Security researcher, master hacker, and one of the “Seven Horsemen of the Web Apocalypse“, Dan Kaminsky, just announced his latest project, DanKam, an iPhone app that aids the color blind in distinguishing certain colors through the use of augmented reality. Kaminsky got the idea after seeing the latest Star Trek movie with a friend. After the movie his friend had mentioned that he was color blind. Dan had asked him what he thought of the green girl in the film and his friend replied “There was a green girl? I thought she was just tan!” This led Dan, who’s also a bit of a graphics nerd, to develop this true reality augmenting app that has the potential to aid people with color blindness experience the world around them in a new and exciting way.
