As its name implies, 'Mobile Eye' enables visually impaired people to "see" via their mobile phones. The app is able to verbally describe an individual’s surroundings, including specific object colours and even written text.
During a demo, the app correctly read our name tag aloud and was able to identify a large spectrum of different colours.
