from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Here are just a few fun links on color perception.

Oh by the way one high tech way to deal with cameras is with infrared light, if you put your remote control in front of any camera you can see the light, meaning if you get a infrared flashlight and put it in front of your face the camera can’t see it 🙂
