The Horus is a wearable device developed to assist blind and visually impaired individuals during their entire day.The device observes, understands, and describes the environment to the user, providing useful information in a discreet way and with the right timing. Horus can help the user by reading texts, recognizing objects, faces and also pedestrian crossings and obstacles. Using bone conduction, the hearing of the user is in no way affected (as opposed to using earphones) and it will be possible to hear the device even in noisy situations.

The Horus is composed of two parts: the first part is a standalone part similar to a pair of sports headphones. The second is a pocket-sized box which the user can wear or carry in a bag. This is also where the battery and the processor are located. The user will interact with Horus in several ways: with buttons, voice interaction, or by performing simple actions. This allows the device to adapt to different situations of the everyday life and to understand, thanks to its sensors, what is happening around the person, so that it can act accordingly.
