    I’ve reached semantic satiation on the word ‘pink’, it no longer sounds like a real word

    It’s [not the first time](https://youtu.be/TkZFuKHXa7w?t=41) someone has discovered the ‘purest’ version of a colour…

    that haircut is so bad the camera can’t capture it, youtube can’t store it, and my screen can’t display it

    As a programmer, the talk about how color is encoded bothered me. He was right that it is encoded as numbers. But the brightness of the sun isn’t “beyond” 255.

    255 is like saying 100% bright. The issue isn’t with the encoding in that case, it’s with the fact that your screen isn’t as bright as the sun. Similarly, the encoding can capture the correct color of the sun, but most cameras cannot.

    The encoding does have limitations, but the examples he gave are limitations with the cameras and monitors, not the encoding.

    I didn’t see a change…

    I’m moderately red/green color blind. Was it a massive difference?

    “Loveliest blue”? How do you measure how “lovely” a color is? This douche sounds like a character from Portlandia.

    Question: Does Tom Scott annoy anyone else as much as he annoys me?

    I have no problem with him at all, but he just rubs me the wrong way for some unknown reason.

    “I’ve been painting since I was five years old and I’ve seen a lot of pink…” Heh.

    “…and thousands and thousands of people have used the pink…” Pffft.

    “…and nobody’s said they’ve seen a pinker pink.” I’m done.

    Pink is starting to not sound like a word because they’re saying it so much.

  33. Applay

    July 18, 2017 at 10:21 pm

    Now I want to see the color with my own very eyes. I’m not ordering that, though, ’cause I’m the poorest poor.

    July 18, 2017 at 10:21 pm

    Youtube and video may not be able to show it, but his use of a shitty “1080p” camera isn’t helping. Artifacts everywhere and his shirt looks gritty. Not a very good representation.

    Where on the color spectrum would it go?

  43. Domjohn

    July 18, 2017 at 10:21 pm

    He didn’t create the “est” anything, don’t we know who already created the blackest black, some sort of carbon filament? Like we can measure these things right? This isn’t claiming you have the “world’s best cup of coffee” these are measurable claims right?

    Edit: found a link http://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/theres-new-worlds-blackest-black-180962748/

    I also don’t believe the people creating the most vivid colors will be artists, clearly it’s science and the private sector for profit, not a painter.

    Remember hearing about this on No Such Thing as a Fish… or possible another podcast and thinking I should see it. Also included the bit about the rights to use the blackest black and the fact they can’t be used together.

    It really is satisfying to paint with such a pure colour.

    You know, it is really interesting to me as a colorblind person, that those colors are very identifiable. I guess the colors are so intense, that even colorblind persons can pick out enough of the color to properly categorize them as red, green, blue etc

  51. iwonderhowlonguserna

    July 18, 2017 at 10:21 pm

    This reminds me of how much I hate gaming monitor commercials trying to show the difference of a high-end monitor and a standard one. It’s all just marketing tricks because people watch the ad on bad monitors so they just make the better monitor’s image look brighter and sharper etc.

    I love hearing more about the hate Anish Kapoor and this guy have for each other. It’s the nerdiest feud, and I love it.

  56. USeaMoose

    July 18, 2017 at 10:21 pm

    I had a really hard time gauging the degree of seriousness here.

    My first assumption was that the site was fake, the product was fake, the two actors were the same person (one with a wig), and Anish Kapoor was a made up name. But I see now that the product is real (though the marking claims are clearly tongue in cheek), the site is real, Anish is a real artist who got exclusive rights to… a shade of black stuff. And the Instagram photo they could not show actually exists.

    Have I just become too jaded? Everything about that video made me think it was a parody. Suggesting you needed something over 100% brightness to display their pink, saying they had to stay up for 4 weeks making pink. The feud they got into with that artist. I guess I was thrown off by them injecting humor into the whole situation (like the disclaimer to bar Anish from the product). But still… I don’t know what’s real anymore.

  57. _Sasquat_

    July 18, 2017 at 10:21 pm

    So at 1:47 he starts talking about why a computer screen can’t display that color, and the numbers he mentions indicate he’s talking about 8-bit screens. So what do you need to see this color, 10-bit, 12-bit?
