OrCam MyEye 2.0 – a revolutionary device for people who are blind, partially sighted, and have reading difficulties – will be launched at a series of free seminars at Reading Reinvented Expos across the country this week.
The Expo will include a presentation by Leon Paull, International Business Development Manager of OrCam Technologies Ltd, who will speak about the latest technology developments and product features.
Wireless, lightweight and about the size of a finger, OrCam MyEye 2.0’s breakthrough assistive technology instantly reads printed and digital text aloud: newspapers, books, restaurant menus, signs, product labels, computer and smartphone screens. The instant face recognition improves social situations and the identification of consumer products, colors and money notes provides a refreshing level of independence.
Magnetically mounted on the wearer’s eyeglasses or sunglasses frame and weighing less than an ounce, OrCam MyEye 2.0 is the only wearable artificial vision tech that is activated by an intuitive pointing gesture or simply by following the wearer’s gaze – allowing for hands-free use without the need of a smartphone or Wi-Fi.

OrCam MyEye 2.0 is the culmination of intense research and development by leading minds in the Computer Vision and Machine Learning fields. Thousands of users around the world have adopted OrCam’s technology and rely on it in their daily lives. The second generation OrCam MyEye 2.0 will enable many thousands more to adopt this revolutionary device.
OrCam Australian distributor, Quantum’s Tim Connell said, “About one in seven Australians has some evidence of age related macular degeneration and this number will increase as Australia’s population ages in the absence of effective prevention and treatment measures. Our mission is to empower people who are blind, partially sighted, and have reading difficulties, including dyslexia and other conditions, to study, work, and live their lives with a high degree of independence.”
