I doubt extra colors would do a person much good. Your brain wouldn't know how to handle it and you couldn't describe normal colors anymore... And you couldn't sleep because of all that infrared from your eyelids. Maybe it would work with babies growing up with it. And think of the goths wearing all kinds of colorful black! Cop: "Sir, you ignored an octarine traffic light. I'll have to give you a fine for that."

Make it myself? But I'm a physical organic chemist!
