Check this out. The colors of the blazers of German chancellor Angela Merkel. Always the same blazer, always a different color. Isn't that a nice view on Angela Merkel's color preferences?

Did you ever have a nightmare about an asteroid hitting the Earth? Fear not, the bright minds at MIT in Boston came up with a solution for rogue asteroids: launching paintballs at them.
The idea is is that when Asteroids are made brighter, they'll reflect more sun radiation wich will knock them off course. A few million paints balls and a couple of years of radiation will do the job just nicely.
Not sure if it will work, but I just love the idea.

Street Artist Megx has converted a bridge in Wuppertal, Germany into a giant lego structure. The bottom of the bridge looks like the underside of Lego bricks. Isn't it amazing what a few pots of paint can do?

Check this out. A colorscript for an animation. I've never seen anything like this. Amazing. Are there more filmmakers doing this kind of thing? However, even more amazing is the animation itself. Surely one of the most moving short videos I ever saw. Go see it. Now.

Colorjive, your webapp to visualize new paint colors, is going from a yearly fee to a monthly subscription.
Colorjive has recently been updated. For most part, existing features have been improved to make the software even better. However, the most important change is a switch from a yearly license fee to a monthly subscription. If Colorjive is only used for a short while, it will actually be cheaper to use. In fact, it can be used full featured for free for a month. Subscriptions can be terminated immidiately. So if you don't need Colorjive anymore, there no reason to keep paying.
The update reflects a change in the way we market Colorjive. As of now Colorjive will primarily cater professional paint contractors and designers. Experience shows that visualizing new colors in photos is a valuable sales and communication tool for professionals.
Existing users will be able to keep using their current account till the (paid) license runs out. In fact, we'll offer all existing users an unlimited number of uploads from now on, whereas the old 'premium' license only offered 10 uploads. This is our way of saying 'thank you' to our first customers. When you current account runs out, you'll have the choice to sign up for the new monthly subscription.
New and improved:
• $ 12 a month for unlimited use.
• Video tutorials
• New color browser
• Refreshed homepage
• New and improved ways of sharing photos with clients.
• And many more small incremental improvements.
I hope you will all enjoyed a refreshed Colorjive. If you have any comments or suggestions, you're welcome to mail us at email@example.com.

Wow, this is so cool!
Tyree Callahan converted a 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter into a colorwriter. He replaced the ink pads and letter keys by colored paint pads and markers. So that you can 'write' color instead of text. I love the idea...You can go vote for this work of art here.

A bridge that should have been painted blue was accidentally painted yellow. The people of Upton-upon-Severn, a town in England were quite upset to find that the muted Dutchess Blue that was chosen in a six week public consultation had been replaced by a bright yellow.
Never underestimate the public outrage when picking the color wrong.
