Episode 102: Deep Dive: Colour Tech

Colour plays a huge role in the way we perceive the world, and in more ways than one. We use colour to signal our identity or membership of particular groups, to induce certain feelings or emotions in ourselves, and to tell when certain animals may not be safe to pick up and pet. So in this episode, we’re talking about colour, how we use it, and how it uses us – from Vanta black to Baker-Miller Pink and even how the colour gamut in televisions works.

  • A pink so pink it makes people violent? That’s Baker-Miller Pink, baby.
  • Vanta black isn’t a paint so much as it is a coating of vertically aligned nanotube arrays. Hence the name ‘vanta’. But whatever it is, it sure is very, very black.
