OrCam MyEye DemonstrationJune 29, 2016 12:13 pm
This morning members of the iSightCornwall team met with OrCam for a demonstration of the OrCam MyEye artificial vision device.
The OrCam MyEye is a portable device that can be mounted onto a pair of glasses allowing visually impaired people to understand text and identify objects and individuals.
The MyEye has 3 main functions:
Can read printed materials such as newspapers and restaurant menus as well as digital text such as television and e-mail.
Can identify new products and recognise previously entered products such as money notes and bank cards.
Can identify the faces of individuals previously photographed with the devices built-in camera and announce their name.
The below video shows our Assistive Technology Officer, Rod testing the OrCam MyEye’s facial recognition capabilities.
