Year of publication:
CBU number:
A simple optical method is described for mixing coloured light. It allows an observer intuitive and approximately independent control of hue and saturation at constant brightness, facilitating colour mixing by unpracticed observers. It enables children to select a specific colour that reduces perceptual distortion of text.
