K5 Custom Image Button

Nine modes which have Pentax preferred options but lets you customise it with sliders.
There is an hexagonal diagram with vertices denoted by colours inside which are two other hexagons one of which moves about when you alter the sliders. Its very pretty and someone has taken a lot of time and effort into its design. Can anyone explain its use? Does anyone use it?

The little diagram shows which color channels are boosted by the image profile. And no, it's probably not of much use because who doesn't shoot RAW? (and I think that just looking at the photo gives you a better sense of the profile)

More to it

Not sure how it indicates a boosted colour channel? There is an inner grey hexagonal? On some settings you can manipulate your animated hexagon to be inside this fixed hexagonal. I think maybe there is more to this little schematic than first meets the eye. Thanks for your response..all the best
