The Nix Mini 2 gives artists, designers, contractors and remodelers a quick and easy way to match colors exactly. The tiny color sensor connects to an iPhone and reveals the precise shade of real-world objects.

It’s a powerful tool for matching paint or discovering the exact digital representation of a color.

Color-matching power in a tiny package

The Nix Mini 2 measures just 1.5 inches long by 1.5 inches wide and 1 inch tall. And it’s light enough that it can be attached to a keychain or even hung around your neck with the included lanyard. Its solid-state design makes it tough enough for everyday use.

Precalibrated out of the box, it’s designed to block out any light that may confuse its readings. (It uses its own carefully tuned light source to deliver accurate results.) The color sensor connects to your iPhone via Bluetooth and recharges with an included micro-USB cable.

All you need to do is charge it and connect it. The Nix Mini 2 takes care of the rest.

Know any color instantly

When you need to know what a color is, just place the Nix Mini 2 on the object in question, and the color sensor will take an accurate reading. There are two apps you can use.

Nix Digital will give you the color in CYMK, LAB or sRGB HEX formats. It’ll help you nail the shade, so you can make your website look just like your office, or match old materials to new designs.

Nix Paints does the same type of thing, but sorts through a database of more than 100,00 paint colors from major brands like Sherwin-Williams and boutique companies like Farrow & Ball. Each scan provides the closest match possible. With the proper paint revealed, you can touch up chipped furniture or finally get that perfect match for an obscure color.

Save on Nix Mini 2 color sensor

We live in a world of color, yet precision on which color is which can be elusive. The Nix Mini 2 color sensor solves this problem for $59, 40% off the $99 MSRP.
