TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Israeli unicorn OrCam Technologies has launched the MyEye, a wearable assistive device designed for visually impaired people, which would meet the demand of the nearly 60,000 blind or visually challenged people in Taiwan.

The OrCam MyEye is a lightweight wireless device that can be magnetically mounted to an eyeglass frame. It recognizes text, banknotes, human faces, colors, patterns, etc., and describes them to users through the built-in speaker or Bluetooth devices, helping visually challenged users to complete daily tasks more easily and independently.

This revolutionary smart device can be operated by either voice commands or gestures. Users can simply point to an object and let the device do the rest of the work, with the whole process taking less than three seconds.    [FULL  STORY]
