We believe that
people are amazing

People are fast learners, creative and flexible, and can handle dynamic situations in life and at work. However, we only have our working memory to rely on, and are limited in how long we can keep our concentration when performing lengthy, repetitive tasks. Amplifying our natural capabilities will give us superpowers when it comes to manual tasks.

In recent years, the disciplines of computer vision and deep learning reached a higher level. New user experiences such as AR bring computing into the physical world, and advances in computer vision and AI allow machines to perceive real-life situations by analyzing massive amounts of visual information. Building on these new technologies, we can now enhance our natural skills where it matters the most.


We chose to apply this technology in healthcare first, helping sterilization technicians and OR professionals, because lapses in concentration and human errors in this field might have grave consequences.  The medical field relies heavily on people’s manual dexterity and creative problem solving, and giving them an edge will improve overall results immensely.


LayerJot’s products help people in healthcare to perform manual tasks such as finding, counting, sorting and conducting visual inspections, where the cost of errors is extremely high. Our spatial understanding platform harnesses computer vision and AI to understand context while processing visual information so that the device becomes a seamless extension empowering the person.

Vision & Technology

We connect human imagination, flexibility, and dexterity with the computational speed and strength of networked machines.

Our technology allows people to transcend their natural abilities to master new skills and perform superhuman tasks.

We harness the latest innovations in sensors, displays, deep learning, and computer vision to analyze a scene, identify objects of interest, understand their attributes, their states, and their relationships to create a new type of digital assistance for manual tasks. We call this core technology Spatial Understanding.

Our technology can be deployed in the cloud or on edge devices. Depending on the task, we choose the most appropriate form factor from mobile phones, the T3 system, or AR headsets.
