We’re working on a long list for the Em4 model that now includes problems of color and chroma (relative brightness). Another branch of science to explore. Here’s a possible media combination, and the technology involves color and human perception. We want...

Beautiful spring Sunday, with two kinds of worms.

I went into work early and finished testing our valve and metering array for the Em4. It’s working, and at least conceptually finished. We may have figured out our media color scheme as well, we’ll see. Here’s the ugliest combination for fun. Spring...
