New paint colors invented by neural network
For this experiment, I gave the neural network a list of about 7,700 Sherwin-Williams paint colors along with their RGB values. (RGB = red, green, and blue color values) Could the neural network learn to invent new paint colors and give them attractive names?

One way I have of checking on the neural network’s progress during training is to ask it to produce some output using the lowest-creativity setting. Then the neural network plays it safe, and we can get an idea of what it has learned for sure.
By the first checkpoint, the neural network has learned to produce valid RGB values - these are colors, all right, and you could technically paint your walls with them. It’s a little farther behind the curve on the names, although it does seem to be attempting a combination of the colors brown, blue, and gray.

Gravity Blanket: Kickstarter Project to Help Sleep, Insomnia & Stress | Fortune.com
$280 heavy blanket.

[[Called Gravity, the blanket’s selling point is its weight—there are 15, 20, and 25 pound options —which is meant to simulate “the feeling of being held or hugged.”

Despite this lack of peer-reviewed evidence, it’s not hard to see why the blanket has taken off. An estimated 50 million to 70 million American adults have a sleep disorder; We’re a nation of insomniacs. Gravity’s pitch, to fix the problem with the “feeling of being held or hugged,” is intuitive and comforting.]]

Millport: island of dreams.

(I'd point out that Millport's the town and the island is Cumbrae, but then I'd be accused of portsplaining.)

An Oral History Of Radiohead’s ‘OK Computer’ | ClickHole
"Thom Yorke: Gum is the impossible meal. It’s illegal to swallow, so you have to always be chewing it. A fabulous crime is that I actually swallow my gum all the time. I swallow 20 pieces of gum on 'The Tourist,' and you wouldn’t even know it because I’m so fast."
