Have you ever come across a color that really caught your eye, but you had no idea what color it was or how to find out? Thanks to the SwatchMate Cube, you can find out the color of anything you’d like. I’m not talking about a color used on a web page either (color pickers can take care of that for you); I’m referring to basically any object you might find in the real world such as a shirt, painted wall, piece of fruit, car, etc.
The SwatchMate Cube is just what the name implies: A portable cube that you can take anywhere with you to scan/capture and reproduce colors. It then uses a mobile app (Android, iOS) or desktop app (Windows 7+) to display the scanned color’s RGB, CMYK, LAB, HEX and LRV values. It can also sync with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
You can save colors as favorites and share with friends right from the app as well which is really convenient. As you can see, this can come in handy for many things like color coordinating outfits or home decor, designing websites and much more. The device is small and compact, so it can easily fit into a purse, backpack or laptop back.
Although the SwatchMate Cube is only 11% off until 5/21, it’s still a good deal considering its usefulness. Will you be taking advantage of this deal?
