A Tape Measure for Color


Here’s How the Nix Color Sensor is Revolutionizing the Color Industry:

Use Any Color System

The Nix app can convert between any digital or physical color system. Want to know what color a flower is in HTML or CMYK? Or what color your condo's walls are in brand name paint? Nix can do it.

User-Friendly Design

Nix is buttonless—it can't get much simpler than that. At only a bit larger than a ping pong ball, Nix fits as comfortably in your bag as it does on your desk. Its soft touch coating makes it comfortable—not to mention it’s super durable.

Best-In-Class Accuracy

Swatchbooks and smartphone apps are greatly affected by ambient light and shadows. Nix's patent pending design blocks out all ambient light. Built-in LEDs provide maximum accuracy in all conditions.
