Have you ever wondered why the word looks so weird? Wait. Weird as in, like, all the time? Of course! We live in a weird world! But light, though! What about weird light? Ahhh, that’s what this video is all about.
This is the strangest vid. description I’ve written in a while. Cool.

Alright, so now here’s the part where some links go:

The all-important second channel discussion;

Technology Connections on Twitter:

The TC Subreddit

Technology Connections 2 (the channel where I sometimes talk about stuff and generally don’t prepare for anything):

You can support this channel on Patreon! It has been amazing what Patreon has done for this channel, but also for me (your dorky host) personally. Through the support of people just like you, Technology Connections has become my job and I am so excited and thankful for it! If you’d like to join the fine folks in a pledge to help the channel stay as weird as it is (and maybe, just maybe, get even weirder!), please check out my Patreon page. Thank you for your consideration!

You explained at the beginning how our eyes see color using the 3 cones, but I think you fell into the trap of thinking that they directly relate to red, green and blue (which they don't as you show, the actual peaks of the cones are in the violet, greenish blue and yellow ranges ). Then you claim that purple is not a real color because its not part of the spectrum. But this is inaccurate. Technically there are no real colors at all, it's all made up by our brain. So it does not matter whether a color is in the spectrum or not, it doesn't make it any more real.

I first realized this while changing the colors of my RGB lightsaber and watching the hue of the colors of things in my room change.

So basically color doesn't exist, it's 100% relative to what wave lengths are hitting it. "Red" is only red when it has red light to reflect.

this is going to be stupid isn't it
"what color is this"
it's orange and yellow
"you're probably thinking it's red!"
goes to a different video

This video is a little old but I've seen quite a few of them recently and as an artist who works with color it pisses me off, red green and blue or rgb is not the basic colors it's fucking red yellow and blue, and cant make yellow with other colors/pigments, yellow and blue make green, green and red dosnt make yellow at all, generally because they are complementary colors they come out as black or a dark almost brown color. If somebody can like educate me on how the fuck green and red makes yellow please do, because they like don't at all

I saw light purple on putt-putt when you said it was looking grey.

now go look at Lab color, and read about the law of simultaneous contrast of colors. RGB is only a teeny tiny fraction of color science. Reading up on all this stuff will finally show you that gradeschool art teacher's primary colors aren't primary colors at all, RGB aren't really primary colors either, and you'll finally understand why those white balance and tint sliders in software like Adobe Lightroom are blue-yellow / green-magenta.

On the face of the rubiks cube turned toward us, I guessed the Blue,
Green, one orange, and at least one of the red squares correct ( though, I cannot remember the reds exactly…).

But I mixed up the middle yellow and the white square, and I thought that the
Bottom left square was orange…

Cool video, it's normally hard to explain how our eyes work, and I feel this will be valuable for anyone starting to learn about colorimetry, digital photography or color theory.
I just want to point out that in the comparison of 19:00, the white balances seem to be different on both scenes (I'm assuming that the white parts of the car should look alike with both light sources). It'd be nice to see what the car would look like if the white point was the same on both images, to have a fair comparison and example of the limitations of the RGB lights (Probably, the point you were trying to make would still be valid, just with a more solid comparison)

Literally taking notes like I'm in a lecture bc I'm a music photographer/videographer, and as soon as he made the red ink disappear I realized this video is a guide for practical effects in lighting

When I was a kid I used to grab a magnifying glass and look the box-TV screen because I could see the little "three colored squares" that way. It was kinda fascinating.

4:07 you guys also only see 1 shade of white and a couple browns on the rubiks cube? This is so trippy.

I don't understand… At 18:55, the car very much looks purple on both sides of the image and in the other images when he says it's grey, it look very purple to me. They car is never Grey in any of the images he shows. at 18:55 the cars look almost exactly the same except that the one on the left looks SLIGHTLY more red/pink than the one on the right side.

Dude I’m tetrachromatic and it’s hell confusing looking at PCs and stuff vs the actual word. Because PCs and stuff use RGB pixels.

I knew that can was yellow from the start, And the car never looked gray to me, only purple. Just one of those times our brains perceive things differently.

So you say you can't reproduce true colors with RGB lights but only tested at equal ratios? what if you were to calculate the ratios based on the cone cells kinda like what the Bayer filter does and tune the brightness of each color accordingly? Wouldn't it work then?

Also I always have this thing in my mind, can we actually produce a display technology with 7sub pixels instead of 3(RGB) to simulate the real world even more closer to it on the screen?

Shaurie Pvs 11/09/2021 - 4:54 Sáng

You've been a life saver for me..I have been beating my head to understand if real world will appear different if illuminated with original yellow and RGB version of yellow, I don't know how exactly to express my question in Google. But I tried and didn't find exact explanation I wanted and I opened this video without any expectations and finally got my answer.. Wow

20:41 – Dangerously-close-to-brown LED. At least when my screen dims because my phone's player controls are on.
