29th October: International Cyrus The Great Day

Happy International Cyrus The Great (600-530 BC) Day.

 

He practised tolerance of religion for all faiths within the Persian Empire, wrote the first international charter of human rights and freed the Jewish people to return to their homeland.

I hope world leaders of the current era understand and recognise the value of respecting their own people, and respecting others from around the world.

OrCam MyEye Headset Review – Demonstration & analysis of the My Eye wearable OCR vision aid glasses

OrCam’s MyEye is an Optical Character Recognition wearable device which takes the picture of text and converts it into sound. It also recognizes faces and products and currently retails for 3500 dollars in America and Canada, and 2200 pounds in the UK.

It has two main parts: the combined camera-speaker unit and the computer unit which contains a rechargeable battery. In this video, the awesome Tony explains the advantages that he has already experienced.

This kind of device can have a massive impact on the life of the around 300 million people in the world who are vision impaired. I hope it becomes more mainstream and affordable.

This video will never be monetised.
