Readers of a certain vintage will remember the sheer thrill and excitement of the first time they used a pen that could alternate between different ink colours. Back in those days we were limited to around four different hues. Skip forward to 2023, and we're looking at 16 million. 

The newly announced Colorpik Pen uses an RGB sensor to scan colours from your surroundings and draw them in seconds. Essentially, it's like a real-life Photoshop eyedropper tool. But if previous experience is anything to go by, we'd recommend exercising caution before dropping dough on the Kickstarter.
