Write in Whatever Color You Want with Scribble

Scribble Pen

 

You know that eyedropper tool in most image editing programs that lets you lift and use whatever color you want to, as long as it’s there on your screen? Well, the Scribble pen works like that, only it’s infinitely cooler because it’s a pen, for crying out loud. One end is the scanner (aka the physical eyedropper), while the other end is the pen which does all the writing.

Scribble uses 16-bit color sensors and Bluetooth technology to make it happen. What’s impressive is the fact that it can store up to 100,000 different colors. So scan that shirt, the rose that you just got, or your neighbor’s curtain–every color is within reach, now that you’ve got a tool as nifty at this.

Scribble will be available in two versions: the ink version, which comes with ink cartridges so you can write, scribble, and draw to your heart’s content; and the stylus version, which works with the Scribble+ app to make colors come alive on your mobile device. A Kickstarter campaign is planned for the pen. You can sign up on the Scribble website here for updates.

It’s a smartphone accessory that lets you scan the object with the desired color and view it instantly on your phone right after.
