Aipoly, a smartphone app, helps visually impaired persons identify what’s around them.

Created in 2015, the app uses artificial intelligence to scan an item’s shape and patterns – after which it relays the information to the user.

It recognises 1,000 everyday things without an internet connection, including objects, animals and colours.

The app which won the CES2017 Best Innovation Award was created by two entrepreneurs, Alberto Rizzoli and Simon Edwardsson.

“It’s like I’m seeing it, but I’m not, It’s seeing for me,” a visual impaired user said.
