Cube is an easy-to-use color finder product created by SwatchMate — an Australian-based product development company. After downloading the free Cube Companion app to your mobile device and following the simple instructions, the Cube is ready for action. From there, you:
– Find something to scan
– Position the Cube on the object’s surface
– Tap the button to capture the color
Your smartphone will automatically display the information in a table, which you can share in a text message, upload to social media, or email to yourself for future use. You can also name the color before saving so you can refer back to it later.
The Cube provides a color reading in the sRGB, L*a*b* and CMYK color spaces. The Cube also matches to the nearest colors in Copic (marker) color as well as major paint brands-Additional color libraries: Behr, Dulux, Dunn Edwards, Ecos Organic, Interpon RAL, Montana MTN94.
Inside the Cube there is (surprisingly!) a sphere. The sphere contains a light source and a color sensor, and has a small sample hole through which to capture color. A controlled sequence of light is shone on the surface, before being redirected back into the sphere toward the color sensor.
To capture color simply place Cube directly onto a surface, then tap the Touch button to take a color sample. While sampling, Cube’s Status Indicator will glow softly and then triple flash to indicate a successful scan. Cube stores up to 20 colors when not paired to desktop or mobile applications. Cube’s Status Indicator will triple flash red when there is no more space in memory.
