Bold Colors

Imagine yourself suspended ten feet in the air, fingers losing grip, and bracing for your inevitable fall, all because you can’t tell the difference between two rocks. At rock climbing gyms, boulders are color-coded to represent the level of difficulty which is a disadvantage for colorblind individuals. Our team saw a need to help this user group participate in this sport with relative ease. Bold Colors is a free mobile web application that uses object recognition and color detection to help users autonomously see their routes before they scale the wall.
