Microsoft is now trying to help out colorblind people to be able to see what they otherwise cannot. Yes- the Windows developer firm has created a new app called Color Binoculars for the people who cannot distinguish between colors the way others can do. The move by Microsoft is purely dedicated to making the life for colorblind people a lot brighter and vibrant.
The app uses the mobile phone’s camera to adjust colors properly so that the frame could appear clearer to a colorblind person. A very cool thing about this creation is that the app has been created by an engineer at Microsoft who himself is colorblind. However this app is currently available for iOS users only and its Android version is expected to be out soon.
Microsoft said that it is a fairly simple app and can be easily used by colorblind people. There are three modes in the app to counter three major types of colorblindness namely red/green, blue/yellow and green/red. The app also has an option to disable color correction in order to view the difference and contrast between the pictures. This would give the person an idea about how a non-colorblind and a colorblind will view the picture.
