Our eyes aren’t built for distinguishing the subtle differences between every single shade. This Nix Mini Color Sensor, however, is like a color-matching superhero.

While capturing color samples from a screen may be simple, colors out in the world are tough to differentiate. That’s where this nifty little sensor swoops in to save the day. Just scan any surface (from vinyl and leather to fabric and plastic) and the high-CRI white LEDs in the sensor match it to a library of over 28,000 colors, including RGB, HEX, CMYK, and LAB, as well as most well-known paint brands.

Peep how it works:

At the size of a ping-pong ball, it’s easy to tote around anywhere. If you’re looking for a holiday gift for your graphic designer friend or just trying to paint on your walls before company arrives, there’s no better choice.

Take the guesswork out of choosing colors. Get the Nix Mini Color Sensor from the Daily Dot Store for just $64.99, reduced from the original cost of $99. Plus, snag an extra 15% off while you can using code GIFTSHOP15.
