New DamKam Android and iPhone app helps the Colorblind

Statistics reveals that close to 1 percent of the population is colorblind. This means that that they don’t entirely see colors that most see. However, this is can change with a new Smartphone application called DanKam. The DanKam app helps colorblind people use the Android just as effectively as anyone else.

Dan Kaminsky developer told CNET in an interview with CNET said that

DanKam takes the stream of data coming in through the phone’s camera and changes the colors slightly so they fall within the range that people who are colorblind see’. He also added that ‘You can tweak it to fit your needs. There is a spectrum and not everyone who is colorblind sees things the same

Kaminsky, who is evidently fascinated by colorblindness and its theory, said

Most people are not dichromatic. They are anomalous trichromats, meaning their green sensor is a little shifted towards red

CNET has tested the application and its copy editor Sparkman, said

It would be useful for dressing for a job interview,

is the most practical application, he added

The application seems to working well on different lights on electronic gadget, like LED. It can be useful to play games that have been based on color identification. This app is for iPhone and Android for as less as US$2.99.

  13. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
