Try it, its creepy. Its probably best to click "Maximize" at the top right of the video before playing.

Well, I followed the instructions, but the B&W image still looked B&W, but with a bluish tint. But interestingly, I could see the bluish tint dissipate as the cones in my retina adjusted.Try it, its creepy. Its probably best to click "Maximize" at the top right of the video before playing.
The "blue" cones are identified by the peak of their light response curve at about 445 nm. They are unique among the cones in that they constitute only about 2% of the total number and are found outside the fovea centralis where the green and red cones are concentrated. Although they are much more light sensitive than the green and red cones, it is not enough to overcome their disadvantage in numbers. However, the blue sensitivity of our final visual perception is comparable to that of red and green, suggesting that there is a somewhat selective "blue amplifier" somewhere in the visual processing in the brain.
