Color Picker by Jinsun Park

Color Picker is an innovative design of a concept pen that can scan colors from anything around and instantly use the color for drawing. After placing the pen against an object, the user just presses the scan button. The color is being detected by the color sensor and the RGB cartridge of the pen mixes the required inks to create the target color. This superb device will help people to observe the changing colors of nature. With color picker, all range of artists will be able to cerate a more sensorial and visual insight of their surrounding nature’s colors.

  1. It's a great idea indeed, and considering the rgb/cmyk issue we can't suppose it will work on paper, so the 'only' feasible (and sellable) option today is to target this pen to computer design.

    Let's say working on a Wacom tablet and Photoshop then picking a color from your surrounding – photo – magazine – fabric … to work with it on screen, that would be excellent for any kind of designers.

    If you consider my idea tell me lol

    Good luck

    Sure, any capable artist can mix colors, but it takes a very able one to mix an exact match, and takes anyone more time than it owuld with this nifty pen, RGB aside.


    great idea with the quartz. I agree that changing colors whenever you want would be a treat, getiing only one color would be cool, but also sad to us color freaks.

    conggratulations on the design, hope it happens.

  3. RGB?!!! amazing idea but RGB ?! hehe this must be a joke! so what colors would be mixed together to get a yellow color?!?! 😀 dont try this at home! 😛

  4. I love to buy color picker for resell distribution in my country.

    Please provide contact for correspondence.

    Thank you & Regards

  11. hi my name is Matthew smith i am currently making a documentary about up coming new tech that will be coming out soon i was wondering if we may come and film you and ask some questions about the product can you please email me at

  12. as C. M. Novess III said, RGB only works with light. Pigments require the CYMK system. Any designer knows that!

    This is totally fiction… please don’t believe it!

  13. Sounds like a student project concept- nice idea but it will never work…It will be too expensive to produce and possibly impossible to make…How does it work? What mixes the colours?…can you fit the components inside?

  14. Great tool!

    If there is a way to transfer the color to computer via USB/bluetooth/wi-fi, it will be highly useful for photoshop designers


  15. this is awsome i always lov to draw but never got the colors i wanted n this salves all my probs i wonder how much it is to get it better yet wen it comes out

  17. I want it, i want it, i want IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    where can i get 1????????


  18. This is only a concept, since it is missing the key component of "how to mix the ink". Being the engineer, I would estimate a run of 100,000 pens to cost somewhere around $79 each. That is assuming they get a simple solution to the ink combination issue.

  19. Dear Sir,

    We are very interested in this product,we wonder what is the whole sell price and also where we can purchase it?

    Thnx &Best regards!
