We have to be honest and say if you place a motorcycle in your booth, you may possibly get our attention for an interview. Shelly opens this segment by speaking to Dan Parker, OrCam user and self-professed Fastest Blind Man , about his specially designed audio detection system and how it allowed him to drive incredibly fast on the Bonneville Salt Flats circuit. We then switch gears and turn to Bryan Wolynski, Consultant for OrCam, to learn about the new MyEye 2 app for iOS. This recently released free app works with the latest OrCam to allow greater control of settings, Bluetooth audio connection and identify the unit s battery status. We also learn a bit more about the unit s voice control functionality and various pricing for the hardware options available in the OrCam line. Visit the App Store page for the MyEye 2 app and visit the OrCam website to learn more about various available solutions
