ColorEye / Color Picker


People who are blind or visually impaired have difficulty sensing colors, but they still have a need for recognizing different colors in daily life. ColorEye transforms different color to different temperature and Braille. Blind people is able to distinguish color of the object pointed at through ColorEye. By using this product, blind people can "feel" the color by sensing the temperature of the thumb area and have a concept of the color through the Braille output. The temperature output is decided by the tone of different colors. Colors of warmer tone correspond to a higher temperature, and those of colder tone lead to a lower temperature.
