Okay, I came to snark but the article ended up being interesting, after all.  I had no idea that's why everything in the hospital is that ugly green.

Here comes the farked article.

Same here.  Interesting little article.

Okay, now I want to poke inside a Vulcan sickbay, and an Orion girl.

Sounds logical to me.

Same here. Though I did find a certain irony that someone who clearly could explain why certain color combos are useful to the eye, and how annoying afterimages can be left their website design on black background with bright white, small font text...

Didn't Dr. McCoy explicitly state that the scalpel (and thus surgery/invasive cutting into the body) was a barbaric vestige of the (recent) past?

Scrubs, too.  Any blood splatters look black, and patients/other people aren't as shocked as they would if you were wearing white.

in The Venture Bros., pretty much all the old labs and gear from the heydays of Jonas Venture carry this same teal-gree kind of shade.  It does give a mid-century modern era feel, of a place that was once high-tech and now hopelessly old fashioned.

They ran out of paint?

I was going to make some comment about only noticing the short skirts on the nurses. But I learned something. I wonder if it was Jasper Fforde's inspiration for "The Mildew" (maybe obscure).

Article: Interesting.

Ironic: Article's white font on black background.

Or: What Leo Bloom's Freakout said.

Glad I saw this article.  I haven't checked in on that site in ages and am glad to see there's a couple episodes I have to catch up on.  And it looks like we should be getting a few more within the next year, along with a re-cast of Kirk after episode 12.

It's also kinda funny how the entire article is mostly about "discovering" what the art directors knew and put in place fifty years ago when they designed the damn thing in the first place. Hardly anything on film, even way back then, was an accident: it was all carefully planned ... by people!

This reminds me of an article that explained the Soviets found a cheap way to help their military remain calmer in their vehicles, by painting the insides a shade of sky blue.

Whether it really calmed them, or they created fake studies to show it calmed subjects and let the placebo effect work its magic, I don't know.  Either way, interesting concept.

Yes, please comrade soldier... Tell me, does the blue make you much calmer, or extremely calmer? And do not be afraid to speak freely, as always.

Good article, but the website should have followed the "eye-ease" advice.  White text on a solid black background like that is brutal on the eyes.

Level 5 of Wildfire was the same color. The book noted that the colors of each level were very, very deliberate.

I dunno about "calming" but I always felt like the teal-turquoise color of Soviet cockpits was much more aesthetically pleasing and less stressful to the eyes than the high-contrast black/white and grey panels in Western cockpits.

Then again, the interior design of most Western military vehicles is focused on being able to read things at night. The Soviets always had inferior night/foul-weather capability so they probably focused more on day-lighting.

No, there's been a lot of studies on the psychological effects of color, and it's not just a placebo effect. Light blue is calming.  Red makes people tense.

That is my absolute favorite image on fark.  It shows up at just the right time where I am starting to tire of the nerdiness, but haven't quite abandoned the thread.

Interesting...

So even back then, people knew that bright white backgrounds are annoying as f**k. How much longer till web page designers learn this basic fact?

// and WTF is up with the new trend of light gray text on white? ffs.
