Please, no more coffee. We saw Colorcalm all over town this week: in The Times, MoCoLoco and Boing Boing. We even got an email from the owner of the company, Robert Norton offering to send us a copy. We accepted, even though we don't have a television. We're curious. We'll go over to our friend Michael's house and put it in his enormous plasma screen television and check it out.
Colorcalm is a $20 DVD that plays soothing cloudscapes on your television in one of 6 different color combinations with audio tracks. It turns your blank box into art crossed with color therapy that will gently invigorate you or generally support your temperament. Are you a red person or a blue?
Red: If you like red, you love travel and you are creative and self confident.
Blue: As someone who loves blue, you are trusting and trustworthy. You are deeply hurt if someone betrays your trust.
Ouch! For $20 we think this is an ingenious idea, and far better for your television than the regular programming. Available online and on display at Conrans on 59th Street. MGR
