The Interactive Color Palette Project is a multimedia-oriented approach to teaching visually impaired people, children in particular, about color and color combination theory. For example, when working with paint, mixing equal parts yellow paint and blue paint would yield green paint. The ICP project allows for a colorblind or otherwise visually impaired person to practice combining various primary and secondary colors, thereby gradually training their eyes to differentiate between them. It works by embedding Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tags into a certain color object. That object can then be scanned into the ICP system, where a screen displays what color the scanned object is in both visual and legible formats.
