Color For The Color Blind

quote [ The revolutionary EnChroma Cx Lens fundamentally boosts color vision, bringing color to the color blind. What are the implications? It ranges from overcoming activity, task and learning obstacles, to getting access to new and breathtaking sensory experiences. ]

No more blowing through flashing yellow lights for me!

I am red/green colorblind myself and have a set of isochromatic slides that date back to the 50's. They contain a pair of glasses like the old 3D glasses that literally do this same exact thing. My dentist uses a piece of tinted glass that does something similar and makes reds and greens stand out.

They may have narrowed down the exact properties to make it better, but this tech is *at least* 60 years old.

*edit* Yeah, they've just narrowed down the specific wavelengths that *pop*. It's not exactly snake oil here, but it ain't exactly new either. A refinement at best.
