Simulated Colorblindness

About 8% of all men suffer from color blindness to some extent, compared to 0.5% of all women (Dogs are not colorblind). This display simulates several different types of color vision deficiencies using UV color
changing beads. Under incandescent light all the beads are the same color (white), when exposed to light with a strong UV component (such as sunlight) the color of the beads will differentiate themselves into a recognizable pattern. These patterns are modeled after the Ishihara color blindness test.


Above are the UV beads in their unexcited state under normal incandescent light. The camera is able to see more differentiation between the different beads than the naked eye.


When the beads are exposed to UV light they change from white to a specific color.

Below are some of the test pieces I made as a proof of concept
