Color Picker pen concept matches ink to object

Designed by Jinsu Park, the Color Picker is a brilliant concept for anyone with an artistic bent. Using a scanner, it detects the exact shade of anything you point it at before mixing the inks from a RGB cartridge to reproduce the color.

While electronic versions of the idea have been around for some time now — let's not forget the Inkdropper tool on Photoshop — this is the first non-virtual version that I can think of.
