You have a color wheel. You are given a specific color. You need to find it on the wheel inside the time limit. Sounds easy, huh? Well give it a try and see for yourselves.
Sure, it starts easy enough, but when it starts asking you about complementary or even analog (!) colors things get tough. And very addictive.

As we have mentioned before, color always raises issues of common understanding between genders. Do women and men see and understand the same colors? Do men like purple? And which color do women dislike?
According to John Hallock’s study, men seem to tolerate more than women achromatic colors, such as black, white and gray, whereas women prefer softer, less bright shades of colors. And I am not even mentioning what may seem purple to a man, could be grape, plum, eggplant etc to a woman.

This is one of the coolest ideas ever: The colour clock is an online clock and a downloadable screen saver (for Mac users only) that represents time as a hexadecimal color.
Let me explain. Do you know your RGBs?
Standing for Red Green Blue, RGB is the color model that combines these three colors to create all the rest. In the web, all colors are represented in hexadecimal RGB codes, ie sets of three numbers (value of red, value of green, value of blue). What else is represented as a set of three numbers? Time (value of hours, value of minutes, value of seconds). What if we combined the two codes? Quite obvious now that I mention it, but quite ingenious for the person who thought of it first. Respect.
This clock is magnificent both conceptually and aesthetically. Perfection.
