iPhone aids the Color Blind

by Staff

RetinaMedia Atelier has created one of the more innovative new apps for the iPhone : Retina color blindness helper. Designed specifically to take advantage of the iPhone's unique capabilities and peerless interface, Retina helps color-blind users recognize colors by using the device's camera preview. Perfect for just about any situation imaginable, Retina serves to assist the color-blind to be more self-sufficient.

helping the color blind see colors7 to 10 percent of the male population suffer from Protanopia (Daltonism) resulting from insensitivity to red light, causing confusion of greens, reds, and yellows. This condition is hereditary and the most common form of color blindness. Retina provides a simple method to differentiate colors in a fast, efficient way. Unlike alternative solutions, there is no need to take a picture first to figure out a color. Simply point the camera preview on any object to clearly discern proper colors.

Feature Highlights:
* Easy to use
* Directly indicate proper colors via the iPhone's camera preview

Stefan Fuerst, founder of Media Atelier comments:
