Readers of a sure classic will keep in mind the sheer thrill and pleasure of the primary time they used a pen that would alternate between completely different ink colors. Again in these days we have been restricted to round 4 completely different hues. Skip ahead to 2023, and we’re 16 million.
The newly introduced Colorpik Pen makes use of an RGB sensor to scan colors out of your environment and draw them in seconds. Basically, it is like a real-life Photoshop eyedropper instrument. But when earlier expertise is something to go by, we would suggest exercising warning earlier than dropping dough on the Kickstarter.
“You needn’t purchase one million pens, simply purchase one pen with one million colors!” Screams the Colorpik Pen’s Kickstarter web page. The pen apparently combines an RGB color sensor with 4 refillable ink cartridges. To discover a explicit shade, the holder merely wants to carry the pen towards it and press a button to begin scanning. The 4 ‘base’ inks will then be mixed to create that color.
The pen is outwardly rechargeable via micro-USB (no USB-C, sadly) for 15 hours of efficiency. It’s accessible with a number of pen nibs together with ballpoint, marker and fountain, and is on the market to pledge for on Kickstarter from $149.
Nevertheless it’s positively price noting that the idea may not be as progressive as Colorpik Inc claims. The Scribble Pen claimed to have the ability to do the identical factor again in 2016, however in keeping with a number of Reddit threads, ended up considerably of a catastrophe, with the Kickstarter cancelled the prototype allegedly revealed to be pretend. The Colorpik Pen appears to be like remarkably comparable, proper right down to the dated micro-USB charging port, so we would method this one with warning.
