RGB-to-Hex Conversion RGB-to-Hex Conversion Question: How do I convert RGB values of a color to a hexadecimal string? Answer: The RGB-to-hexadecimal converter algorithm is simple: make sure that your values are in the range 0...255, convert R, G, B to hex strings, and then concatenate the three hex strings together. Convert RGB to Hex color values here: function rgbToHex(R,G,B) {return toHex(R)+toHex(G)+toHex(B)} function toHex(n) { n = parseInt(n,10); if (isNaN(n)) return "00"; n = Math.max(0,Math.min(n,255)); return "0123456789ABCDEF".charAt((n-n%16)/16) + "0123456789ABCDEF".charAt(n%16); } Notes: The script parses the input R, G, B values as integers using the standard function parseInt(string,10); the second, optional argument 10 specifies that the value must be parsed as a decimal number. RGB/hex codes for named colors supported in most browsers are listed below: See also:

Positronic brain A positronic brain is a fictional technological device, originally conceived by science fiction writer Isaac Asimov (1920–1992).[1][2] Its role is to serve as a central computer for a robot, and, in some unspecified way, to provide it with a form of consciousness recognizable to humans. When Asimov wrote his first robot stories in 1939 and 1940, the positron was a newly discovered particle and so the buzz word positronic — coined by analogy with electronic — added a contemporary gloss of popular science to the concept. Conceptual overview[edit] Asimov remained vague about the technical details of positronic brains except to assert that their substructure was formed from an alloy of platinum and iridium. The major point of the positronic brain, however, was to make robots fragile. Within his stories of robotics on Earth and their development by U.S. The Three Laws are also a bottleneck in terms of brain sophistication.

Le centième singe Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Les macaques japonais de l'expérimentation Le centième singe est une expression désignant, à l'origine, un phénomène supposé par lequel un apprentissage se serait répandu depuis un petit groupe de singes à toute la population des singes de la même espèce, une fois qu’un certain nombre d’entre eux aurait été atteint (masse critique ou transition de phase). Dans le courant New Age, l'expression se rapporte à une propagation paranormale d’une idée, d’un savoir ou d’une capacité au sein d'une population humaine (comme dans le concept de résonance morphique de Rupert Sheldrake) sans qu’il y ait de transmission visible et une fois qu’un nombre clé de personnes aurait acquis ce savoir ou cette capacité. Le phénomène est généralement considéré dans la communauté scientifique comme une légende urbaine.
