Euros

[ #1953 ]
Well, I like euros, but while I'm getting used at it, I have to say that some of those new coins suck. The 10 cents and 2 cents coins look almost the same : same shape, same size. Their colors are different, says my wife. But I'm color-blind. Always remeber to design color-blind-proof UIs. (oh, and Color Forth sucks, too ;-)

  • All coins are made to be recognizable not only by colour-blind people, but also by blind people. The 2 and 10 are quite different despite being the same size. What I like about euro coins is that a side view (par la tranche) reveals them to be all different. The 10 cents coin has large dents and the 2 cents coin has some sort of line.
