A magic pen!

A magic pen!

I came across this pen on the internet when trying to find a way to match a colour I had drawn to a pantone for one of my products. I thought this was such an inventive solution

This pen is incredibly clever with its ability to scan in a colour. Not only does it do this but it can then mix its three colour cartridges to create the same colour. Impressive, right?

Clever Pen to scan colour from objects

As a designer I am always using colour, and I know from experience it is really hard to sometimes create the exact same colour as what I see. Hours spent mixing paint to the perfect hue no longer needs to be spent! All you need to do now is scan an item with the top of your pen. The colour is then displayed digitally and the colour is mixed with its three cartridges.

Another great thing about this pen is also its size. It is so compact that you can just bring this anywhere and have any colour. Carrying a pen in your pocket is considerably better than carrying a pack of 50 pens in your rucksack!

Can scan from any different Hue

As impressive and useful as this is, I personally think great art has a lot to do with the artist creating an impression of what they see before them. If every artist had this tool I think that the art world would be significantly different!

Well done for Jinsun Park for inventing this!

Another image that I have come accross is this;   

Spray paint any colour!

This spraypaint bottle has a pretty similar idea behind it in the sense that you have three different cartridges. I like this idea alot as you can change the amount of each cartridge to get your desired hue.
