Utilizing an inner sphere with a light source and a color sensor, the Cube functions as a swatch grabber, recording the color of virtually any object placed underneath it. The Cube then sends the swatch via Bluetooth Low Energy directly to any smartphone into Photoshop; or if the Cube cannot connect to any device, it will store up to a maximum of 20 swatches locally.

For a suggested retail price of $99, the C³ offers a 5MP CMOS Sensor and 120° wide angle lens. It can capture video in 1280 x720 and 640×480, and still images up to 5.0 MP. It’s even waterproof up to 2M. No wireless, though. Images are stored on a micro SD card. Still, don’t you just want to hold one? Or maybe a handful?
