OrCam Technologies, his current venture, develops modern visual aids, who are especially helpful for blind, visually impaired, and dyslexic people. Based on artificial intelligence and machine learning, the OrCam MyEye 2.0 detects any printed and digital text on every surface via camera and reads it out loud over a microphone.
