Tri-Color: Exploration of Mixing Colors

Welcome to an Exploration of Colors!

Explore how any color can be created by adjusting the intensities of Red, Green, and Blue, and then showing them together on your screen.

To create colors, use the buttons to increase or decrease the values. (Hint: you may hold the button to rapidly change the value!)

Intensities range from 0 to 100%.

Exercise: Try to make the color "pink". Then, can you make it "brighter"?
