It doesn't matter what object you choose to scan. The Nix sensor can scan any type of surface, including painted walls, vinyl, leather, plastic, fabric, dyes, and more. It blocks out ambient light and provides its own calibrated light source so you can get an accurate reading every time.

You never know when colour inspiration will strike, so bring along the Nix everywhere you go. Its small size (1.5-inch x 1.5-inch x 1-inch) and lightweight construction make it easy. Plus, it's Bluetooth compatible so you can connect to the app anywhere.

The Nix is getting rave reviews around the web, and one happy customer says, "Exactly as advertised. Great product. Extremely helpful when remodelling a house as we attempt to coordinate colours." 

The Nix Mini Color Sensor V2 is usually priced at $99, but you can save 15%, dropping the price to $83.95.
