New Product Alert: Be My Eyes for Android


Be My Eyes is a charity and giving app that lends eyes to the blind. The Android app connects blind and visually impaired people with sighted helpers from around the world via live video connection. The sighted volunteer will explain things that the visually impaired user points his or her camera at. The volunteers are called on-demand, and Be My Eyes’ technology matches users based on language and time zone. Most calls are answered within 45 seconds, and users can request assistance in their native languages 24 hours a day.

Be My Eyes for Android was developed by iOS designer and developer Tobias Due Munk, Michael Flarup, and Willi Wu.
