This smart pen prototype wants to scan the world for every imaginable color

The Cronzy Pen lets you turn the world into your personal Adobe Photoshop canvas. The gadget has the ability to scan and store up to 16 million different colors. You can either aim the pen at any object to sample its shade à la eyedropper tool, or pick a color from the accompanying app.

While other smart pens only work on compatible smart paper that you have to buy separately or as part of a writing set, the Cronzy Pen can write on various surfaces since it uses actual ink, courtesy of a miniature cartridge embedded into the tool. It also can reportedly last for days without the need to charge.

Here’s how you can get one.

I’m a freelance photographer based in Berlin, working on own projects and commissioned assignments.
