OrCam MyEye 1 is a breakthrough wearable artificial vision device designed to assist people who are blind, visually impaired, or have a reading disability. The intuitive, lightweight smart camera instantly and discreetly reads printed and digital text aloud – from any surface – and recognizes faces, products, and money notes, all in real time.
The mini-camera is simply clipped onto a pair of glasses and can be activated by looking or pointing at items. Most alternative visual and reading aids depend on cumbersome equipment that works only in controlled circumstances. Software apps are also available, yet they provide limited usage on smartphones. OrCam can be used – at home, in the office, at school, in a grocery store, on a street, in a restaurant, on the airplane – everywhere!
