Interesting, possibly swoon-worthy, concept pen by Park Jinsun. It has a mini-scanner that allows any color you see out there in the real world to be turned into ink via a RGB cartridge inside the phone that reads the chip and mixes the correct ink color. While it’s pretty awesome to be able to create any color ink that you want, I’m more excited by the tiny color picker function. I’d be pleased as punch to have such a tiny pin-pointy device to able to extract the RGB info from pretty much anything. I know about the Color Cue which is supposed to do pretty much that and tell you its corresponding Pantone color; but, it’s kind of big and from the reviews I’ve read (that I remember) isn’t *super* great. Having a doodad like this would be a lot easier than scanning in random objects in order to use the color grabber tool in Photoshop, and you could do it anywhere(!).
Ooooh. And! What if it had a little screen so that you could view little color swatches of the colors you scanned. AND! If it also had a USB port so that you could upload the color swatches and RGB info to your computer. There’s a definite swoon right there. Yesiree, that’s what I want.
I should probably learn how to make this stuff, huh?
