Finding the right color can make all the difference to your design project. With the Nix Mini Color Sensor, you can capture any hue from the real world. This pocket-sized device works on pretty much any surface, and it’s now just $69 (Orig. $99) at 9to5Toys Specials.

Whether you’re a creative pro, or simply wanting to redecorate your home, Nix Mini can help. Whenever you come across an eye-catching shade, you just place the sensor on that surface. It works on walls, fabric, leather, and more.

In seconds, the Nix Mini provides an accurate reading via the companion smartphone app. You get the RGB, HEX, CMYK, and LAB colors, and the app can also search through 31,000 brand name paints (incl. Benjamin Moore, Dulux, Farrow & Ball) to find a perfect match. You can save every scan and even create color palettes to share with friends and co-workers.

The device itself measures just 1.5 cm across, and the battery will last for 60,000 scans on a full charge.

It’s normally $99, but you can grab the Nix Mini now for $69 — that’s 30% off.
