Have you ever been painting a room in your house and made a streak only to realize what you'd thought was "pistachio" is a lot closer to "baby poo"? The human eye, it turns out, is not nearly as well-equipped to see color as we think, and subtle differences between color are magnified when you start slapping them all over your walls. Thankfully, the Nix Mini Color Sensor V2 makes up for the failures of your ocular anatomy.
This portable color sensor is engineered for convenience. Whether you're an artist looking for inspiration or you've found yourself in an argument over the definition of "beige," the Nix Mini makes it easy to identify the colors you see in the world in an instant. Pair the Nix Mini with the Nix Digital app, and you can just place the Nix on any surfaces you see to instantly match to more than 100,000 brand name paint colors, or match to sRGB, HEX, CMYK, and LAB colors. The sensor blocks out all ambient light and provides its own calibrated light source for accurate readings every time.
The Nix works on any surface, from painted walls and vinyl to leather, fabric, and plastic, so it's perfect even if your vibe is "Frasier's dad's chair." You can match to the myriad paint in the Nix library, or you can browse color matches from leading paint brands like Benjamin Moore, Dulux, Farrow & Ball, and Sherwin Williams. Then, you can save and organize your favorite color palettes in the app, instantly share colors with friends, and more in the app. Mashable writes, "The Nix Mini Color Sensor could be an awesome tool to feed your innate perfectionism," so go ahead and shove this thing up against your friend's wall to copy their color scheme. They'll probably only ask a few questions.
The Nix Mini Color Sensor V2 is the Photoshop eyedropper tool come to life. Normally $99, you can save 15% when you get yours for $83.95 now.
