History[edit]

Founded in 2004 by Christian Guillemot.

In 2005, AMA launches its first JAVA games, mostly "life-style" games.

Between 2006 and 2008, AMA negotiated contracts with carriers in more than 40 countries.[4][5]

In 2012, the "Stars vs Paparazzi" and "Panic Flight" games reach one million downloads. Babel Rising 3D and Love Test Calculator count up more than 3 million downloads each (iPhone and Android).

Still in 2012, during the Google IO, AMA becomes a member of the new GoogleTM program the « Explorer » Program.

At this instant AMA starts developing video games on Google GlassTM. AMA introduces its first "Google GlassTM" game during the Gamescom 2013.

Further to a press release announcing that AMA was the first European in possession of Google GlassTM, the French surgeon Dr Philippe Collin got in touch with AMA. He invited AMA’s team in an OR in order to make videoconferencing tests and see what this kind of solutions could bring to his discipline.

On February 14, 2014, AMA managed the World Premiere of a live retransmission of a surgery, thanks to smartglasses between 2 continents, between France (Dr. Collin, CHP Saint-Grégoire, Rennes) and Japan (Dr. Goto, Nagoya).

Christian Guillemot then decides to open a production studio destined to the development of business applications in the medical field.

On 21 October 2014, GoogleTM chooses AMA as a "GoogleTM Glass at Work Partner".

Since then, AMA works on solutions allowing tele-assistance, tele-expertise and remote training.

In May 2015, AMA launches Xpert Eye P1, its mobile, hands-free videoconference solution on smartglasses.

In January 2016, AMA unveals its latest innovation Xpert Eye Mobility M1 as well as its "VAR" (Value Added Resellers) partnership with ODG (Osterhout Design Group) during the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
