Colour Picker Concept Pen by Korean Jinsun Park

Korean artist and designer, Jinsun Park, has designed a concept pen that adapts Photoshop’s eyedropper tool into our reality world. Just scan and the pen will ink out the exact colour for use.

colour picker pen green

At the tip of this pen is a sensor camera that captures a complex, real world colour. Then, like an inkjet printer, a micro processor in the pen will calculates the mixture of red, green and blue ink needed to replicate the color photographed by the camera. Ink with the perfect proportions then flows out of the ball point on the other end of the pen tip.

As for now, this pen stands as a concept only (no prototype yet), but it is likely to create shockwaves in the world of digital design, especially if Jinsun Park can include CMYK inks instead of RGB. With technology getting more advanced, we could be using this Color Picker pen sooner, rather than later.

Hide News Updates of Casual Contacts in Facebook

It is well and good to keep in touch with friends via Facebook or other social networking sites, but being informed of their every move on the Net is rather trying on the soul. One does not need to know what prize a friend has just won in an online game, or which shopping website another friend has just visited. The news feed from Facebook can be rather annoying unless one is a stalker.


How can we silent the stream of news bombarding our senses every moment we’re online? Park the cursor to the right of a news feed item, and a Hide menu will appear. Click on that to hide all news generated from the particular game or quiz. Alternatively, you could hide all of a contact’s updates from your feed, especially if the person is not one your closest friends.
