Find The Color Of anything by overlapping images from Instagram. Search by hashtag, location or username to generate a representative picture. Exclude any images which are not relavant.
The project started out by trying to answer an abstract question of what the color of anything is, may it be a concept, an emotion or a sound. With the hypothesis that random images will average out to be grey, the overlapped image is the answer as objectively determined by the Instagram community. And this answer changes over time.
The Color Of is also a free sharing community where you can explore what other people have created. You can save an image as a wallpaper for your phone, share natively via Twitter, Facebook or Sina Weibo, or even send a postcard via our partner, Sincerely.
What's New in Version 1.01
Resolved latency bugs on viewing your own images
Wish I could Give It Less
The idea is intriguing, but I wish I hadn't payed a dollar for this app. It crashes constantly, and it stopped allowing me to blend images after the fourth image or so that I had blended. It chooses the images for you randomly based on what you type, and essentially, almost none of the images have much of anything to do with the keyword. It's hard to find a keyword that doesn't produce an image that is a brown blob by the end.
I wish the images could at least be chosen off of google images or something prior to being blended, as this app has the right idea, but very poorly executes it. Not what I thought it would be, and I'm very disappointed.
Fun and intriguing, cool to watch the color change as time passes and new shots remake the image. The major downer is the teeny tiny capture - 320x480 is "wallpaper" size when you save. It's a great concept, hope the developer finds a way to deliver.
Everything is pinkish
No matter what you look up - the results are pink.
