The Color Muse Is An Eyedropper Tool For Real Life


You know the Eyedropper Tool in almost every photo editing software? It allows you to identify the exact color of any spot on an image just by clicking on the part you want? It’s pretty useful and now you can do the same thing in real life with the Color Muse. Just place it over anything you want to color-match, and the small handheld device will scan and output not only which color you’re looking at, but a list of possible combinations that would look good with it. It connects to your smartphone, which opens the door to a lot of functionality, such as getting the namebrand paints, tile, floorcovering and other products [that] match the scanned color. It’s also quite inexpensive, at $49.

GO!Scan 3D is a Point and Shoot 3D Scanner


3D printing is all the rage these days. There’s no shortage of 3D printers on the market, but there are limited choices when it comes to 3D scanners. One is the Photon scanner, which generated a lot of buzz a few weeks ago and is currently up for funding on Indiegogo. Then there’s the GO!Scan 3D, which is basically a 3D scanning gun.

Manufacturer Creaform boasts that it can provide the ‘easiest portable 3D scanning experience’ with it being a point-and-shoot and all. The GO!Scan weighs 2.4 pounds, so it’s lighter than most scanners out there and makes it the most portable of its kind. Since it easily fits into a carry-on case, you can take it with you to scan stuff on the go.

iConvert Lets The iPad Scanning Frenzy Begin

By David Ponce

I’m being overly enthusiastic here. I mean, lets face it: who still has paper?… Well, ok, maybe a couple of you still do, and I guess that’s why the iConvert exists. I guess my point is that no one is excited about paper; it’s just one of those figments of a distant past we still have to live with. And for as long as this is the case, and people are still buying iPads, there might be a place for this portable scanning machine. Simply dock your tablet, launch the app and scan. The feeder tray accommodates paper between 2 and 8.5 inches so letters down to small photos can be scanned with ease. It’s done at 300dpi and the images are saved in your photo gallery, in JPEG format.

It’s $150 and ships in February.
