Rediscover the childlike wonder of coloring with the new Scribble Pen.
The small device scan a color from a real object, and turns it into ink so you can actually draw with that exact color.
Let’s break it down.
An RGB color sensor actually scans the color and sends the data to a micro pump that mixes the ink.
The creators of the pen, Scribble, sought out to create a tool that “allows an artist to borrow the colors around them.”
The pen can be charged quickly via micro-USB cable, and the lightweight, lithium-ion battery will give you about 15 hours of unlimited drawing.
According to the makers, it’s capable of copying 16 million unique colors. However, the Scribble Pen can only save and store up to 100,000 at a time. And did we mention compatibility? You can transfer captured colors into Photoshop or CorelDRAW, for use in all your projects.
If you’re wondering about quality, here’s the lowdown. The advanced ink is lightfast and water-resistant. The company claims that, “no matter the weather, it won’t fade away.”
Three versions are available: the Stylus for paper art, the Scribble for drawing on a tablet, and the Motley, which has two retractable tips for both paper and touchscreen surfaces.
The Scribble Pen and the Scribble Stylus have an accompanying (free) app that helps users keep track of their saved colors.
