Color Code and Peekaboom

Filed under: — adam @ 1:05 am

This is a total mindfuck.

It’s a project to color code every word in the english language based on the average color and number of images returned in a search for that word.


Speaking of images, there’s a game called Peekaboom. You play with one other person over the internet, where one person is the peeker and the other is the boomer. The boomer reveals part of an image pertaining to a word that they’re given, and the peeker has to guess what the word is based on successive revelations.

This is an attempt to teach computers to identify images from part of the image.
