  • And Oldsmobile made the first blue car. That doesn’t mean they get to trademark blue cars.

    I saw this Fluke image on their Facebook page:


    and just happen to have a screen color sampler in my toolbar. At the brightest spot on the trim, this meter is (216,121,1) - decidedly orange. The darker spots are more orange. None of the samples that I took show a border color anything near yellow. Orange is OK for visibility purposes but safety yellow has specific tuning for the human visual system.

    And that’s why there are so many yellow-banded meters on the market - the human eye can see them easily. I’m just glad Daimler Benz didn’t trademark red brakelights.

No public wish lists :(
