The human eye is not engineered to detect subtle differences in color. That’s why, even when you get a swatch, it’s still exceedingly difficult to find the right color when you go to the paint store or tell the difference between colors unless they’re right next to each other. The Nix Mini 2 Color-Matching Sensor, however, was made for color, and this pocket-sized tool is a savior for those who frequently work with color.
The Nix Mini has a high-resolution sensor that supports precise processing and automatic error detection, so all you have to do is hold it up to a surface and it will get an accurate reading of that color. Via the Nix Paints app, it instantly matches the color to more than 100,000 brand-name paint colors or to sRGB HEX, CMYK, and LAB color codes. You can save and manage all of your scans in the app for easy access later when it comes time to paint.
