Here's the science behind the irresistible appeal of this bag: Seeing red quickens our pulse, pumps adrenalin into our bodies, and literally makes us “stronger” when these effects increase muscle strength. Red affects our eyes as well. In order to see the color red, the lens of the eye has to make a special adjustment to focus on the red wavelength, and this focal adjustment makes red appear to advance or “zoom in.” So when this red bag beckons “come hither,” the attraction of red is not merely psychological, it is physical!
