See for Yourself

4 06 2013

home-mobilityOrCam was founded in 2010 with a clear mission – to use advanced computer vision to help the visually impaired and blind regain the functionalities that were lost.

For the past three years, the system was developed, tested and refined in Israel by a team of engineers, most of whom came from elite technological units of the IDF and academia.

OrCam harnesses the power of Artificial Vision to compensate for lost visual abilities. It is a sensor that sees what is in front of you, understands what information you seek and provides it to you through a bone-conduction earpiece.strip-product-closeup-2000x321

OrCam can read, recognize faces, identify objects, products and places, locate bus numbers and monitor traffic lights. It does all that with the most intuitive user interface you can imagine.

The device currently recognizes English-language text and beginning this week will be sold through the company’s Web site for $2,500, about the cost of a midrange hearing aid.
