Additive Color Vision Simulation

The University of Colorado at Boulder had developed a number of interactive simulations. Unfortunately, all but one are geared more towards science and math classes rather than psychology. The one psychological simulation involves color vision which does a fantastic job of demonstrating the trichromatic color theory as well as the concepts of additive color.

Users can adjust the intensity of red, green and blue colored lights to see the effects on the subjects vision.

All of the simulations require the use Java 1.5 which can be downloaded for free from a link on site. To find the vision color simulation, simply go to
