For most people afflicted with it, colourblindness is a mundane reality of life: it’s not the end of the world, but you do wonder how things might look if you didn’t have it (yours truly does). The Eye2TV HDMI dongle plugs into any television and adjusts the colors on the fly to compensate for what colour-blind people don’t see. It sits between your source and your TV, altering the signal in real time. There are different levels of correction to accommodate the varying types of colourblindness, and other viewers with normal vision will reportedly not see that much of a difference.
The Eye2TV Adapter uses Eyeteq, “which is a new mathematical image processing technology based on world-leading research at the University of East Anglia, and has been transformed from the lab to real product by technology company Spectral Edge Ltd.” We will include a link at the bottom where you can download an app to test what the technology does. You’ll be able to upload pics and have them corrected, to determine if this is something you want to get. And if it is, the Eye2TV Adapter will set you back Â£50, or about $74, on their Kickstarter campaign. It’s far from being funded though, so if this is something you care about, spread the word.
