BARCELONA, Spain and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Atheer, the company pioneering the new AiR™ (Augmented interactive Reality™) computing platform, today announced it has expanded an existing partnership with Vuzix® Corporation, a leading supplier of video eyewear and smart glasses products in the consumer, enterprise and entertainment markets. Under the terms of the new agreement, Vuzix will certify Atheer AiR Suite for Enterprise, including the platform's advanced gesture and voice detection capabilities, on M100 and M300 Smart Glasses.
"The M100 is already one of the most cutting-edge computer eyewear devices on the market, allowing users to interact hands-free with a wide variety of enterprise applications, but with our new partnership, M100 and M300 Smart Glasses will now also offer gesture and voice controls," said Alberto Torres, CEO of Atheer.
US companies have an estimated 110 million field professionals who need an efficient mobile computing solution to make hands-on work easier and safer. For deskless professionals such as field engineers, doctors, and technicians, M100 and M300 Smart Glasses with voice and gesture controls will make it easy to interact with critical enterprise apps without interrupting workflow - no more stepping aside from a sterile or intricate task to use a computer or tablet.
"Our goal is to keep Vuzix wearable devices at the forefront of technological applications and advances. Through partnerships with leading players like Atheer, we make a broad variety of apps available on our products," said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vuzix.
Both the Vuzix M100 and soon to be released M300 Smart Glasses with Atheer AiR Suite will allow wearers to interact with workflows, checklists, video calls, and more by simply waving a hand, using a gesture, or speaking a command. The Vuzix M300 is scheduled to launch in Summer 2016.

To get started creating custom workflows, video calls, and remote collaboration, AiR Suite for Enterprise is available for download on the Vuzix App Store, with the first 30 days free and the full subscription license priced at $49 per user per month.
