How does OrCam MyMe work?
OrCam MyMe easily clips onto your clothing and will identify faces throughout your day, synchronizing them with the companion app. Faces that you have saved to the app will appear via a push notification to your smartphone or smartwatch when the device recognizes them in real time.
Faces need to be “learned” by OrCam MyMe. You can manually add people to your database. OrCam MyMe will not identify people it does not “know”.
When MyMe “meets” a new person, you can find them in the app and “teach” MyMe the new face. The next time you come across that person, MyMe will notify you via the App of who it is, when you last met, for how long, and any other relevant details. It will identify any faces 3-10 feet away, when in a conversation.
