What it is: An app that relays the exact color of any object to a smartphone or mobile device from the Nix handheld device.
What it does: The Nix Pro Color Sensor app is the companion to the company’s diamond-shaped color sensor device. According to the company, the sensor can accurately scan plastics, fabrics, leathers, woods or any color surface, blocking out ambient light and providing its own calibrated light source for more accuracy. The device will transmit the results directly to the mobile device. Colors can be measured in many different color systems including LCH(ab), CMYK, CIELAB, RGB and HEX. The color measurements can be saved to your phone or tablet and shared through social media or email. The app also includes a full-featured color converter, and can match color values to a variety of paint brands, vinyls, web colors and even crayons.
Who it’s for: Designers
Why kitchen and bath designers need it: When a designer or client has an exact color preference for a space or product, the Nix Pro Color Sensor is a very accurate method of not only finding out the exact color measurements, but also allowing the user to find out where to purchase the color in a paint or other product.
