Side note for readers seeking cool Science-Geek Status: did you know it is possible to earn a Ph.D in Color Science? R.I.T. (that’s Rochester Institute of Technology, in Rochester, NY, USA) is advancing interdisciplinary scholarship and research in the quantification of our perception of color. Consider this: engineers are developing the visual and photographic technologies for our image-filled future. The University’s website says, “As we begin the 21st century, color science is ubiquitous.”
