Co/ ] Kige 6 By Allison Oiimb of The Press EDINBURG, N.D. -- Brandon Kartes of Edinburg, N.D., will be go- ing back to college this fall and he can't wait to read his textbooks. As a blind man, Brandon has become very good at adapting to his sur- roundings, but he now has been equipped with an advanced tech- nology system called OrCam, which will be adapting his surroundings for him. Brandon said that last spring his Vocational Rehabilitation counselor Frank Strom told him about this new wearable technology that can "see" for him. Frank connected Brandon with a man named Stan Mosser, a low-vi- sion specialist from Minot. He came to Brandon and did an evaluation and some paperwork. Within 10 days, Brandon's reading abilities changed dramatically. He got the Or- Cam glasses in April a month before his spring semester at Lake Region State College in Devils Lake got out for the summer. He said that the Photo: Larry Bid glasses take some getting used to, but with one semester left toward get- ting his Associate of Arts degree in administrative assistant with med- ical option, he really is looking forward to class. Brandon, a 2012 graduate of Valley-Edinburg, said that he hopes to find an internship opportunity locally after graduation this December before jumping into his future career as a medical coder. Brandon said that the technolo- gy came from back up cameras for cars. The company, based out of Jerusalem, was founded in 2010. He- brew University Professor Amnon Shashua founded the driver safety system Mobileye and aoapted it to identify more complex images on a small platform to develop OrCam. The way it works is that Brandon points to the text and the camera in his glasses takes the image and sends it to the small computer Brandon's glasses Cont. page 5 COnSMITIE See page 2 toearn wimhotmrs See page 7 "If you've never experienced the joy of accomplishing more than you can imagine, plant a garden" Robert Brault Words of canning wisdom See page 4 r'son takes hockey skills to NY See page 8
