Benjamin Moore's Pocket Palette
One issue that has always given me trouble when designing new interiors is color matching. I've been considering buying a book of color sheets to always have a paint reference on hand at home, but the fancypants art scientists at Benjamin Moore Paints have saved me the trouble.
Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my pleasure to present the keychain sized spectrophotometer! The Pocket Palette Device can take readings from any type of material around the house, and will examine the color to report the closest match available in Benjamin Moore's paint catalog. Fabric, ceramic, walls, clothes, fruit bowls and puppy dogs can now be scanned to work your decorating into that perfect little bit of feng shui.
Most in store color computers require a one inch square sample chip to make color matches. Instead of worrying about damaging a wall to get the proper sample size the scan can now be taken directly from the wall and the numbers phoned in to the paint shop. The Pocket Palette is auto calibrating, can store twenty recorded samples at a time, and retails for $300.
