Nix Color Sensor Copies Colors from Physical Objects: Real Life Eyedropper Tool

by Lambert Varias

One of my earliest posts here was about the Color Picker, a concept for a pen that let you copy colors from your surroundings and then doodle with that color. Matthew Sheridan brings us a step closer to that magical device with the Nix Color Sensor. It’s basically half of the Color Picker pen, letting you copy colors from physical objects.


Actually the Nix was designed to do more than just copy colors. With the help of its complementary desktop and mobile apps, Nix can save and place notes on your captured swatches, show you the RGB, HSL, HSV, Lab, XYZ, HTML, or CMYK values of those colors and even look for a paint store that sells the matching paint.

Pledge at least $99 CAD (~$96 USD) on Kickstarter to get a Nix sensor as a reward. The iOS and Android apps will be bundled with the sensor; I’m not sure if the Windows and Mac apps will be free as well. I wonder if Pixy can be modded to work like Nix.
