The Scribble Color Picker Pen uses a color sensor and microprocessor to detect colors and mix the required ink for drawing. There is also a ScribbleStylus which connects with Scribble+ mobileapp bringing all the captured colors via bluetooth to the users cell phone or tablet. Both are small enough to fit in a pocket or purse and will make copying a color so much easier.
It is essential to put new technology into the correct perspective the color images are not truly accurate.. This pens allows one to directly “grab the color by pointing the sensor at the actual flower. Often customers will bring in a n object to “match’ , or try to describe the color. Need to add extend or repair an item of clothing, furniture or even paint. This can come in very handy! All in all customization is growing across all design disciplines and for a long time a tool that accurately “grabbed” color was desperately needed.
Some colors simply are not picked up accurately by digital cameras. An added bonus – despite the use of common values, all digital screens are not calibrated correctly… now a simply reference swatch can be sent to verify colors simply by writing or drawing with the pen.
This is definitely going to be an important arsenal for any creative entrepreneur… yet there seems to be a couple missing links, on the consumer end. Im not sure that all but the most avid consumer would invest and since most screen are calibrated differently the “customer” may “see a different color’ and while the verification by post option mention above may work .. it defeats the value of “instant” digital access. The press info suggest use for mobile and tablet. While many cloud based apps exists most creatives I know use their desktop or laptop to create and so need access to color on this medium.
The app may make some difference but how how this translate across all digital devices and makers may vary.
