About the breakthrough OrCam MyEye 2.0 artificial vision device
Wireless, lightweight and compacted into the size of finger, OrCam MyEye 2.0’s revolutionary assistive technology instantly reads printed and digital text aloud: newspapers, books, restaurant menus, signs, product labels, computer and smartphone screens. Instant face recognition improves social situations. Identification of consumer products, colors and money notes provides a refreshing level of independence. Magnetically mounted on the wearer’s eyeglasses or sunglasses frame and weighing less than an ounce, OrCam MyEye 2.0 is the only wearable artificial vision tech that is activated by an intuitive pointing gesture or simply by following the wearer’s gaze – allowing for hands-free use without the need of a smartphone or Wi-Fi.
According to the World Health Organization, over 3% of the world population is blind or visually impaired. A recent American Community Survey found that nearly 7.5 million Americans are affected by a visual disability. According to the National Institutes of Health’s National Eye Institute, the number of people with visual impairment or blindness in the United States is expected to double to more than 8 million by 2050.
“Our mission is to empower people who are blind, partially sighted, and have reading difficulties, including dyslexia and other conditions, to study, work, and live their lives with a high degree of independence,” said Mr. Ziv Aviram, OrCam Co-founder, President and CEO. “To most effectively impact the quality of life of our users, OrCam will continue to innovate and contribute to humanity through breakthrough artificial vision technology.”
