Is a colour temp change on our android display possible like with Redshift and F.Lux?
Came across F.Lux a while back and after installing it on my laptop tonight I remembered how huge a difference it makes to your eyes and sleep after you adjust to it.
F.Lux or Redshift (Linux's variant) reduces the colour temperature of screens to reduce the blue level, as when your eyes pick up blue light from any source, your body reduces sleep hormones (melatonin) and keeps you going as it believe's it's still daytime. Ever wake up throughout the night or wake up feeling groggy everyday? This might be why.
Here's a bit from the F.lux website:
"F.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer's display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.
It's even possible that you're staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better."
So what I'd like to know is if an app like this is possible on Android?
Something along similar lines was developed here: http://jsharkey.org/blog/2010/07/01/...un-and-profit/
But this sets the screen to only use one colour to display everything, be it red, blue, green, etc? but this effect is at the extreme end of the spectrum. If our phones could be tweaked to about 3400k when needed this could end up being a really useful app for all of us who stick our faces in front of our phones at night!
