The OrCam MyEye

Post by Ashlee » Mon Sep 03, 2018 3:29 pm

When looking at the OrCam MyEye, one might think they are just another pair of glasses for blind people. However, the OrCam device is much more than that.

OrCam is an intuitive portable device with a smart camera mounted on the frames of a person’s eyeglasses. The device uses the power of Artificial Vision to assist people who are living with vision loss. They are interactive glasses for blind people to “see” their surroundings in daily life.

The OrCam device has two parts. There is the lightweight camera that clips onto the wearer’s glasses and is connected by a thin cable to the second part of the device which is a tiny wearable computer designed to fit in a pocket. The computer uses audio feedback to relay visual information (through speech) to the user via a mini earpiece.

These glasses for the blind have three main functions. It can read texts, recognize faces, and identify products.

The OrCam device has the ability to read printed text in real time from any surface. A person can read books, newspapers, signs, labels, menus and even text on a smartphone or computer screen. Essentially, they are glasses for the blind to “see” the world around them
