ColorADD transforms colour to a graphic code that indicates the colours on textiles, medicines, educational games, coatings, paint material etc. Based on three primary colours, the symbols are related to each other and the entire colour pallet graphically identified (for example, yellow and blue make green; the symbols of the graphic code are similarly combined).
Colourblindness, or colour vision deficiency, affects approximately 10% of men and 1 in 200 women - approximately 350 million people around the world. There are different forms of colour blindness, including the total inability to perceive colours.
