Who at Microsoft keeps using eye-bleeding colors? What's with the Spoiled-Apricot brown?

I so miss 1998-2003's movies when computing was supposed to be cool. Seriously, that could be a fun project for someone - re-map Win ___ 's ugly design into sliding stylish TV/Movie type UI's. The buttons would map 1-1, but you could have your choice of skins, say: Transformers, Matrix, Johnny Mnemonic, and Species 8472!

One variant could have the start menu be triggered from the middle of the screen, and then it flowers outward like a firework blast. Or maybe a Stargate.

This is wicked cool:

‘Cloaking’ device uses ordinary lenses to hide objects across range of angles


To build your own Rochester Cloak, follow these simple steps:

For their demonstration cloak, the researchers used 50mm achromatic doublets with focal lengths f1 = 200mm and f2 = 75mm

* Purchase 2 sets of 2 lenses with different focal lengths f1 and f2 (4 lenses total, 2 with f1 focal length, and 2 with f2 focal length)
* Separate the first 2 lenses by the sum of their focal lengths (So f1 lens is the first lens, f2 is the 2nd lens, and they are separated by t1= f1+ f2).
* Do the same in Step 2 for the other two lenses.
* Separate the two sets by t2=2 f2 (f1+ f2) / (f1— f2) apart, so that the two f2 lenses are t2 apart.


* Achromatic lenses provide best image quality.
* Fresnel lenses can be used to reduce the total length (2t1+t2)
* Smaller total length should reduce edge effects and increase the range of angles.
* For an easier, but less ideal, cloak, you can try the 3 lens cloak in the paper.
