Doodling along surfing the web as you do, I came across this interesting gadget that really made me sit up. Any technology that helps to improve lives of others is plus for me and I love it. The Orcam My Eye is an aid for the visual impaired. A little camera connects on to any set of glasses with a speaker attached when a objected is pointed to by the user the information is read back; Crazy!. With facial recognization Simply take a photo of the person and it will ask you what their name is the information is stored and every time it recognises that person it will advise you by saying their name Amazing!. At $5000, grants through Veterans Affairs and NSW Health are available and can be applied for by contacting Quantum RLV.
