The Scribble Ink Pen is a very unique piece of engineering. A couple of years ago we would have thought it to be impossible to fit the technology and the mechanics of a printer into a small ink pen. But today, we have exactly that sort of thing, and more. The Scribble Ink Pen can read any color, and then write using that color, using real ink. Sounds like magic, but it’s a product that’s soon going to be hitting Kickstarter.
The Scribble Ink Pen is equipped with a 16-bit color sensor at its back. This sensor allows the Scribble to pick up any color that it comes across. Once it has read the color, you can simply begin writing/drawing using that color. Sounds incredible and it still is once you get to know what’s happening inside this little device. Just like a printer cartridge, there’s a mixing chamber in the pen that’s intelligently controlled by an ARM9 processor.
Once the color sensor has read a color, the processor mixes just the right amount of RGB ink to produce the exact color that was read. What’s even more incredible is that if you have a tablet, you can simply continue drawing on the Scribble software in the color you just chose on the Scribble Ink Pen. The pen itself is equipped with a gigabyte’s worth of memory, and that allows it to store around 100,000 colors. That should be plenty even for the more artistic types.
The Scribble Ink Pen is an incredible piece of engineering that’s sure to wow every person who sees it. If the company can deliver a bug-free product to the customers then they deserve serious commendation. The Scribble Ink Pen will retail for around $150 and Kickstarter backers will be able to get a 20 percent discount on that. The only issue we can see coming up is the notorious price of RGB ink and the cartridges. If the ink cartridges for this pen are too expensive they might become the Scribble’s Achilles’ heel. Whatever the case may be, we can’t wait for it to hit Kickstarter and get funded. We want to get our hands on it.
