Can your iPhone correct your color blindness?
"I used it today in the real world. It was amazing! I was at Target with my girlfriend and saw a blue plaid shirt that I liked. She asked me what color it was so I pulled up DanKam and said "purple." I actually could see the real color, through my iPhone! Thanks so much!"
"I am literally, almost in tears writing this, I CAN FRICKIN’ SEE PROPER COLORS!!!!"
"Thank you so much for this app. It’s like an early Christmas present! I, too, am a color blind Designer/Webmaster type with long-ago-dashed pilot dreams. I saw the story on Boing Boing, and immediately
downloaded the app. My rods and cones are high-fiving each other. I ran into the other room to show a fellow designer, who just happened to be wearing the same “I heart Color” t-shirt that you wore for the Forbes photo. How coincidental was that? Anyway, THANKS for the vision! Major kudos to you…"
"@waxpancake: Dan Kaminsky made an augmented-reality iPhone app for the
colorblind. And it *works*. http://bit.ly/gOJAn0"
Apparently so :)
DanKam is a iPhone app that displays video from the camera (among other sources), remixed so that it's a lot easier for the color blind to see colors, and the differences between colors, more accurately.
