“iVisit, a company out of Santa Monica, California that specializes in video teleconferencing applications, has teamed up with the National Institutes of Health to turn a mobile phone’s camera into an eye for the blind. Using advanced image recognition software to identify what is in front of the phone, the system reads off what it is seeing.” – Michael, Medgadget

What a neat application. I wonder what kind of technology and platform it’s based on. From the youtube video, it appears to be using an HTC smartphone probably running Windows mobile.
