Incredible Pen Draws Any Colour In The World

We always thought that those old multicolour pens that we had at school would pretty much be the pinnacle of the writing experience, but the internet age has come and wiped the floor with it.

The truly amazing Scribble pen holds the potential to sample any colour from the real world, before instantly drawing it, either on a physical page, or on a smart device: essentially, this is the Photoshop colour picker in real life.

It uses an RGB sensor and a microprocessor to 'read' the colour in front of it and then either transfers that colour to your digital device via bluetooth, or - in the more-exciting physical version - uses a mixing chamber to combine its five inks to produce that colour for real. It can store 100,000 colours in its internal memory.

You can preorder via their website right now (Scribble ink is $149.95 (£88) and Scribble stylus is $79.95 (£49)), and the product is expected to launch on July 7th.
