More independence and safety for persons with vision impairments
G-eye is an assistive technology system to support persons with vision impairments or low vision, as well as their institutional carers, family or friends. It is designed to significantly increase independence and safety in daily activities and duties, allowing one to cope autonomously or with remote guidance.
G-eye is designed for people with all kinds of severe sight defects, but also for elders suffering from dementia symptoms, especially Alzheimer. It is for everyone who would find voice support of a carer/close person helpful to deal with all sorts of issues which the impairments make challenging.
Independence and safety for the visually impaired, time-saving and flexibility for their carers.
Computer Vision is a highly effective picture recognition system based on advanced AI, which provides audio description of the surroundings.
Guide Eye allows carers to see remotely what persons with vision impairments encounter via FPV and guide them by speaking.
Best for: blind, visually impaired people, dementia affected elders (e.g. with Alzheimer), and their carers.
Sight loss or severe impairments affect every area of life, making many everyday tasks impossible without additional help. Being a support and carer requires a lot of dedication, but also sensitivity not to harm a person’s already weakened sense of independence.
We developed G-eye to help people with sight impairments to be as independent as possible, while enabling more flexible, remote ways of supporting them by carers.
Computer Vision empowers people with vision impairments to move independently even on unfamiliar territory thanks to audio description of surroundings. When it’s not enough, Guide Eye will connect them with a supporting person, sharing FPV (First Person View) to provide accurate real-time voice guidance.
G-eye is a complete, perfectly-organized system consisting of 3 hi-tech devices and an application designed for persons with vision impairments or low vision.
Modern design, unisex, wireless glasses with built-in, almost invisible camera and WiFi transmission to stream video. The lenses can be exchanged into any corrective lenses for the needs of persons with low vision.
Bone conduction, wireless earphone or earphones with a built-in microphone for audio streaming. Choose one, universal earphone that can be used in both ears, or a headset with two earphones for a better hold. The hook-type construction, outside the auricle, doesn’t cause pain nor interfere with glasses.
Lightweight ring in a minimalist design, with Bluetooth connectivity for remote control of all the system devices and functions.
Mobile and Web applications that connect all of the components together, allowing for audio & video streaming and communication between the supporting and the supported persons.
Guide Eye helps visually impaired people to get remote help while walking in an unknown territory, on a shopping trip, in public transport or offices, and any other situation that requires support. It allows an audio-video connection with a supporting person, which enables FPV (First Person View) and real-time voice guidance. They can see what the visually impaired person cannot see, and talk with them to provide accurate directions, resolve any encountered problems, or simply help with errands – entirely remotely.
*In emergency situations, three clicks work as a PANIC BUTTON - which calls the carer to intervene urgently.
Computer Vision mode is designed to empower persons with vision impairments to be more independent and get around public spaces much more safely than with a white cane or even intelligent sticks. With a single click on the Control Ring, they receive a precise description of the space in front of them via the Mic-Earphone, e.g. the distances to people and objects, texts on outdoor signs or documents, traffic lights information.
I received the product for testing and I immediately noticed how amazing the mechanism of recognizing important objects around is. Now, by going and clicking on the ring, I check what is around me. Incredible! In addition, they can always connect very quickly with my guide who sees what I see. It's very handy in practice. Plus, I look completely ordinary. The camera with glasses is practically invisible. Bravo G-Eye!
I'm very grateful to be able to try the G-EYE system. I can now travel safely on public transport and see who's near me. I can always ask my guide to help me if something happens. This is a great step towards freedom and independence.
It is a real godsend for people with poor vision. It's so easy to use and gives you great freedom of movement. I am very grateful to the developers who created it! Thank you!
This is a very useful device for those who have problems seeing. Thank you for the opportunity!
This is a brilliant solution to my problems! I can finally move around safely, on my own.
The G-Eye has completely changed the way I interact with my environment and people around me.
I use these devices every day, I have even forgotten to take them off when I was sleeping
This is a very thoughtful object. It will be useful for those who have impaired vision or who simply want to see the world around them from a different angle.

For 6 years now, he has been creating products which aim to extend human cognitive abilities by overlaying data and images on visible reality and vice versa: by reproducing reality with the help of sound. Ernest designs Augmented Reality applications and glasses that perform functions in the following areas: navigation, situational awareness, logistics, and security.
The Computer Vision system works properly even with 3G mobile internet. The image recognition function relies on sending individual images to the server at intervals, depending on the user's click on the Control Ring, and so it does not require high network bandwidth.
The Guide Eye mode requires min. 4G mobile internet, due to the need to stream video and audio without delay between the wearer with glasses and the guide, who are video conferencing.
Computer Vision is a system designed to increase independence and safety for persons with vision impairments, in comparison to existing solutions. The recognition efficiency performed by our neural network is measured and confirmed by the tests on the following level:
Smart Glasses are equipped with 2 changeable batteries, and together they can stream video continuously for 120 min. Earphone battery lasts 4 h and the Control Ring - around 1 week. We provide a charging set for every device (USB cables and a charger).
The only action required from a person who is blind is to turn on the devices (via touch buttons) and click the G-eye app icon on their smartphone for it to work autonomously. Then, to start (or finish) a Guide Eye connection with a carer or a Computer Vision guidance, they just need to press touch buttons on the Control Ring. The whole system is designed to minimize required actions from visually impaired persons and is based only on touch.
Both modes of the system do not store any images and sounds. This data is not stored either on the phone or on the server. The only data we can store are:
G-eye set consists of 3 devices and a lifetime license code for the application, so it is free for the product owners.
The users determine by themselves which type of objects are relevant for them in the G-eye application. Once the recognition configuration is set, a photograph is sent to the server when the ring is clicked. The server checks which objects it is supposed to recognize in the photograph, based on the user’s configuration, and runs the appropriate algorithms. As a result of their operation, a voice message about what has been recognized is sent to the user's device.
G-eye greatly extends cognitive capabilities of visually impaired people in comparison to white canes or smart sticks. Moving around unknown territories is easier and safer, but never without any risks.
The whole system is very easy to use and can be turned on only when needed. Even when it’s turned off, wearing Smart Glasses, the Earphone and the Control Ring doesn’t interfere with the person’s mobility or ability to listen to the soundscape. On the other hand, using the system in Computer Vision or Guide Eye modes greatly increases awareness of potential obstacles and problems while walking.
To sum up – G-eye doesn’t bring any new risks or problems for the user, but it significantly increases their safety and independence.
