As someone who is colorblind, how do I know I can trust someone when they tell me what I'm seeing now is red when my concept of red itself is impaired by a lifelong inability to properly see it? If you say, "now when you put these on and you see brick red you'll really see brick red." You could totally be screwing with me.
Actually, this looks awesome. And I really want to try these out just for the experience of being able to see the differences between certain colors. Like he said in the article about where has purple been all his life...purple is the color I've always wanted to see because I simply don't get it. Plus, with those glasses, I could tell why the hell everyone gets so damn excited about all the red and green at Christmas. The festiveness of the color combination has been very confusing for my poor cone-disabled eyes.
That comparison chart is amazing. I need to get one of those. Actually, I wish I had one when I was a kid so that other kids would have stopped holding up crayons saying, "What color is this?" Yes, I can see yellow. No I can't see red, but I can still read it when you hold it up and the damn color is printed on the side. I'm color blind, not stupid.
