Witch color do a blob will like/freak most ?
An experiment from FJ Deminière.

File available on my drop box folder:

FJD's Blob Folder

Experiment with 8 Leds from Infra-Red to White passing by Ultra violet.

IR Red Orange Yellow Green Blue UV White

What we need:
A Black « Petri » Box (and current generator). To be scientifically serious, we should ensure a same lighting for every led : only the color should be experienced here, not power !

Side View of the box cut A-A’

Top View

The experiment process:

A Blob is put on the central food spot.

One picture every xx hour/minutes during xx days

Where will the Blob eat first ?
Where will it stay most ?

Where will he never go even if hungry ?

Alternative process:

A Blob is put on the central food spot and let it's grow to every food spots in the dark.

When the blob is everywhere, light up the leds.

Where will it stay most ?

From Where did it goes faster ?

One picture every xx hour/minutes during xx days

Any other good questions ?

What is the photo-sensitive organ of the Blob ?

For sure I will !

ASAP (just I need a blob to start I got anything else so getting a complete kit is non sense... and also not ring community compliant)
