“The moment I realized the LED was mimicking breathing (I first experienced it with a white iMac) was the moment I realized just how far Apple goes to make computers for humans.”
As opposed to gnomes, but yes, I get the commentator’s point. Apple creates an intuitive experience melding software and hardware. The boring chart above represents their patent for a status light on Macbooks that replicates the typical 12-20 breathes per minute rate of most people in a resting state. While not a big fan of the pulsing in a dark space, I appreciate its origin.
