Flipping flip. Multicolr is amazing.


So I came across this website, Multicolr, via Trendhunter (I think) Jamie Coomber's Freshenmeup and sweet baby Jesus if it isn't totally mindblowing.

Basically, Multicolr, scrapes creative commons photos from Flickr's most interesting bucket based on visual similarity according to colour.

Multicolr offers you a pallette of 100 colours to choose from and as you select a colour it sucks in photos of the same colour. Even cooler, if you select two colours it scrapes accoridng to both colours (like the above panel – purple and yellow).

I haven't exactly figured out speciifc uses for Multicolr yet, apart from hours of endless fun and finding amazing images for presentation. If anyone has some better ideas please leave a comment.

  1. if it had a checkbox for “content to use commercially” and “content to modify, adapt, or build upon” as on the flickr search, it would be the greatest invention of 2008.

  2. Thanks Simon, it’s pretty cool isn’t it?
    Good to see you last night’s debate, speak soon.

  3. Dude that’s cool. always something new in optical phenomenons to blow our minds. Can’t wait for what the future holds.
