A longer-term idea is to make small photosensor. I’ve done a little python script and app to display data: a heatmap graph. What i learned so far I […]

Mechanical RGB colour mixing

This my little experiment to mix RGB colours mechanically. James Clerk Maxwell developed a tool to trick the human brain. By spinning the right amounts of red, green and blue on a wheel, it seems like the colours are melting together to white. With this experiment he could prove that what we perceive as white […]
