Learn why Aira decided to invest in customized hardware to optimize delivery of their Software AI
service for people who are blind or have low vision.

Off the shelf smart glasses (like Google Glass) had multiple limitations including connection /WIFI
challenges, and they attracted unwanted attention. What the service really required was a customized
design that relates to the day in the life of a blind/ visually impaired person.

Aira teamed with DDSTUDIO, a Human Centered Design firm, to develop Horizon Smart Glasses.
The Development team leadership will share how their ‘multidiscipline team approach’ enabled them to design a startup product for Aira in less than one year. They will discuss the right time to incorporate various specialized skills, including materials science and prototype manufacturing.
