A sidestep from my usual post but this is a product I’ve kept looking back at over the past week. It’s call The Cube by SwatchMate (found via the wonderful blog Yanko Designs). It’s a device that does something very simple – identify the colors you see out in the everday world.
At its heart this is a very simple concept and many will gloss over it as silly. But finding amazing colors is a very tough problem. Especially colors that look good in certain environments and with certain materials. Inspiration can come at any moment and this would likely help in remembering them.
It’s like a Shazam for colors.
