Nix Mini Color Sensor

By: on October 17, 2017

Nix the guesswork, nix the confusion, and nix the redos with the Nix Mini, a color sensor that scans any hued surface, saves the data to your phone or tablet, and matches it to an existing color library of over 28,000 paint, RGB, HEX, CMYK, and LAB colors.

If you're painting, designing a website, or shopping for X to match your Y, the Nix Mini can capture and analyze colors on surfaces ranging from walls to vinyl, leather to fabric. Once the color is stored you'll be able to browse and match it to paint brands such as Benjamin Moore and Sherwin-Williams, plus see its equivalents in print and digital color classification systems. You can create and organize color palettes, and share them with clients and friends within the Nix app.

The Nix Mini is smaller than a ping-pong ball to carry and made with completely solid state technology for durability. It has integrated high CRI white LEDs for consistent lighting during scans. Purchase of the device comes with free access to the Nix Paints, and Nix Digital Android and iOS apps are included. You can also score a Nix Mini for 30% off retail value for a limited time.
