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.

Fascinating, educational and very interactive. I really enjoyed this app and learnt a lot of interesting and amazing facts. If you enjoy hands on experiments with colours and optical illusions you'll love this. The last page where you look at a negative then a black & white and your eyes fill in the colours probably had the most 'wow, how did that happen' factor of all the experiments. I honestly can't rate this highly enough.

Fantastic app.

I'm always interested in learning new interesting things, so naturally, I was excited to read this little interactive book. The imagery is wonderful, and the interactive nature of the app helps me - a kinaesthetic learner - to keep interest, and learn s much as possible!
With a simple register, and a friendly tone, this app was perfect for me. Just wish it would go on longer!(:

As an introduction to how we perceive colour, this is great. The functionality of the iPad is exploited well and lessons we may have seen before are presented more slickly than I've ever seen. Well played. Recommended for painters, especially. The truth is not out there. It's in you, it appears.
