  1. Recently, I heard about this Israeli startup who develops assistive technology devices for blind. It's a tiny camera that works best when attached to the eyeglasses frame. It reads text from any surface, identify objects, people's faces and money notes and let the user know via built-in speakers discreetly. These glasses for visual disability are revolutionary wearable artificial vision device that helps people who are blind to achieve increased independence.
