This post from New Scientist shows how a Computer paints with 17 million colors. Although that may sound like a lot, the RGB colors make up a triangular subset inside the CIE color space, which shows all the colors that a human eye should be able to see.



The video (warning - there is music in this video) is a soothing diversion for a Thursday, but also a reminder of the interesting and normally creative work that computing can facilitate.
