Colour Picker Concept Pen by Korean Jinsun Park

Korean artist and designer, Jinsun Park, has designed a concept pen that adapts Photoshop’s eyedropper tool into our reality world. Just scan and the pen will ink out the exact colour for use.

At the tip of this pen is a sensor camera that captures a complex, real world colour. Then, like an inkjet printer, a micro processor in the pen will calculates the mixture of red, green and blue ink needed to replicate the color photographed by the camera. Ink with the perfect proportions then flows out of the ball point on the other end of the pen tip.


As for now, this pen stands as a concept only (no prototype yet), but it is likely to create shockwaves in the world of digital design, especially if Jinsun Park can include CMYK inks instead of RGB. With technology getting more advanced, we could be using this Color Picker pen sooner, rather than later.
