Have you ever wondered what it is like to have Impaired Colour Vision (ICV - commonly called colour blindness)? In this interactive exhibit, you will experience seeing through ICV eyes and learn more about this often misunderstood condition.

Dr David Flatla is a Lecturer and Dundee Fellow within Computing at the University of Dundee. David leads the DAPRlab (Digitally-Augmented Perception Research lab) research group that combines sensors and wearable devices to enhance the day-to-day abilities of seeing and hearing for everyone - both people with impairments as well as those with typical abilities.

Current DAPRlab projects include improving the visibility of mobile screen content in bright light and developing visualizations to improve speech (lip) reading.

David's personal research focusses on helping people with impaired colour vision. Within Computing at the University of Dundee, David co-teaches Human Computer Interaction and teaches 'Exploring Colour Vision Deficiency’, a component of the Research Frontiers module.
