Digital Palette (1999) is a hand-held, infrared remote control device
that contains five physical pixels, made of mixing red, green and
blue light-emitting diodes, which can be used to program the color
or color animation for other physical pixels. The color of the palette
pixels can be adjusted using a knob that maps to a value on a wheel
of 256 discrete hues. An artist selects from among the five palette
pixels using direct touch, just like a Nami orb or a Peano cube.
Digital palette can be used to mix static colors, or to program animated
sequences called chromanimation. For a more complete description
of the Digital Palette, please refer to my Master's Thesis. The anatomy
of the Digital Palette is illustrated below.
