Check out the SwatchMate Cube, a cool new gadget that captures the colour of any surface and sends the colour via Bluetooth to your smartphone or directly into Photoshop, showing you the RGB, CMYK or Pantone colours used in the scanned surface. The founders are three Melbourne based engineers and recently won both the Sydney and the Melbourne Design Awards. The team say they’re doing for colour what Shazam does for music. Co-founder Paul Peng says the cornerstone of the their product design was feedback from people who use colour, “We talked to home renovators who couldn’t find any affordable tools to match paint colours,” says Paul, “from there we realised a range of people would benefit from a product that could instantly match colour.”
