If you’re a TNW regular, then you’ve probably heard us talk up the Nix Mini Color Sensor and its raging coolness before. Its ability to analyze and identify any color, then spit out the specific print and digital information to replicate that tone on a computer screen or even in the real world is almost magical.
If you’re a designer, decorator, artist, or work in an industry where color matters, it’s a no-brainer device to own, especially at its current $69 price, a full $30 off retail from TNW Deals. Even if you’re just a fan of neat tech gadgets, this one is worth the investment.
All you’ve got to do is take this ping-pong ball-sized sensor, put its electronic eye on any surface (including painted walls, vinyl, leather, plastic, fabric and more), then let the Nix do its thing.
It automatically rifles through its vast color library and finds matches among all RGB, HEX, CMYK and LAB colors as well as over 31,000 brand name paint shades. If your color can be found among the offerings of paint giants like Benjamin Moore, Dulux, Farrow & Ball, Sherwin Williams and more, the Nix will find it. At worst, the Nix will give you the closest alternatives to help you find exactly the hue you’re looking for.
The unit works in tandem with the Nix app, cataloging your colors and organizing your favorite palettes for easy reference. You’ll never have to lug swatches down to your neighborhood paint store again.
The Nix is lightweight, can clip to a keyring or travel bag and has a built-in battery capable of running over 5,000 scans on a single charge. At 30 percent off, this limited time deal is the perfect opportunity to get a Nix while still saving a few bucks.
