The world’s first pen that can replicate 16 million different colors is called Scribble and it will be out soon! ! Working like a real-life Photoshop “eyedropper” toolScribble, this high-tech pen can scan a color from any object and instantly transform its ink to match it. The ideal present for drawing addicts.

Scribble works by using an advanced color sensor and bright led lights to illuminate and capture colors from any object around you.

There are two Scribble models, one that works just like a regular marking pen on regular paper, and the other that works with your tablet, smart phone or laptop (it is compatible with iOS, Android and Windows Phone).

The Scribble pen and stylus pairs with our mobile app to instantly sync every color you scan directly onto your favorite mobile device. Your colors become more useful when they are organized, tagged, searchable and converted to various color models such as RGB and CMYK.

The Scribble pen is expected to launch on Kickstarter on the 7th of July, 2014

More technical info :

How long would the ink last?

Scribble has been meticulously designed with ink management in mind. Your ink will last a long time, up to several months depending on your usage.

Where do I purchase new ink?

You may purchase a new ink cartridge via our website, or by placing an order for a refill in the Scribble app on your mobile device.

Would I be able to recharge just one of the colors or would I have to buy all of them at once?

Yes, you will be able to replace a single color. In fact, replacing a single ink color is extremely easy, way easier than replacing your regular printer’s ink cartridge. To make it even simpler for you, Scribble provides a series of instructional videos that will help you replace your ink cartridge in no time.

Would the Scribble App be free?

YES, the Scribble mobile app is completely FREE.

How long does it take to recharge the Scribble Ink and Stylus?

Recharging your Scribble requires very little effort and time as it has a maximum charge time of 2-3 hours.

Is it safe for children to use?

Absolutely. Scribble has been designed to be very safe for everyone – Kids, Teenagers and Adults alike.

Does the pen require connection to the internet?

NO. Scribble connects to your mobile phone via Bluetooth and it requires no Internet connection to work.

Is it true an INK refill would cost me an arm and a leg?

Absolutely NOT. The Scribble ink cartridges would be very affordable to the public and won’t be very pricey at all. Expected price – $3-$10

Is the Ink cartridge recyclable?

Yes, it is. One of the best features of the Scribble is that, since it can reproduce any color, it replaces thousands of marking pens and thus will greatly reduce plastic waste that is filling our landfills all over the world. When using the Stylus the amount of waste is reduced to practically nothing, making the Scribble one of the greenest coloring tools ever created. With Scribble, it’s easy being Green!

Do you ship Worldwide?
