The ADAPTER that improves television for the COLOR blind: £50 Eye2TV uses algorithm to enhance PICTURES READ
An adapter that allows color blind people to enjoy TV without a loss of detail is seeking funding on Kickstarter. Called Eye2TV, it adjusts colors in the image so that shows look 'normal', even if features colors such as red and green that would otherwise not be visible.
And the subtle effect is such that someone with normal vision will barely notice any change in the picture, so people can easily watch TV together.
For the effects work, they created a small gadget that plugs into the HDMI port of a TV or monitor.
You then plug another device into the adapter and, using an app or remote, adjust the color settings on whatever you are watching. It works with any HD-ready screen, such as a TV or a computer monitor. It charges using a USB cable, which can be plugged into a spare USB port or into a plug. And the goal is to enable people of all sight levels to enjoy shows. At the moment, more than 90% of forms of color blindness are supported.
Currently over 285 million people have some sort of vision problem, Scientist say by 2020 at least 1.3 Billion people will have some sort of vision problem. The global initiative now is to make more things accessible for people who can reverse hand of time on vision & use more preventive measure to help people no loose there vision.
