Imagine possessing the power to match the color of anything. The Nix Mini color sensor does exactly that and sends all the details right to your iPhone. With this handy gadget, you can color-match old wall paint, piece together a palette for your next project and do much more with a simple scan.

And now it’s cheaper than ever. Until May 31, you can get the Nix Mini 2 color sensor for only $59.97 (regularly $99).

Nix Mini 2: An eyedropper tool in real life

If you’re big on DIY projects or have a creative mind, the Nix Mini 2 is the tool for you. Maybe you love the color of a blanket, stuffed animal or lipstick and want to paint a room that color.

The Nix Mini 2 color sensor makes it all possible. Pair the sensor with the Nix Digital and Nix Paint iOS apps to take colors from real life and translate them into digital information. You can scan any surface, including walls, vinyl, leather, plastic and fabric.

Then, the Nix Digital app gives you sRGB HEX, CMYK or LAB color information. You can use that data to create a color palette for remodeling a room. Or save your favorite colors for future reference in upcoming creative projects.

For color-matching, use the Nix Paints app to pinpoint more than 100,000 paint colors from leading brands like Benjamin Moore and Sherwin-Williams. This is excellent if you need to touch up the paint in a room but aren’t sure what the original color was.

Get accurate, on-the-go readings for matching any color

You can easily bring the Nix Mini 2 along to the hardware store, on nature walks or anywhere else, since it’s less than 2 inches wide. With it, you can find inspiration, scan colors and send digital color samples to friends to get their thoughts.

There’s no need to worry about bright or dim lighting affecting scans, either. The Nix Min’s sensor blocks out all ambient light. Plus, it comes with its own precalibrated light source to provide accurate color readings.

It’s no wonder the Nix Mini boasts a perfect 5-star rating. “This product is great for matching older paint which has changed color from its original color,” one verified buyer wrote. “The Nix Color Sensor has saved me from having to totally repaint a wall.”
