Grey? Blue? Purple? It can look different, depending on the context. Let's talk about color perception, color temperature, and the history of laundry.

I think I saw something about this on a tv show a few years ago, It showed two colors separated from each other, but when they were put together, they were actually shown to be the same exact color

So, according to that colour sensor... your hoodie isn't gray. Or at least not exclusively. According to the manifacturer of the paint that was referenced by the sensor's software, your hoodie is... "[a] deep purple [that] has a generous gray undertone suggestive of storm clouds on a distant horizon."

When you changed the lighting at 3:00 it turned pink, not yellow. Also, I would like a color calibrator like that. What is it called and how much are they? Google is being unhelpful.

This reminds me of an ongoing argument my uncle and I had over whether the house across the street from where we used to live was blue or gray. It was light blue. Every time I go back there, it's still the color I remember it. I don't care what my uncle says; it was blue.

I'm surprised there's no mention of the white+gold/blue+black dress, because the colour perception depends on what type of light your brain thinks it has and therefore subtracts out.

I watched this video on the 21/4/21 at 5.20 am [no colon, since YT'll think I'm giving a timestamp] in Uruguay, which is during autumn/fall on my phone with the "Blue light filter" set on... So imagine having to turn it off so Tom doesn't sound as if he's gone loopy.

This slight blue colouring trick is also used in the paper industry, so paper looks more white, pure and clean.
