This is a prototype device idea from designer Lifeng Yu, that promises to improve the lives of people with color blindness by empowering them.
Here’s what one person at Yanko Design, an excellent design blog, tells Medgadget:
As we know, blind … can’t see any thing including colors . Though they can feel the shape and material of the object by their fingers, they still can’t feel the color of it by this way. But can’t see the colors doesn’t mean that they don’t need to distinguish them. There are many problems about colors in their daily lives. For example, their clothings always dye each other when they wash them together by washer. Also, blind people like to have beautiful shapes just like common people, but they are always vexed at dressing because of the problem of color assortment. So, the Bright-F is designed to solve these problems. It can help the blind man to distinguish the colors with a in-build color identification system and then tell them through a audio set. Bright-F has a program of practical teaching about colors which can help the blind to know the action of the colors, such as the way of composing garments of different colors, how to avoid clothing dyeing, and how the colors influent people’s motions. Flashlight can bring bright to most people in the dark except the blind people. However, the shape of Bright-F, which comes from the flashlight, can bring the brightness in colors to the blind .By touching the flashlight-like outside of this design, the blind people can easily associate the function of it. This can bring them more confidence about life.
