WINCHESTER, VA, August 14, 2017 — Cyber Timez, Inc., a world leader in augmented reality applications for smart glasses and VIP Partner with Vuzix, has entered into a partnership with Ability One vendors, Wounded Warrior Program and Minton-Jones Company and received authorization to distribute their Cyber Eyez smart glasses application to American veterans with low vision and blindness in an effort to help them be more independent and re-enter the workforce.

 

“We are very excited to help our nation’s greatest warriors impacted by low vision and blindness to maintain and regain their independence,” commented Sean Tibbetts, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Cyber Timez. “With Cyber Eyez and the Vuzix M300 smart glasses we are enhancing our nation’s veterans’ and wounded warriors’ lives and enabling them to resume their daily tasks, find jobs and regain their independence.”

 

Cyber Eyez leverages advanced AI engines on Vuzix smart glasses to empower users with low vision and blindness to be more independent in a sighted world. Users can experience their world and get things done efficiently and independently. By using a high definition camera and an optical character recognition engine, Cyber Eyez provides highly accurate text recognition. Wearers can have virtually any text or signage read to them in real time with no internet connection while still maintaining privacy. Cyber Eyez on the Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses enables many American veterans 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.

 

“This is a tremendous opportunity for Vuzix to leverage our technology to help American veterans, including our nation’s veterans and wounded warriors impacted by low vision and blindness improve their overall quality of life,” said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix.
