OrCam MyReader and OrCam MyEye are wearable artificial vision devices designed to assist people who are blind, visually impaired, or have a reading disability. The intuitive, lightweight smart camera instantly and discreetly reads printed and digital text aloud – from most surfaces – and depending on the model, it recognizes faces, identifies products, money notes, and color, all in real time.
OrCam MyReader features:
READ TEXT: Activated by a simple, intuitive gesture – pointing your finger or pressing a single button – OrCam MyReader makes newspapers, books, computer and smartphone screens, restaurant menus, labels on supermarket products and street signs accessible – in real time.
OrCam MyEye also reads text as stated above, along with the following features:
RECOGNIZE FACES: Following a quick one-time entry process, previously stored faces of people who are important to you – family members, friends, co-workers – are seamlessly recognized and announced by your own voice tag once they come into the OrCam MyEye smart camera’s view. Up to 100 faces of individuals can be stored.
IDENTIFY PRODUCTS: OrCam MyEye has a database of thousands of product bar-codes and colors. In addition, OrCam MyEye stores up to 150 of your favorite products – such as supermarket items, drugstore necessities and credit cards - instantly communicating them through your own voice tag, enabling an independent shopping experience.
IDENTIFY MONEY NOTES: Triggered by a simple pointing gesture, OrCam MyEye instantly announces the denomination of your country’s paper currency notes, making shopping, dining and paying quicker, easier – and more assured.
COLOR DETECTION: Pick out a shirt, choose a gift, shop with confidence with quick and accurate color detection.
