Designer Jinsun Park has developed a new concept pen called the ‘Color Picker’, which is able to scan colors from any object and instantly have that color available for writing or drawing.

It is designed with a built-in color sensor and RGB ink cartridges.  By simply scanning a color sample with its built-in sensor, the pen is able to detect the color and use the RGB cartridge to mix the necessary inks and reproduce the target color.

The Color Picker pen will provide artists and designers with a simple and easy way to incorporate the colors of the world around them in to their work.
