If you spend a lot of time starring into your computer screen, spending hour upon hour cavorting through Adobe Photoshop, you’ll find the above picture very, very familiar. We all know that once we get up from the computer we like to indulge in real world delights, sometimes scorning the computer completely after too many mind numbing hours of work; but, after all that time things start to look a little weird without some of the features of our digital world to which we’ve become so accustomed, which is where this Photoshop frame by Irina Blok will come in so handy. Now, when you come home or leave your studio and you start to feel anxious because in the real world you have no windows to click in and out of, no erasure tool to clean up that spilled spaghetti sauce you can look to your Photoshop frame to give you just a little bit of ease. It’s ok, because now the digital world can be a part of your real world. And it’s damed hilariously awesome if you ask me.
Breathe easier, Adobe Addicts.
(Now, if only you could actually play with the photos, too, even if it’s only by included a layer above the photo so you could doodle over it or something with dry erase sorts of markers, for example.)
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?
