For individuals suffering from color blindness, the new DanKam smartphone application for iPhone and Android costing just $2.99 can help them see “true” colors as everyone else sees them.

As explained by the app developer, Internet security specialist Dan Kaminsky, “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 color-blind can see.” Kaminsky added that the app can be configured to fit the condition of individual users since not everyone who is color-blind sees things the same.
