Can You Actually See 50 Different Shades of Grey?
February 25, 2017 - Fifty Shades of Grey
The film instrumentation of Fifty Shades Darker is scheduled to strike theaters on Feb. 10, stability a obscene storyline of a bestselling novel Fifty Shades of Grey series. Which got us wondering: Is it indeed probable for a chairman to heed that many shades of such a neutral color?
There is no decisive answer. The systematic novel reports a far-reaching operation of values for how many shades humans can see, while computers can display adult to 256, depending on a program. So to try this question, TIME put together a elementary ask to exam how many shades of gray–yes, that’s a American spelling–you can distinguish. You’ll be presented with 8 slides of 9 shades each, some of that are opposite from a credentials tone and some that are not. Note that not each slip has a same series of swap shades.
It should be remarkable that this ask is not scientific. Most research-backed tone tests are designed to exam for forms of tone blindness and relief themselves of colors other than gray.
