Class Curriculum

Why do I need WiFi for Barcode and Object Recognition?

Cyber Eyez uses services provided by Google for barcode lookup and object identification. Our barcode scanner is powered by Google shopping on the backend so it recognizes over 100 million products right out of the box! But to reach Google, we need WiFi. The Google Online Object Recognition Mode uses the Google Vision API to analyze the picture and identify the objects in it. Google sends the information back to Cyber Eyez and reads it back. As Google’s object recognition gets better, so does Cyber Eyez.

How do I access Barcode mode?

  1. Long press #1 to bring up your menu

  2. Short press #1 until you hear Barcode mode

  3. Short press #3. You will hear, “Changed to Barcode Mode”

Practice rotate and capture in barcode mode

During this time, encourage the students to find objects near them with a barcode on it. Have them hold the object very close to the glasse and slowly pull it away. Cyber Eyez will search the image for barcodes automatically, so no need to take a picture. As soon as the barcode is recognized the result will be displayed on a web browser screen and read back in a few seconds depending on the WiFi network speed. To get back to Cyber Eyez, long press #3.

How do I access Google Online Object Recognition mode?

  1. Long press #1 to bring up the menu

  2. Short press #1 until you hear “Object Recognition”

  3. Object Recognition has a sub-menu, so short press #3 to open the sub-menu.


The first option is Offline Object Recognition mode. Short press #1 to scroll down to Google Online mode or Back to go back to the main menu. Short press #3 to select Google Online mode.

Practice capture in Google Online Object Recognition mode

During this time, encourage the students to look around their environment at different objects, rooms and scenarios and take pictures. Hold objects close, take distance pictures, pictures inside, outside, as many varieties as you can.

Q&A

10 minute questions and answer sessions at the end of the training to answer any of your Cyber Eyez barcode mode and Google online object recognition mode questions.
