The Digital Palette is a handheld device for the remote control of digital light. It enables the user to mix colors of light, create sequences of colored light, and specify the color of a physical pixel. The Digital Palette can set the color of any physical pixel that is programmed to understand our syntax, analogous to the use of a standard remote control to program a television or VCR.

In the illustration (left), a user selects the color red and touches Peano to introduce the color.

Imagine using the Digital Palette to change the color of Christmas tree lights, decorate digital jewelry, or animate an electronic lava lamp.
