This dramatically improves the mobility and ability of visually-impaired people to “read” signs, packaging and publications.

The unit combines a 5.1 mega-pixel ST VX6953 camera module and the STV0987 image processor both from STMicroelectronics, with OrCam Technologies’ own algorithms to analyze and interpret the scene before the eye-glass-mounted device aurally describes it to the user. By pointing to an object, the wearer tells the OrCam camera what they need interpreted.

While the camera comes with a pre-stored library of objects, the wearer can continue to teach OrCam new objects as they use it. According to OrCam, there are 342 million adults worldwide with significant visual impairment. The US National Health Center for Health Statistics claims more than 21 million adults suffer from visual impairment.
