Windows May Soon Include Blue Light Reduction

It appears Microsoft may be adding native blue light reduction (BLR) to a future Windows 10 release. Some of you are saying, “what the heck is BLR?” Essentially, its a feature that changes the light emissions from your computing device in a dark environment. Huh? Let’s put it this way… have you ever seen someone using a laptop or tablet in a dark room? The light from the screen makes their face look blue, as shown above. Smartphones, computer screens, and even TVs exhibit this behavior. BLR helps to filter this light making it a more natural color. Supposedly, this reduces eye strain and other side effects of prolonged screen viewing.
