Explore the surprising side of color with Color Uncovered, an interactive book that features fascinating illusions, articles, and videos developed by the Exploratorium.

How is Monet like a honeybee? What color is a whisper? Why is it so hard to find your car in a lamp-lit parking lot?

Color Uncovered features a wide spectrum of cool color-related topics to explore. Learn why friends shouldn’t let men buy bananas. Try your own color experiments on the iPad using simple items you have at home: a CD case, a drop of water, and a piece of paper. Discover how the iPad and other devices create color. Find out what causes afterimages—and more.

Color Uncovered was created at the Exploratorium, the mothership for people with major cases of curiosity. Visit us online at www.exploratorium.edu or in person in San Francisco, California.

Surprise find

After stumbling across this site when looking at colours in advertising, found some amazing facts to pass on to students, while learning a lot myself.

Loved this short informative and FUN magazine/book. I learned a lot and I'm 20! I would definitely recommend it for school aged children as well as anyone who loves interesting learning.

Lots of Fun

This is a fascinating app. My only quibble would be in the final chapter where the subtractive primaries are referred to as red, yellow and blue. Of course this should be magenta, yellow and cyan.
It probably wouldn't matter much, except that confusingly, red and blue are previously identified as additive primaries.
