If you’re planning a decorating project and want to ensure you pick the rights hues for your home, then try the ColorReader – a decorating gadget which avoids picking the wrong shade of paint which will make your heart sink instead of lifting your mood.
Smaller than a deck of cards, ColorReader is an ultra-portable, Bluetooth® connected color selection device that works in conjunction with the ColorReader mobile app to precisely identify colors based on the NCS® 1950 and RAL® Classic, Design and Effect color standards.
Users can create and manage color palettes by saving and sharing paint colors.
With industry-leading color matching performance, ColorReader saves users valued time and money by matching color instantly and accurately, removing the subjective guesswork that comes with traditional fan decks.
The ColorReader allows you to find a palette of complementary colours, which will let you compare and contrast different styles and different variations of colour and save them for future reference. It's a great gadget which is ideal for decorating and design.
It’s even been described as “a fabulous tool” in a review by Forbes, which added: “The problem with using a smartphone to accurately record color is that they aren’t very accurate. Things like the amount of light entering a room, the color temperature of the light, and reflected color can affect the accuracy. There is a nice little app from Pantone that uses a smartphone’s camera to try to match a color to a Pantone swatch number, but available light will always be the big variable and affect the result.
“Previously, if you want to get an accurate reading of color, you had to rely on using a colorimeter or fans of printed color swatches for reference, then you’d need to trust your eyes in order to assess the color accurately. Now there’s a third way to record color accurately when you’re on the move.”
