Samsung Develops LCD for Color-Blind

Samsung Electronics has announced that they are developing LCD monitors for prople with dyschromatopsia (color-blindness for the lay-folk). The color correction technology will allow users to control red, green and blue output at 10 levels so that people can set the monitor to adjust the contrast of the colors giving them the most difficulty. Ha Yun-ho, executive directory of Samsung Electronics and a man who seems to not fully understand the concept of colorblindness tells us that the object of the new Magic Vision monitors was "to offer everyone an opportunity to watch images in vivid colors." Or, at the very least, more vibrant shades of brown and green.
