Whether you're a professional artist or currently thinking about what color you want to paint your spare room, finding the correct hues can be challenging. And while you can take photos of things that inspire you, like a particularly gorgeous flower you saw on your trip abroad or vibrant paint color in that restaurant you visited recently, a camera phone doesn't always accurately portray the exact color you love.

Ideal for those looking to put whatever inspires them right in their pocket, so to speak, this Nix Mini is a game-changer. With a simple scan, this color sensor can give you an exact shade, allowing you to find its matching paint color for whatever project you're working on these days. In fact, its accompanying Nix Paints app can find up to 100,000 color matches.

The Nix Mini sensor is great to have on hand, perfect for capturing whatever catches your eye as you go about your day. And no matter what hue you find, you'll get matches from top paint brands, like Benjamin Moore, Dulux, Farrow & Ball, and Sherwin Williams. And unlike your camera phone, this sensor has an innovative design to block out ambient light, providing its own calibrated light source for the most accurate readings possible.

Extremely durable and small enough to fit in your pocket, it's easy to carry the Nix Mini around. And its accompanying app also lets you share different colors and inspiration with customers, friends, and colleagues, which is ideal for designers, painters, and more. So it's no wonder this little wonder has earned rave reviews online, including 5 out of 5 stars out of 15 happy customers, along with praise from CNET and Mashable, who deemed it "an awesome tool to feed your innate perfectionism."
