Capture color from the real world with the Nix Mini Color Sensor

This tiny device scans any surface to provide an accurate reading.

Color plays an important part in our lives. Whether you’re a professional designer or merely planning to redecorate, the Nix Mini Color Sensor helps you capture the perfect hue. This keychain device provides an accurate scan from any surface, and the companion app will even find the matching paint. You can grab the Nix Mini now for just $69 via the PopSci Shop.

You know the eyedropper tool in Photoshop? That’s the one that lets you click anywhere to get a color sample. The Nix Mini sensor performs the same role in real life. Any time you stumble upon an attractive shade, you simply place the sensor on that object or surface. The Nix Mini works on wood, fabric, vinyl, leather, and many other materials.

A few seconds after you scan, the results appear on your smartphone. The companion app gives you the RGB, HEX, CMYK, and LAB codes for digital design, and you can sort your scanned hues into color palettes. In addition, the Nix Paints app searches through 31,000 paints to find a match. The library includes Benjamin Moore, Dulux, Farrow & Ball, Sherwin Williams, and other brands.
