JERUSALEM, ISRAEL—OrCam Technologies was named a CES 2022 Innovation Awards Honoree in both the Accessibility and Health & Wellness categories for the OrCam MyEye Pro, an AI-driven, voice-activated wearable technology device for people who are blind, visually impaired or have reading challenges. The dual honors are Orcam’s third consecutive win for the annual CES Innovation Awards. "We have developed significant device enhancements in the OrCam MyEye Pro, breaking new ground in personal AI technology," said Tzahi Israel, Orcam’s SVP sales and marketing.

"We are proud that CES has once again recognized our innovative spirit and impact on both the accessibility and health & wellness domains. OrCam has the largest R&D team in the world focused on engineering assistive technology for people who are blind and visually impaired. This enables us to concentrate on developing features that can truly transform a person’s life.

"Integrating the voice-activated, ‘Hey OrCam’ personal assistant and the ‘Smart Reading’ feature, OrCam’s versatile text-to-speech engine, provides unprecedented independence for tens of thousands of users globally. These developments allow people to work more effectively, pursue higher education, and go about their daily lives with confidence empowered by this device,” Israel said.

OrCam MyEye Pro is a wearable assistive technology device for people who are blind, visually impaired or have reading challenges. Lightweight and the size of a finger, OrCam MyEye Pro magnetically mounts on eyeglass frames. Users can independently explore their surroundings by enabling access to any printed text (books, menus, signs), digital screens (computer, smartphone), as well as recognize faces, and identify products/bar codes, money notes and colors—all in real time and offline.

The interactive smart reading feature enables users to tailor their assistive reading experience, and orientation assists with guidance and identification of objects. Newly released “Hey OrCam” enables control of all device features and settings hands-free, using voice commands.

OrCam MyEye was chosen as a 2021 Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) winner, a Time Magazine Best Invention of 2019 and won the prestigious Last Gadget Standing competition's top prize at CES 2018. The handheld OrCam Read device was also named a Time Magazine Best Invention of 2021.
