The OrCam MyEye device could be the gadget that revolutionizes artificial vision, and it could be the device that changes the lives of the visually impaired! The OrCam MyEye is an assistive device that converts visual information into spoken word.
The OrCam MyEye device has three main functions: reading, identifying products and recognising faces. This device comes in the form of wearable glasses and, if you turn your head towards a product, text or face, the glasses turn create audible speech to tell you exactly what you are reading.
This intuitive, portable and wearable device uses a smart camera mounted on the frames of your eyeglasses. It can read printed text, identify objects and recognize faces in REAL-TIME.
This means that people with impaired vision can now read newspapers and labels, operate on a computer or smartphone, identify objects and find familiar faces – an incredible step forward in technology for the disabled.
This device can be used at home as well as on the go and is already available to buy. It is an incredible way to finally give blind people the freedom, self-reliance and independence they deserve by using a portable, unobtrusive and discreet device with ease.
