INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCES

A photo of a child in a ball pit - on the left is normal vision with multiple colors and on the right is the color blind view. The EnChroma Color for the Color Blind logo is across the bottom.

EnChroma

EnChroma glasses are engineered with special optical filters that help the red-green color blind experience an expanded range of colors more vibrantly and distinctly to make schoolwork that involves color, art, nature and other experiences more ‘color accessible.’ Experience EnChroma's color blind, low vision, and color enhancing glasses.

Are you color blind? Sign up today to be a part of the color experience at Shine Music Festival.

Colorimetry logo on a multicolored background

Colorimetry

Colorimetry was launched in February of 2019 as a result of the founders’ discovery of the power of light combined with art. The company’s original LED handheld device--The Colorizer-- was born out of the realization that one could bring art to life with the simple press of a button, The Colorizer makes art appear to move, shift, and change color. In each of its settings lies the possibility of bringing out aspects of the artwork that would otherwise never be experienced.
