The real life colour picker is now real

When building a website, a tool that could give you the colour code of anything on your screen would be awesome – not quite as awesome as this concept I talked previously about, but still pretty great.

So a company called Pantone must have thought so too and they just announced Capsure, a sort of handheld scanner – just place it on anything and it’ll ID your hue in CMYK and RGB.


unfortunately it costs US$649 and that is pretty hefty even with the Aussie Dollar being strong at the moment.

If you have the money to spend you can pick it up here

  6. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
