android operating system called AiR OS. Businesses can take advantage of the collaboration-centric AiR Suite for Enterprise, which allows easy access to critical information. The AiR SDK allows developers to create new applications that utilize many different sensors that come built into the AiR Glasses.[2]


The AiR glasses feature two 720p displays capable of displaying 60 frames per second. Each display provides 50-degree field of view.

A 3D depth camera enables gesture interaction and works in conjunction with a 9-axis inertial measurement unit (e.g. accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer), dual RGB cameras, and a directional microphone.

The processor is housed in a separate unit that connects to the glasses with a cable. This unit houses a NVIDIA Tegra K1 chip, 2GB of RAM, up to 128GB flash storage, and a 3100mAH Lithium-ion battery. The battery is hot-swappable for extra long use in the field. Additionally, there's also Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, USB-C, and HDMI Out support [3]

The AiR Suite for Enterprise is comprised of three individual applications: AiR Hub, AiR Flow, and AiR Designer. Together, they improve collaboration, management, and rapid task flow deployment.

AiR Hub is a cloud-based collaboration and management console that provides end users with remote expert guidance for AiR Flow users through live video, photo, and text. It supports multi-device & user profile management and integrates with leading enterprise databases & applications.

AiR Designer is a task flow creation tool that lets users author procedures, checklists, and task flows with a simple drag-and-drop interface.

AiR Flow is a customizable task flow and collaboration application that offers remote expert and multimedia collaboration with AiR Hub and easy interaction for task flow compliance.[4]


The Atheer AiR is designed to work with all existing Android applications.


Developers who would like to take full advantage of everything Atheer AiR has to offer can use the AiR SDK. It's built on the Android API to allow easy design of new solutions and natural integration of rich sensor data provided by the AiR Glasses. The platform also supports common 3rd party toolkits such as Vuforia and the Unity 3D engine.[5]



The company behind AiR (Augmented interactive Reality), Atheer, is based in Mountain View, CA and is backed by prominent investors including Bobby Yazdani, Co-Founder of Saba Software, and Farzad Naimi, Co-Founder & Managing Partner, RONA Holdings. Their wearable glasses are designed to enhance the productivity and safety of deskless professionals at Fortune 1000 companies.[6]
