The Color Eyedropper Pulls Pigment Inspiration from the Physical World

With the Color Eyedropper, the modern graphic designer is no longer limited to the digital palette of his computer program. This remarkable stylus concept boasts the ability to extract a full spectrum of shades from one's tangible environment, allowing him to draw tonal inspiration from fabric, paper, paint and more.

Ergonomically modeled on the form of a pen, this device is held like a writing utensil and touched down to the surface of the selected hue. One button allows the user to scan the tint at the gadget's tip and a display screen generates the CMYK and the RGB numeric notations that signify the unique coloration. It seems that these must be manually transferred to a virtual palette from Khaydarov Alexander's Color Eyedropper, but perhaps the next version will integrate a USB connection or wireless technology.
