Stumbled upon an amazing concept pen this morning that should have any sketchers out there salivating. Jinsun Park has designed a pen that scans colours from anywhere, convert it into RGB and have it available to draw with instantly. All you do is place the colour sensor at the top of the pen against whatever you want the colour of and press the scan button. The RGB cartridges inside will mix the ink and you are ready to go. This way you’ll be able to capture the colour of the world around you in a ridiculously easy way.
My first question arises around the ink it creates. Does it create a reservoir of the chosen colour? If so, what does it do when you want a new colour? If it creates ink on the fly, is there a delay from the ink being created to when it comes out? Otherwise I think this is an amazing concept and I hope somebody makes it soon.
Just imagine how easy it would make sketchnoting?
