Air Metal Detector is a light weight (900 grams), completely wireless, foldable, affordable but professional metal detector that turns you smartphone into a control block. The AMdetector mobile application has a user-friendly interface with basic and advanced modes. It allows anyone from an amateur to a hardcore professional to easily find valuable metal items, such as: coins, jewellery, gold, electronics, wall wiring, etc. Air Metal Detector is great for treasure hunting, archaeology, security and many more. Sophisticated software and your smartphone's computing power allow it to differentiate various metal types, so you can exclude useless items.
Air Metal Detector has the world's first Bluetooth Coil with a patented Bluetooth transmission technology and proprietary signal analysis algorithms. Also has a built-in display and built-in LED light for lighting the search area.
You can also pocket your phone and use your smartwatch screen and wirless headphones.
Witness another conservative industry being disrupted by apps and mobile computing! With AirMD all major improvements and new functions including analytical algorithms, step by step guides, historical data of locations, GPS-based logs and sharing opportunities can be obtained with a touch of a button instead of buying a whole new product every time!
Treasures are there for you! Any place on Earth inhabited by people for more than 100 years will have tons of amazing artefacts not more than 0.5m (1.6ft) deep. AIR Metal Detector will help you find them!

Air Metal Detector allows you to find various valuable metal items, such as: coins, jewelry, gold, electronics, wall wiring, etc. It can be useful in different areas: treasure hunting, archaeology, security and many other. Air Metal Detector is able to differentiate the metal types, so you can exclude useless items.
For 40 years the metal detecting technology was the same, and we think it’s about time to change it!
All known metal detectors use big and expensive control blocks. Air Metal Detector uses your smartphone (Android or iOS) with an application on it instead of the control block. That allows us to make Air Metal Detector affordable and more compact, while keeping all the features of professional metal detectors (visible range, functions, etc.). Also the phone app gives us the opportunity to create a clear and user-friendly interface. Such a design became possible here and now due to computational power and connectivity capabilities (Bluetooth) of modern smartphones.
Air Metal Detector is a state-of-the-art hardware and software that unleashes the way to features unimagined before.
Air Metal Detector is the most compact and lightwieght detector in The World!
Relying on 12 years of the experience in treasure hunting, we successfully tested the prototypes globally with metal detecting hobby groups.
As pioneers of the new metal detecting era, our idea is to make metal detectors really fun to use! Now we are fully ready for mass production, we need your support to start it.

The Air Metal Detector Timeline:
Risks and challenges
We have worked for four years preparing for this moment and we are ready to start mass production. We went though six hardware prototypes, 7 app versions and uncountable firmware versions to get to this point. Our final prototypes are in the fields every day helping find amazing treasures.
We have released and extensively tested our Andriod app. The beta testing team has logged 200+hours field testing the last version alone. IOS app is being finalized now. Apps for smartwatches are in the works and more cool features to be released by the time of delivery.
We have our BOM, electrical layouts and mechanical design finalized. We have contacted dozens of manufacturers of plastic parts and electronics and selected the best. Our chosen production partners have extensive experience in manufacturing great products for some of the best names in the industry.
