This Tech Squib blows your mind while straightening out your eyes.

EnChroma’s new “smart sunglasses” use an advanced optical coating technology that enables each lens to perform specific filtering of the light reaching the eye to correct color misidentification.

The sunglasses work by selectively blocking the wavelengths of light that contribute most to color confusion, thereby improving the signal to noise ratio in the chromatic channels. This makes color vision more reliable and color identification faster while improving the clinically tested performance of patients on color arrangement tests.

When the Enchroma lines ship, their prices range from $399.95 to $599.95. Colorblind sufferers can pre-order now at
