DanKam - Augmenting colour blindness

The Augmented Reality smartphone app DanKam might be a useful tool for people who suffer from red-green colour blindness. Internet security expert Dan Kaminsky has developed the AR smartphone app DanKam, for iPhone and Android, which can ‘correct’ the most common kind of colour blindness.

By simply pointing your smartphone’s camera towards an item of clothing for instance, and the app displays the colour in such a way that those who suffer from colour blindness can see it. In a short interview posted on Kaminsky’s website, some more information about the app is given and the idea behind it is explained.
