Whether you’re an artist, a professional designer, or merely looking to redecorate, color can be really important. When you find the perfect hue, the Nix Mini Color Sensor lets you capture it. This brilliant smartphone accessory is now only $69 (Orig. $99) at 9to5Toys Specials.

From painted walls to leather satchels, the Nix Mini lets you grab color from any surface. The device utilizes white LEDs with a high color rendering index, meaning you get an accurate match every time.

Seconds after the scan, you can see the result on your phone. The companion app instantly provides the RGB, HEX, CMYK, and LAB codes, meaning you can recreate the shade in your favorite design app. In addition, Nix compares the color against 28,000 paints from leading brands (incl. Benjamin Moore, Dulux, Farrow & Ball, more).

The app lets you save all your color discoveries and create your own color palettes. You can then share these with friends and colleagues via email or social media.

Worth $99, the Nix Mini is now just $69 with free lifetime access to the Nix Paints and Nix Digital apps.
