The Scribble Pen: How Doodling Became Sophisticated

If you can look at a hue and accurately declare its CMYK or RGB value and conjure up ink in that very color, this might not seem very magical to you.

However, if your eyes just dilated at the thought, you may want to check out the new Scribble Pen.

Simply put, the Scribble pen is your real life eyedropper tool and pencil all in one. The pen contains a compact and advanced color sensor with LED to illuminate and capture the color information from any object you point it at.

Although pricing is not yet confirmed for the ink cartridges, Scribble currently expects the price for refill cartridges to fall in the $3 to $10 range.

The stylus model of the pen (Scribble Stylus) uses the information gathered by the sensor to change the color of your bush in whatever doodling software you’re using on your compatible device.  The Scribble Stylus is currently compatible with iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices.

So that users don’t go crazy trying to hunt down the exact hue they had scanned before, the Scribble+ mobile app pairs with the Scribble pen to keep a color palate of every color that’s been scanned. Colors can be organized and tagged, making the searchable library even easier to navigate.
