Colour Binoculars from Microsoft Garage will help the colour-blind look at the world like everyone else

The Microsoft Garage Lab exists to help turn random projects by Microsoft employees into a product; this helps the employees by letting them be creative at their job while giving Microsoft opportunities to build something extraordinary.

The latest to come out of Microsoft Garage is Colour Binoculars – an app that will give the colour-blind an opportunity to experience the world as everybody else does; for being average, can often be a privilege.

“Anything with red or green messes me up. It’s not so terrible, but it does affect you. For instance, fall leaves don’t look any different for me than other leaves. They look like they always do. It takes a lot of colour out of my life – metaphorically, that is,” says Tom Overton, a Software Engineer at Microsoft, who will be joining Tableau Software in January.
