Today marks the Kickstarter release of Scribble – an amazing pen that can sample virtually any colour and reproduce it in ink…
The gadget uses a colour sensor and microprocessor to pick up any colour you can get your hands on and mix the ink required to reproduce it. There is also an option to reproduce the colour digitally on a tablet or smart phone using the free Scribble+ app.
The pen can store more unique colours than you could ever sensibly hope to use (think upwards of 100,000) in its internal memory, allowing you to categorise and tag each shade, making the library easily searchable. The app will also give you the HEX Code for each colour as well as the CMYK/RGB values, meaning that you can reproduce it anywhere and whenever.
So, there will be two Scribble pens: the Scribble INK and the Scribble STYLUS.
The INK will be able to reproduce exact colours on regular paper and will feature a colour sensor, 1 GB of internal memory that will store over 100,000 UNIQUE colours, a rechargeable battery, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, a micro-processor and five ink cartridges.
The STYLUS features are exactly the same as the INK, minus the ink cartridges.
One of the most outstanding features of the Scribble is that, since it can reproduce any colour, it replaces thousands of marking pens, thereby greatly reducing the huge amount of plastic waste cluttering up our landfills all over the world

Personally, I think this product looks incredible and I would absolutely love to get my hands on it and take it for a rainbow spin. Is that a hint, Scribble? Yes. Yes it is. Kindly send me one.
