Team Mobile Eye from the Auckland University of Technology were the only Antipodeans to make it all the way to the grand finals. 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.
