A breakthrough in a US laboratory has produced these amazing glasses, which, while stylish, serve to reduce the effects of colorblindness on men with red-green colorblindness.  By enhancing the differences between red and green, colorblind people can enjoy art and color more, although the glasses are far from perfect, so they aren’t yet practical to wear all the time.  This is still an amazing use of technology to prevent a long-standing problem (it’s difficult to make art or equipment that anyone can understand easily without the use of certain colors, and colorblindness is really common), and I’m glad to see some progress being made in this field.

I also kind of want sunglasses with purple lenses because they look super cool.
