Vuzix® Corporation recently announced its VIP partner Cyber Timez has received a purchase authorization in partnership with the Wounded Warrior Program to deliver Cyber Eyez — a smart glasses-based visual aid software — to assist American veterans with low vision and blindness.
The project is reportedly expected to span four to five years and is targeted towards 175,000 American veterans and wounded warriors with low vision and blindness. All 42 Wounded Warrior Battalions and 40 Army Medical Centers will reportedly begin introducing Cyber Eyez on the Vuzix M300 to American veterans and their families, as well offering assessment, training and technical support services.
Through the use of a high definition camera and optical character recognition engine, Cyber Eyez provides text recognition to the user in real-time. Additionally, Cyber Eyez on the Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses reportedly allows those with low vision and blindness to magnify anything in their environment up to 15 times, read any text in over 100 languages, identify over 16 billion objects, recognize over a thousand colors, scan barcodes to identify products and even detect moods on faces.
