Occasionally I have ideas about things that require some research and development. Until now, I have not "published" them, partly because of lack of opportunity. I am now starting this page to "publish" some of them.

Perhaps some of the topics would be useful as PhD thesis material? If somebody gets rich from one of these, perhaps they'd throw some portion of their riches my way?

Normalized Computer Color Spaces

I need to do a little more research to confirm what I say here, but, if you look at at least some of the "color spaces" (exemplified by color choosers), you will find that the colors are not spread evenly across the (typical human) visible "spectrum". (IIRC, I've noticed this on 16 and 24 bit color "depths".)

Maybe there is a need for a "normalized" color space (16 or 24 bit or both, and others) that appears to be spread more evenly across the visible spectrum. (And, I think if that occurred, the result / goal would be an equal change in perceived color for a specific numeric change in the R, G, and B values. (So, although #ffffff would still be white, and #000000 would still be black, other color numbers would be different than their current values in order to acheve the "normalized" result of an equal change in perceived color for a given numeric change in the R, G, or B values.) The PhD thesis result could be one or more such nomalized color schemes.

There are other things to consider. Certainly lots of research and knowledge on colors and human sensitivity exists. Things like the pantene (??) color scale and similar schemes are related. There is also a scheme (is that the pantene thing) to do the things necessary so that colors on computer monitors are portrayed the same way they would be in print.


I had another one this morning — I hate having a headache like this.
