Kaminsky is a security researcher known for discovering fundamental flaws in the Internet’s design. Currently, he is working on a side project, DanKam inspired by a colorblind friend. This experimental app project targets individuals who are anomalous trichomats, meaning reds and greens shift towards each other in the color spectrum. Kaminsky envisions an app that offers numerous customizable settings for colorblind individuals to experience the same. This application is available in the App Store to be used by iPhones and iPod Touches. To read more about Kaminsky’s DanKam experiment.
