Wearing the OrCam glasses means less reliance on other people
A blind man has been helped to see using “artificial intelligence glasses”. The OrCam glasses have a tiny smart camera that can recognise text and even people’s faces. Marc Bilton was born deaf and at the age of 19 he was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, an inherited eye condition which affects the retina at the back of the eye. From then his sight then deteriorated and back in 2002 he was registered blind. “I’m able to read things that previously I was unable to,” he said.
