Developed in Israel, the OrCam can recognise nearby objects, text, people and hand gestures, and deliver audio information to the wearer through bone conduction (a technology also used in train window advertising).
All that is needed is to simply reach out with a finger, and place it on top an item or text.
For long-term wearers, the camera can also learn about people and regularly used items, meaning faster recognition for the familiar.
Outdoors, the camera can determine if a pedestrian light is red or green, as well as if oncoming traffic is a risk.
According to their website, the September shipment has already sold out, but OrCam is looking to sell another 500 by the end of this year.
