    Did not expect this. I remember a comedy movie that had a mad scientist that kept trying to invent a new colour...

    If it's an electron that's absorbed a photon, how would it be different than any other electron not in its the ground state? The Nature publication itself is a cool effect, but I would not call it a new form of light.

    I laughed at the joke because the colours are set and can't be added to since they're measurements on a spectrum. Like inventing a new shade of gray.

    It's just vibrations vibrating. Frequency just goes higher and lower.

    Can you imagine if we had a super transducer so sensitive we could see sounds and hear colors?

    So how long until we can use it with porn?

    If this is what it sounds like, meaning making the nearly impossible to observe into something visible by sight, that would certainly help people who have trouble wrapping their minds around the study of particle physics and why/how we're studying

    Interesting stuff TY for the info Joe.

    That thing has definitely resulted in single electrons binding with something, so it deserves credit too.

    Especially if there's men with the name Electron out there.

    Came across this article recently and thought you might like it. They have discovered a true tetrachromat who can see millions more colors than a regular person.

    According to Daily Mail, an ordinary person can perceive a million different hues of colors. The power to distinguish the hues comes from cells in our eyes called cones. In the average person, there are three types of cones each of which is triggered by different wavelengths of light. Discover Magazine explains that most people have three types of cones, and are said to be "trichromats." Color blind individuals have only two types of cones and they are said to be "dichromats." Almost all animals, including dogs and New World Monkeys are dichromats.

    However, scientists have long believed that there are people with four cones who can see a wider range of colors than most of us can detect. These persons are called "tetrachromats," and can see a hundred million colors. From the perspective of such people, the hues familiar to trichromats fracture further into more subtle shades of differences that have not been given names since most of us are trichromats who cannot see these shades and name them. Jordan and her colleagues have for 20 years searched for people endowed with super color vision, or tetrachromatic vision. According to Discover Magazine, Jordan found a tetrachromat two year ago. Although the person is the first tetrachromat known to science, the researchers believe there are others.

    Will this new light show stains?

    I do not need my apartment lit up like a Jackson Pollock painting.
