A good mutual friend of all team members has been colorblind his whole life, and has never seen the color purple.
What it does
The program takes a live feed from a phone's camera, and adjusts the hues and saturation to allow those who are colorblind to view objects as they truly are.
How we built it
We used Android Studio and OpenCV
Challenges we ran into
OpenCV had a lack of functionality with the android system as there was multiple bugs and system crashes throughout the process. Introduction and self teaching of android studio
Accomplishments that we're proud of
To get started into a project that we seek to continue, as it will provide freedom and introduce never before seen images to 5% of the population.
What we learned
How to use OpenCV, and NOT to use OpenCV with android. Animation for icons, and further development of software that includes the phone camera in moble.
What's next for Vico
To provide a new view of life for colorblind individuals through an accessible apps, and a self built (or pay $3) for a VR google cardboard headset.
