ColoRotate offers 3D color exploration, Photoshop integation
Offering sort of “Kuler on steroids,” the new ColorRotate iPad app enables interesting ways to create & share color palettes. It offers “powerful tools for extracting from images, adjusting with blends, making precise edits, or generating fresh ideas with randomized palettes.”
Perhaps best of all, ColoRotate can work seamlessly with Adobe Photoshop CS5 or CS6. The app synchronizes in real-time with Photoshop so when you make changes to the Photoshop foreground and background colors, those changes are simultaneously reflected in the app. The app can also load the image from the current Photoshop window and add the current palette to Photoshop’s Swatches panel.
The VW BBQ Bus
The Volkswagen BBQ-VAN is a full-scale model of a Volkswagen Transporter T1 that’s a specially-built barbecue pit. It has a grill under its roof and fits 10 burgers, and also has battery-powered headlights.
Sadly it’s a one-off created for a contest, so it won’t be driving around my back yard any time soon.
