Wow--now THIS is a pen!

I can't decide. Is this a solution looking for a problem? Whatever it is, it is smokin' hot!

It's called Scribble--and it's a pen with a scanner on one end. You move the scanner over an object and the pen mixes hues from the five printing colors--cyan, yellow, magenta, black and white--to match the color of the scanned object perfectly.

Sixteen million shades!

You can also attach the result to a Bluetooth or micro USB and the color can be used digitally. It store 100,000 shades.

The pen is about $150 and the stylus $80. A Kickstarter campaign will be started soon. Investors get the low prices.

I could see a paint brush instead of a penpoint--no more palettes! And maybe that is too mundane--what uses and adaptations come to YOUR mind?
