Along the same sci-fi lines as the 3D printing pen or paper-to-screen sketchpad, the latest internet craze in Kickstarter-driven doodling technology is set to arrive on the crowdsourcing site on July 7. It’s the Scribble Pen, a “compact accurate color picker” that can read and recreate up to 16 million unique tones and hues.
Scribble, available either as a conventional ink pen or as a mobile device-compataible stylus, works with an advanced color sensor and microprocessor backed by LEDs that illuminate and scan whatever you like.
The pen can then mix the corresponding ratio of inks or pixels to recreate that color, either on paper or on screen, and save more than 100,000 of them in its internal memory. Through a bluetooth connection to your iOS, Android, or Windows gadget, the Scribble+ app, you can also take these tags, organize the colors and convert them to RGB or CMYK.
Sounds like fun for everyone, with an added benefit for interior designers in its ability to scan paints, upholsteries, and spontaneous inspiration to save for later or to show to clients. It’s practically a magic wand.
