Nocturne: Free "night vision" app from the maker of Quicksilver
Merlin Mann | May 9 2007
Fans of working in troglodyte mode should have a look at A1c0r's latest creation, Nocturne, an application that generates a "night vision mode" for your Mac -- similar to looking at a negative of a photo.
For years, you've been able to do something similar by hitting "
While A1c0r's improvements on this may seem subtle, they're very useful for allowing you to tweak your own preferences and minimizing distracting, full-color solarization effects.
I love that you can pick your own tint for how the monochrome image is colored. Want an old-time sepiatone writing environment? No problem.
My tip? If you enjoy sitting outside with your laptop, but the sun is making your screen almost illegible, try flipping Nocturne on -- the contrast and darker backgrounds should help make reading and navigating much easier.
Like all Blacktree's stuff, Nocturne is free of charge.
