Scribble INK and Scribble STYLUS say they can scan, record, and then replicate on paper or digital screen any color on earth. Any color. On earth. Just by holding one of the pens up to the color--whether it be on a shirt, a wall, or a bloody nose--and giving it a second or two to memorize the spectral formula. Holy crap, can you imagine how many boxes of Crayolas and colored pencils a Scribble would save? How many more nuanced shades artists and kiddos who dig drawing their stick figure families will be able to achieve in on time, and with minimal effort?
Here's hoping Scribble Pens, currently a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, are legit and truly on their way to market.
Scribble INK and Scribble STYLUS function similarly on their paper and digital mediums. To replicate a real-world color, users simply hold their pen of choice up to it and hover briefly as the Scribble's scanner captures and stores the color in its internal memory. Once the scan is complete, the new color is instantly ready for outpour on paper or screen.
Scribble INK is lightfast, water resistant, and filled with long-lasting cyan, magenta, yellow, black, and white ink. The pen's accompanying app will monitor ink usage and let users know when colors are running low. The app also tracks battery life and memory use (once the Scribble Pen learns a color, it stores it permanently unless the user opts to delete). Scribble INK and STYLUS Pens are both compatible with iOS and Android systems, and can sync colors to mobile devices, or share them with friends at any time. Scribble is also Photoshop/Corel compatible; colors will transfer directly from Pen to computer screen.Scribble Pens will have full nib sets with a range of 6 stroke weights: 0.3mm; 0.5mm; 1.0mm; 1.5mm; 2.5mm; and 3.71mm.
Scribble Pens run as a Kickstarter campaign through September 15, 2014.
