ARxVision Bone-Conducting Headset
At the heart of the ARxVision headset and app is a powerful AI system that is able to analyze and understand the environment in real-time. Using a combination of cameras, sensors, and advanced computer vision algorithms, the headset can provide detailed descriptions of surroundings; it can scan and read books, letters, and handwritten notes, as well as street numbers and storefronts. It can help recognize people, search for objects and scan QR-codes.
ARx is a lightweight bone-conduction audio headset equipped with a matchbox-sized camera module that does not cover the wearer’s face. The headset connects directly to the Blindshell Classic 2 accessible cell phone through the USB-C connection for effortless use. In addition, the headset features tactile buttons and a microphone, allowing for a seamless hands-free experience.
Learning to use ARx is easy, thanks to an active community and various interactive onboarding tutorials. In addition, exciting new features and updates will be regularly rolled out to enhance the user experience, such as an artwork descriptor for art exhibits and more.
