When you’re designing something for a client or planning to redecorate, finding the right color is really important. With luck, you might stumble upon that perfect hue. Nix Color Sensors allow you to capture any shade from any surface, and find the matching paint. Right now, you can grab the Nix Mini for $69 at the PopSci Shop.
Measuring just 1½ inches across, the Nix Mini is genuinely pocket-sized. Whenever you come across an eye-catching color, you simply place the sensor on that surface. The Nix Mini works on walls, vinyl, leather, plastic, fabric, and more, with high CRI white LEDs providing a consistent light source.
In seconds, you get the RGB, HEX, CMYK, and LAB colors on your phone. The companion app also searches through 31,000 brand name paints to find a match. The library includes Benjamin Moore, Dulux, Farrow & Ball, Sherwin Williams, and more.
You can save your readings in custom color palettes, and share your selections with friends and colleagues. It makes a great gift for digital artists and home improvers.
For creative professionals, the Nix Pro Color Sensor provides some key upgrades. This device offers even better accuracy, with a larger paint library, A/B color comparisons, and custom color libraries.
