    Color picker pen
    I just ordered this pen. I can't wait to try it out.

    The idea is simple. You hold the pen up to an object and scan the color. The RGB ink cartridge inside the pen mixes the color for you, and then you can write with it.

    I do wish that it displayed the #hex value of the color, so I could use it in my designs. Maybe in version two?

    Where did you order it from?

    Great idea! Exactly how it was described long time ago in a science fiction fairy tale I read then. I would also love to order these for real at last! Is it this one?

    Where did you get one of these? How can you order one if it's just a conceptual design?

    I don't understand how you could have ordered this. Either you're lying or you got ripped off.

    It's a conceptual design - and a flawed one at that. RGB can't print on paper, it would need CMYK cartridges, and maybe then it would work..
