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.
