Does Colour Exist?

Andrew Parker

TEDxSydney 2013 · 4 May 2016

Andrew Parker studied marine biology and physics at the Australian Museum and Macquarie University, and then moved to Oxford University. After founding the 'Light Switch Hypothesis' – that the Big Bang of evolution was triggered by the evolution of the eye – he now works on biomimetics, copying good design found in nature. This includes hummingbird colours for paints, non-reflective surfaces on insect eyes for solar panels, and water-capture devices in Namibian beetles for collecting clean drinking water in Africa.
