Prince William Experiences The OrCam MyEye

“Wow. That is absolutely incredible.” “That will help many people I am sure. What brilliant tech.” – says Prince William, referring to OrCam MyEye 

William, the Prince of Wales, made a truly historic first official visit of a member of the Royal Family to Israel. On June 26th, he met with 4 select top technology companies, one of them being OrCam Technologies. He got a chance to experience OrCam MyEye, the world’s most advanced assistive wearable technology. It reads text, recognizes faces, and identifies products for the blind, partially-sighted, and people with reading difficulties.

Presenting the OrCam MyEye 

Thanks to UK Israel Tech Hub, OrCam had the honor of presenting OrCam MyEye  to Prince William. Prince William used OrCam MyEye to read text, as well as to recognize Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. This is on the heels of presentations to both top Alibaba executives and Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela. The Prince experienced first-hand how OrCam MyEye, the most advanced wearable assistive device, uses AI technology to read text and recognize faces for people who are blind, partially sighted, or have reading difficulties.

Ziv Aviram is the co-founder and CEO of OrCam. He is also one of the founders of world-renowned Mobileye acquired this past year by Intel for $15.6 billion. He demonstrated the device for Prince William, and recently said: “…our breakthrough artificial vision technology has been empowering the lives of tens of thousands of British citizens and users around the world.”

OrCam MyEye 2 is available for purchase online in more than 30 countries (including the UK) and nearly 20 languages. .
With the world having observed this historic tour, the spotlight, even if briefly turned to life-changing technology. Devices such as OrCam MyEye change the world for the better, with the potential to improve the day-to-day lives of millions of people.
