re:treat | idee multicolr search lab

Nothing like a little saturation of spring color to make a Wednesday worthwhile.  If you can’t ditch work to go play outside, check out this site, brought to you by the folks at Idee labs.  You pick up to ten colors, and it pulls from ten million (significantly more than a gazillion, but just shy of a bajillion) images from Flickr to match.

Now, this is what I call instant gratification.


Just blue.


Purple, blue, red and green. Just a little nuts.


Green and cream. Just right.

Try it. Change it. Wonder about it. And marvel at the creativity and technical grooviness of the folks who put it together just so we’d have another distraction in our day.

I dare you to try this just once, and then step away. Impossible, and impossibly cool.

    Yes! We build totally addictive tools. But since we are in Canada sometimes we even play with white – like in just selecting a white colour to see what shows up in the search results! Those Canadians… they are crazy people with their fascination with snow… well *my* fascination with snow actually…,ffffff;
    Thanks for trying out the lab. And I love your coloured pencils! Nice find.

    This is such a great find – synonymous with everything I LOVE about the internet… and now I can color this love in all shades of pink! On top of the addictive fun, the multicolr search lab is a cool tool to try out color combos. It’s toolbar bookmarked!
