Summary: EnChroma glasses allow people who are colorblind to see color. The company, EnChroma is based in Berkeley, California and first developed the glasses in 2010. The goal of the company is to allow people to see the difference between red and green so that they have the option of driving without being a potential hazard. The glasses work for 4 out of every 5 people and cost about $269 to $349. They were recently tested on a 16 year old in Kansas and found to be effective.
Connection: Throughout history technology is continually developing which reflects on our growing economy. This relates to the increase of consumerism in 1950 and how people were buying more material goods, especially on credit due to their prices. As products are put on the market, people will constantly have the urge to buy these products.
Question: What impact do you think EnChroma and/or other technologies have on our economy? How might EnChroma be beneficial/hurtful to our society?
