Color-picking pen copies RGB values from your PC to paper
Beginning with software like Adobe Photoshop, graphic designers have seen numerous advancements that have made their work into child play. To add to this long collection of brilliant hardware and software developments, we have the Color-picking Pen that is capable of reading RGB values from your computer (just like the color picker tool in Photoshop) with the help of a camera and RGB sensor. These RGB values are later used to mix up an ink color that matches it, using the RGB cartridge, thus enabling users to draw with the exact same color that they see on their screen. This pen greatly bridges the gap between digital art and the canvas. It allows artists to pull out salient features of both fields.
The Color-picking pen is designed by South Korean designer Jinsun Park. So far this stands as a concept, but it is likely to create shockwaves in the world of digital design sooner than later.
